Too busy to get any of my boats out for over a year now.  Most of mine are up for sale - except the jetsprint.  I will never sell it.

Hi all
Seems quiet on here? Any new projects? Still using Chinese jet and aluminium hull, no changes.
Off the subject but still a boat I finished a large airboat 60cc aluminum construction. Good when the weed is on the dam.

I run a fpv setup on the jettec 1100. I've got the hs1177 camera, 200mw transmitter and leather in a waterproof enclosure. Works great for rapid running. I do recommend a screen mounted on remote compared to goggles though

Some on board videos to see what you will see

Hi Guys

Seems very quiet here these days !
Anyone tried FPV on a jet boat, Sounds like fun to me.
I have a small wing with FPV which is just awesome to fly. I got to thinkn how cool it would be 100mm off the surface
in a jetsprint doing tight turns, spins and really fast acceleration.
Years ago i sometimes would fit a camera in the boat and get some awesome footage, be even better with FPV  Grin
Any help, advise or don'ts would be greatly appreciated  Roll Eyes
kindest regards

I know it's been a while, but thought I'd update you to the progress on the Gravitix Davette. Maidened it on 6S: eventually backed out of the 'weeds') and found the best location for the batteries/battery trays. Installed pool noodle flotation, found some 1:4 scale pilot figures and carved/painted the face on one to be comical. Used the hands/forearms from a wrestling figure to hold the 'broken' steering wheel and matched the paint to the figure. Made some seats, mounted them and the figures on the 'canopy', and made a roll cage for easy carry. The figures are screwed on from underneath so I can remove them if I decide to paint it. The canopy goes within the cage and fastens with a brass locator in front and a thumbscrew on either side. The foam on the bow is for protection while I'm working on it. Want to put a model engine - or at least headers on it, but it works out to 1:5 scale. 1/4 is too big, 1/6 too small. But a 1:5 model engine is nonexistant as far as I can tell. I'll probably make an 'engine block' and shorten some quarter scale headers to fit. Then it will be on to making it go fast. I was running a 4 blade impeller that came with the pump, but have a stronger 6 blade replacement supplied by RC Sub Workshop to try. The blades don't overlap, but there is no gap. It should provide more torque. The Swordfish esc and the TP Power inrunner can each handle up to 12S, so will be interesting to see what I can squeeze out of it before it blows up.   Shocked

Approx what is the weight of ur sprint ?
Im using the graphine batts Grin, 6s  @126amp max logger reading(2.7Kw), although its pretty close to the 65c rate
Were the difference is, i'm on 6s 22 volt and reaching the current limit of the speedy.
if i go to 12s i'll be at 5.4Kw !

Im using this motor, which i can drop the KV in half if i decide to double the voltage to 12s.

My sprint is ballistic as it is on 6s and would be even alongside urs, my boat is 6kg with a 5000mah batt, it would be totally out of control @ 5.4 Kw  Shocked
