I have used pianowire inserted into a plastic tube twice, the outerone is glued in place and the Inner one can move freely.

Made a tiny loop at the end and inserted a small piece of piano though the hole and bend it a bit to stay in place. It will rust i know but that was what i did on the prototype and ended up in the design.

Is it possible to see a video of a PBR MKII out of the water with the water jet working and the reverse buckets activating. I would like to see the actual working movement upclose.

Thanks

George,

Take a careful look at these photo's originally posted by CaptDH and myself. The jet "thrust" goes strait through the nozzle (forward), unless the reversing door is lowered, this puts the thrust out the bottom of the nozzle, at a forward angle, there by, giving a reverse.

Sort of like how reverse is on a jet powered aircraft.

the first part of the video.
PROBOAT ALPHA - PBR MK-II METAL REVERSE (3 min 10 sec)


Have a look at the pictures in the previous post, the ones that we have on the ProBoat is so over sized.


have a look at my build thread in an effort to make a more scale right version of the entire waterjet https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/show...-the-PBR-MK-II

Just thought I'd share my current build out of this boat. I'm trying not to hack up the boat and be able to easily swap out the scale structures easily.

Glad I found this thread. I'll be converting the drives for reverese soon

Is there anyone here who has retrofitted their Piber MK II with Shapeways 3D weapons for better detail look.
If so, could you post here a link to the various weapons you bought?
I am scratch building the 1/18 version and of course it needs weapons etc.

Thanks

Hello Mattdk

This is George again. I was wondering if you got my last email of Sept. 16 ?
I am asking through here because I am not sure if you got it with the issues of PM not going through according to some.

Let me know and how we can go further.

Thanks
George
