Having just found this in the drawer bottom it has just occurred to me that I don't think I ever posted what the original 28mm jet drives were like before I got into discussion with my Amigo at Ocean Works ?


This was my original purchase which was a shock as nothing like what you might expect from a 28mm drive.
Their willingness to accommodate my requests was truly outstanding and it seems they have sold quite a number  :-))



Here you can see also the change of bucket outlet angle besides the vast increase in size
Actually firing straight back at the transom originally

Has anyone swapped out the supplied jet drives from a Speedline Shannon for a pair from OceanWorks'  ?

I have a the X9D Plus fully programmed for all the manoeuvres  listed in the Hamilton manual and can alter each control's output  by 0.1% "on the fly", it is not possible to get ideal solutions, or even consistent performance at just above tick over. The throughput randomly varies by about 20%, I suspect the waterseals on the shafts are the problem, but fitting new seals and repeatedly adjusting the gap between the housing and the coupling makes no useful difference.                 
 I have tried different Rx, Esc and motors etc to no avail, the only option left is to swap out the jet drives.   

If I buy a pair of OceanWorks jet drives will the existing couplings fit, or are the new type supplied now?

Solid couplings now Alan   Included m4 to m5
The issue with swapping the whole drive is that the water intake is much further forwards and the hull needs to be flat whilst the Speedline is true to reality and recessed right up to the transom.
It can be done with glass work yes

Thanks Andy
I expected to have to get the fibreglass out, so that's not a problem.
Now Speedline is no-more, someone will eventually have to swap them out and it may well be me.

I've thought about retro fitting the Ocean drives to my speedline. No seals in speedline drives, replace with propshaft.


Now I have a taranis x9e I may change the speedline over once I've done the MBD, expect in 2021.

Me too Dave my drives got Hubbled  :-))
Again as you I will finish the MBD before looking again at the other and my hull is not painted fully yet so less hardship
Also would remove all my controls and reinstall like my current build

Fitted an extra switch to the X9E. Fairly easy to setup in radio.


Wonder if we could have a dedicated thread on this transmitter to pass on information, deals, utube?

Why would it need an extra switch ? Mine has several unused.
Another thread would be better
Over to you  :-))

always find room for extra switches, lights, radar, multi sound system.

Hi, I keep viewing this post over and over because I see something else every time . I see that your trims are linked to your motors, I have mine linked to the buckets so when going forward they go down and in reverse they lift up out the way. Itíll be interesting to try both ways to see the outcome. Keep posting it keeps me questioning myself.

My trims are linked to buckets and throttle
There are videos demonstrating a few pages back

My drives arrived today. Excellent quality. Solid coupling. Aluminium face plate for motor fixing. Not sure what the ali fitting is for.
Ordered another set for my speedline shannon.

The alloy fitting was originally for through the hull and it accepts a bellows. Perhaps included for the trim tabs?
I didn't use it.
