I will attempt to use a modified Feetech FS90R for the drive line of Jean Bart.
I have removed a gear wheel and glued to other gear wheel together.
Original gear wheel configuration.

One gear wheel removed, and the two remaining glued together, with a brass porthole as distance keeper.

Does it work... Well yes, but the rotation is rather slow.
Maybe to slow, but on the other hand i've not used this rx(Tactic TR1424) and corresponding lipo for over a year.
So i'll charge the lipo and try again.
The propeller is the original one from the kit with a 2mm shaft fitted in a Ø 2/3 mm brass tube. Thats gives some friction and might have to be improved.

Finally a kitchen sink test. It floats very high and I expect dome ballast to be needed, or maybe a bigger lipo.
