We have most of the bits for this combo set, including the special fittings kit for launching and retreiving the Vegesack. I have been into RC for almost 2 years now but I have concentrated on RC planes (both Nitro and Electric).
You can probably power it with a lead acid motorcycle battery and maybe put in two surplus 12v car fan motors, the posibilities are endless because this thing is HUGE!!!

Hi, Just finished building a jet boat from nothing, though I would post it here as it was very hard for me to find info to build it. Well I made the basic jet drive that I plan on using, and started glassing the hull together.
I didn't do any details like roll cage, driver, and motor, they will come after I make sure the whole thing works! For my housing, to help keep the metal prop from messing up the wood housing, I rolled .020 aluminum and bonded into housing.


I tore out the old stuff, re-cut the intake and outlet in hull, bonded in the mini jet, mounted new motor and touch up painted the exterior. I think I may make a mold of it so I can make it with only 1 or 2 layers of fiberglass instead of all the 2 layer pieces glasses together(makes 4 layers) that I made it with this time. A piece of styrofoam blew up to my door(literally) so I used a box cutter and cut the shape out, I then completly covered this to smooth with a thin layer of bondo. In its standard form the jet-boat operates without a servo-operated reversing flap on the Mini-Jet propulsion unit, which means that a low-cost 2-channel radio control system can be used. Import charges previously quoted are subject to change if you increase you maximum bid amount. Then while this was curing I used thick cardboard like paper to make templates for all my hull pieces. I decided since this is small and does not pack too much power I can hopefully get away with a combo of wood, resin and fiberglass. I rolled some .020 aluminum into a cone shape, then used Jb weld to hold the seam and make a flange to attach noozzle.
This is my new jet as it is with the Trinity 19T 540 motor from my Slash before i went brushless! I used a stick battery sideways in front of motor to move center of gravity right up to 50%. Lucky because I didn't think it woujld be jumping waves like that and didn't bring anything to fetch a flipped boat. The hull is not quite as flat as it should be, but it's always windy here and you can see the waves in the video. That way with a mold I can make it without any bondo and the strakes would be one piece with the hull also.
The experienced modeller may prefer to fit a 3-channel RC system so that the reversing flap on the jet unit can be controlled to provide reverse running. If you reside in an EU member state besides UK, import VAT on this purchase is not recoverable.
I'm going for sprint boat looks, but I think I got a little angle on the V, looks good overall I think.


Need to make a hitch, jack for the front, and some maker posts for when trailer is under water, but it's probably too high to actually launch depending on steep the waterline is.
The deeper vee on it doesn't take too much from the looks, but it makes it really handle the waves nice. Tomorrow I will make a temp frame that will only be there to hold the parts in place while they cure together then I will bond all my parts together with fiberglass. I cut 4 pieces of .020 aluminum then JB Welded them to an aluminum tube hub, which I then JB Welded to a shaft. On the back of nozzle I rolled another cone from .020 aluminum, used 2 small screws as hinges which are JB Welded to the turn nozzle, along with an arm that will be attached to the steering linkage. It's messy looking as I had to use a stick to get fiberglass in that tiny area(my fingers wouldn't fit). I didn't tape the hatch this time and the big waves were coming over the top when i slowed down so it slowly filled with water and slowed the boat down. The shaft is waay to long though, I may have to either cut it down, or find really long screws and spacers for the motor mount. Still need to attach steering servo, mount nozzle, ESC, and split a 8.4V stick pack to straddle the jet. Once finished the inside of the housing and impeller will be sealed with fiberglass resin to waterproof.
I will make a fiberglass grate, nozzle, stator, and a duct to fit over it that will be used for steering. More powerful brushless motor with a considerably larger jet., and probably when grafting deck to hull I would cut down hull more for lower profile. Right now from starting with 2 plies, grafting them together, smoothing with bondo, adding strakes it's made the hull the heaviest part of the boat.
