spins for a momment and you dont go anywhere cause theres
no water in the drive , well my boat is doing that on the simplest ,
little bumps , sometimes even in calm water with no rapids at all , it will
just loose prime :s , i have a flex drive , with the cooling system mod , and
a grate for a rock gard which i thought was the problem at first ,
so i took it off , but it still did it. can someone please help me?!

sorry for the block of txt im on a smartphone. any help would be greatly
appreciated, thanks for your time guys.
How is your boat weighted? At the rear it should have most of the nozzle under water. If its sitting too high it will lose prime almost instantly whenever you go over anything that's why I have my big servo and esc almost touching the back of the boat. So with the battery ahead of the motor it still has enough weight at the back to keep the jet drive in the water.

Try shifting your battery right back so it's sitting over the coupling and see how it goes.

Thanks for the welcome guys. I was just going to wait for one of Steves bigger boats with the kmd 28, but after talking with him, I'm going to order a small boat first. Getting it in clear so I can paint it what colour I choose....maybe orange or a bright blue. Somthing visible anyway. Getting the full kit with raido gear, motor and batteries. I just have to wait until he gets home from this holiday.....then is build time!
Oh, and videos will be taken for sure....as I mentioned, we have some great water here, which will suit these little boats realy well.
Cheers lads!

umm chi doggy likes girlfriend pics best.

This is an un-official NQD thread. The current group, (late 2012-early 2013), is comfortable exchanging recipes, (just beg me for the best Chocolate Chip cookie recipe in the WORLD), to favorite YouTube vids, to something that relates to something close to a jet boat, and always ready to discuss anything about the little Jet boats you are just starting to see value in.

If the thread Owner, (Energy), ever decides we aren't on task, he can boot our posts, but most of this recent clubhouse will not stop. A new thread could be started in seconds and would be propagated by many of the same half sane hobbyists that are here right now. Enjoy us if you can, or tell Steve we are insufferable if you must, but we will prevail as the happy boat nuts we have become.

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm.............................. .. 2106 posts in this thread!
All on task! wellllllll maybe not

any way Welcome Mard
and as I ordered from Steve just today, would you kindly tell him his vacation is over?

Thanks
John in Merrill
PS the boys were worried that the seagreen color I used for text here was strange. I switched to dark green to ease their little minds

And don't forget those of us who aren't even half sane!!

Btw, let's not forget the Canadians and New Zealanders on here as well. They may be more polite but they're as daft as the rest of us. Fire, did they get your private creek running yet?

Mind you there's greeks, scandinavians, and people from all over South America, the Far East ......etc, etc. We've even got an Italian speaking Illinois resident. One nation under NQD
