A quick update on this funny thing
The first steering set-up was crappy and not that responsive so I replaced it with steel roods and Graupner Ball joints and now the response is great  :-))
Did also fit some brass rods to protect the impeller from damaged.
And today I ordered the upgraded impellers from Protean Design both for this one and for my BB Thor Coast Guard.
I'll do a speed test when i have done the upgrade.
