Good info Jim, I am confident that the ducted fans will work off water, my BD-5 may have just been a bad choice to try to convert over to sea plane as I am still tweaking, makes a cool looking boat though!

Hey, Joe! Doin' fine. Here in Glorious Florida where the wind is always at 5 mph straight down the pond, and the temperature is always 82 degrees.

I have GOT to get a pic of Warren's jet-thing. It's so clean there is no air-rushing noise when it goes by-just the hair-dryer-on-expresso noise of an angry ducted fan.

Yea all my seaplane water here is frozen .lol I can retire already but my YOUNG girlfriend has 5 more years to work before we can move somewhere warm. She is 20 years younger than me so having to wait a little longer to move to a warner spot was Well worth it to me. X X X lmao. The jets on the water are new to us older flyers but very fun to watch. Glad to hear you are eating up that FL sunshine Jim. Another water flying buddy of mine (Merlyn Graves )has landing in FL a couple years ago ,great builder and flyer. joe

This is the DF jet my flying buddy Warren built after he exceeded self-disassembly velocity with the fan on a Polaris. For all the extreme wonderfulness of a Polaris, they WILL flutter. This one is all balsa, the wing is airfoiled. It is VERY fast (AND slow) and so clean there is not a whoosh when it goes by. You can sing his praises at bigg5007@verizon.net
