Hello !

When I received the drawing plans from Abfil (a french member of that forum too), he proposes to use 2 Graupner Speed 600 / 7,2V.
If somebody suggest a different motorization to me .......

Chris....I have no knowledge of model jet boat engine set up  :D
1. I see you have access to each half of the coupling to loosen or remove the locking screws......but can you remove the two M4? hex nuts [@ 3.00 & 9.00 o'clock] between the motor & the bell housing & disengage the motor for  :o  maintenance?.........
2. Are each of the centre rods that lift the water exhaust flap...connected so both flaps open together?............or is this independent for steerage?........Derek
