84mm
I guess they need to update the website.
I assume your nozzles are 100/90?

I take it the outer diameter is 100mm front and 90mm rear or are these dimensions slightly more than stated,
Just going by the fact your prop is 84mm and not 80mm as it mentions.
Looks to be a solid product.

How do you control a schottle / pod drive on a model? It's one thing ive always been curious about


At work when manoeuvring it's done with these leavers, - haven't seen anything like it for a RC before


Do most not use the schottle / pod in 360? these are our controls for 3 20MW pods

I am steering towards 360 (pun intended)  {-)
I want to keep it simple (without spending a mint) and control is not about speed but accuracy IMHO


I will use two rotary knobs to control and indicate the position of each kort and port starboard throttles split on left right friction sticks


Only testing in the water will determine what I might change.   AND lots of practice.


From a lot of watching it seems LESS is more, see what momentum does before over reacting.


EDIT
I guess the most important thing is the direction of the thrust, no point applying any amount in the wrong direction. {-)


I dare say in time with OPENTX I can have multiple settings and flick a switch for basic sailing controls with no tow OR simply put tank steering OFF

Thatís interesting Ray but I would say from experience that throwing a boat around sideways and spinning in open water is a far cry from the control required on a tow with obstacles everywhere
They make it look easy but Iíd like to see them apply it to more than showing off  %%
