Length 550mm... Width 180mm ... Gross Weight 1.8kgIt is made from heavy Plastic...

It has been built rather roughly...All the parts except the Radio Box for inside are there...

Hi
 I have the boat as shown below.
water-cooled 540 brushed motor.
but noisy due to the oldham's coupling! {:-{ :((


Larger version of Jupiter F-99 is much ,much better as silent ,fast,dynamic,etc...

This boat ,if my memory is correct,was put into market over 40 years ago and I actually
purchased my first Jupiter P550 at 1980 when was the time just after the sale from the Chikyudoh,in Japanese 地球堂。
The price was around 15000 yen,USD144.
The second Jupiter of my own is still in service as a recovery boat for other larger boats.
But she was modified for  water-cooled using coiled pipes as the 540 motor soon gets hot in a several minutes
in my case. :(( {:-{
[size=78%]However, reborn water-cooled  Jupiter p550 is running without over heat of  the motor.[/size]
1;my first Jupiter P550
2;~my second P550 modified to water-cooled.
7;cooling water can be seen ..can you confirm it ?? %)
