Looking good, Bob :-))  I notice the typical Amsterdam turning in reverse, mine does that too, although I thought that the Kort nozzle might stop it, or were you doing it deliberately?


That's a nice bit of water - where is it?

hi Peter


i was on full lock in rev
to just show how well it steers in rev  with the steering nozzle you can do figger 8 s  no worries
it does steer a bit better one way then the other even though the nozzel turns the same to port and starboard
it has got a tendency to prop walk in reverse if you pull up quick BUT SO do the real ones
very happy with it now on 7.4 v at 50% throttle  on 12v it was just crazey fast you could only use 20% throttle or the bow wave comes over the front

the water hole (small river turns into a big river in the wet the water is over the sugar cane railway bridge at times )  is called ROSS & LOCKE just south of Cairns were you turn off  to go up the GILLIES range to the the Tableland



cheers Bob
