Jetfoil-boeing 929

My Boeing JETFOIL family.
It is JETFOIL family of Boeing to which I did the design production in the original that introduces here.
It surfaces from the surface of the water both with the scale ship by the reaction propulsion of the water jet by the water jet propulsion, the submerging type hydrofoil, and the giro posture control as well as the real thing and it runs.
Please contact me if there is an interest. There is a production request from foreign countries so far, and it produces, and are results delivered.

Those are really cool. How much does something like that cost? I assume they are electric powered.

That has to be the coolest RC hydrofoils boats I have ever seen!!! If I understand correctly you are using a gyro to keep the Hydrofoils balanced while they are up on the foils?

Hi!. Joe san
Thank you for my jetfoil model's having the concern.
Some costs hung from $1800 in $2000 because all were handicrafted goods.
Power is The water jet pump of original production is driven with Brasshuresmortar of the LiPO battery drive.
A small giro is used for the posture control.
This concludes my report.

Hello!. .Soar Dude san
Thank you for my jetfoil model's having the concern.
The flap that uses a small giro for the RC helicopter for the posture control, and installs it in the hydrofoil is moved and posture is controlled.
This concludes my report.

I was a marine system engineer on test crew on the Boeing jetfoils from mid 70's to mid 80's built 28 of them I would love to get one of your models to "fly" around Seattle,Washington USA they were built in Renton Washington how fast are they & can they stop in two boat lengths from foilborne to emergency stop like the real ones do, I know I was on the boats many times to test them it was my job. turn on a dime and give you nine cents in change I like you use water jet propulsion. can you make it so the foils retrack, the news media would cry if they saw one why don't we have a dozen of them flying in puget sound. the design is 40 years old they are still years ahead of there time can I get some video of them flying please email me back thank you p.s. the boat did not set to sail it flew.

Hi!. jpmierz
I am sorry for the delay of the discovery of your mail. It is very glad.
Though the jetfoil is a design 40 years ago
It is taking an active part in the active service now, and, now, the ship that changes into this seems not to appear. And, running is very wonderful.
The improvement of JETFOIL in the future is continued.
My target is JETFOIL of a complete scale.
