Sweet! Any video of the jet boat? I've never seen a non prop large scale before. Are there companies making them?

Hi there.
it is very hard to find jet drive stuff.
I run a swashdrive jet unit but they are no longer in production the next best would be MHZ or Graupner

http://www.cornwallmodelboats.co.uk/...upner_jet.html

sorry bout the no sound thoug.my digital camera isnt that flash.
there are plenty of other vids on youtube

Looks superb Steve, but what does it SOUND like?
I love watching those (FULL SIZE) boats on Sky when I'm back in the country.
