There should be a "filler" plate at the top of the turret, it goes across, under the gun mount. Back edge of plate, is just behind the gun mount. I came up with using two props, on flex drives, running perilell to the bottom of the hull. That would match the thrust line of the nozzles. Then two rudders, behind the props. CaptCB

For the what-its-worth department, I've come across jet drives on Taobao for next to nothing. I've never seen them myself but at $9 apiece, they may be worth checking out.

This jet is a perfect copy of the Graupner for a fraction of the price. It's an NQD drive. A move to brushless makes improvement. They sell them on Ebay.

nqd rc jet boat. sickly powerful. brushless 14.8v (1 min 1 sec)


NQD 757-6024 TURBO JET
