Allright were going to go with the jets we didn't like the way this turned out, he's really worried about performance, Frank suggested to stay away from the jets from a lack of power and use a prop.
I cant say on this being I never used the jets before but now we will find out! so hang on got to cut out the shaft now and patch the hole.

Great news and a wise choice. The PBR's were quick but they were not a off shore racer. The jets will do the job I bet.

PBR from Franks Mosquito boat hobbies


Please go with the brushless motors with the water jets. I was not completely happy with the performance with brushed motors, but I am overjoyed with what I have with the brushless ones.

I got the prop shaft and port nozzle removed and the holes filled back in, and waiting on the jets to arrive. So Im just going to do some detail work on some items that really need it!

Super job on the guns and mount. How did you make the new vented parts for the barrels?

Thanks guys,

Graveman those are brass tubes drilled out, and shorter cut off from a size larger for the sleeves.

Terry the jet drives are graupner just do a google search, you will probaly have to get them from over seas we are having a hard time getting some.
