    Been meaning to post some jet boat shots for a while but after checkin out 4mods jet boat post I thought I'd stop bein lazy. LOL.
    The silver one is my buddy's. The orange one is mine.The red one is my kids. They are all NQD brushless modded, with stock jet drives. I'm about to build another with a bigger jet drive, parts are on the way.:seriousbusiness:

    The air filter is a milk bottle lid painted - easy. The injection stacks are made from Macdonnalds straws - their foods crap but the straws are great! LOL

    How fast? I uploaded a video just after these pics so that'll give you an idea. I run a little 370 size 3750Kv, 35A ESC on 3cell with the stock jet drive. But everyone seems to do something different.

    Very nice. I like your idea using the top of a milk bottle lid and the McDonalds straws. This is why i like this RC hobby. You can use anything to make your RC look awesome. Great job and great idea.

    Thanks. I have to give the credit to my buddy Simon for taking these sweet shots! I'm hoping to do more filming soon.
    Don't hesitate to buy one. They're a heap of fun. Relatively inexpensive too.

    Three different NQD jet boats actually. Different paint anyway. We are all running the same brushless combo. You must not have read my description above the pics because you were in awe of these cool shots? LOL.

    Cool man. Get into it. They're a bunch of fun! Recently I found a guy selling them on Ebay fully modded and ready to run including 2.4gh radio, LiPo and charger. It's a good set up and his Youtube videos back it up.
