Chut chut parles pas ! Arrêtes de bouger ! xD J'ai éclater

What propeller is used ?

We should make a remix of that to fit all of that in a Surfboard like Lampuga did.

Awesome work turbi ! It works nice.

what is the diameter or the shaft on your motor?

The part labeled redresseur

Does the outer propeller casing / pod act as the main prop?

Hey guys I made a boat with two of these jets it is still in progress though I just deigned it. When I'm done I'll post it.

Where did you get the propeller and the axel extender?

Could you please share where you got yours now? Thanks

Where did you get the motor

yeh the film canister works we made a ROV and it worked like a charm but it might be too big

do you have a boat that uses on or two of these for power?

never for the moment

The motor is not waterproof but it is just a prototype. The goal is to put the system in a watertight hull.

The SeaPerch folks had a good way to waterproof their motors, involved a film canister and wax from a toilet wax ring seal. Here is a link: http://www.seaperch.org/buildhttp://www.seaperch.org/build

is that motor waterproof? or how do you plan on making it waterproof?

Quit! Daddy is filming!
