M-Jet Sprint - 3D Printable RC Jetsprint Boat Model 3D print model
Vacation update: From 16.7. to 31.7. 2021 I am on a vacation and will not respond to any comments or product support. I will answer everything afterwards. Thanks for understanding.
Note: This is not a physical product. After purchase, you can download computer files which you can use to manufacture your own parts on a 3D printer.
Fully functional and complete RC boat model. You get 18 STL files for 18 parts of the boat, designed to be FDM 3D printed, 16 of them with no supports. You can 3D print it and assemble it with help of the manual, link below. You need to buy all electronics, screws and other necessary parts yourself - part list is in the manual, too.
The f3d files, STEP files or any similar CAD format is not included. I cannot share it for various reasons.

M-Jet Sprint overview
1/10 scale, 39cm hull length. My boat weights 1200g, the weight depends on the electronics you choose.
Two stage jet pump, meaning it has two impellers. 27mm diameter. The pump is integrated into the hull body. It achieves very consistent performance and has no issues with priming, like many single stage pumps do. My impeller mounting system does not use any glue or grub screws, therefore makes the maintenance very simple. All thrust is absorbed into a thrust bearing, there is no force on the motor shaft. It is based on my M-Jet 30 jet drive and shares the key features with it, read reviews here: https://www.cgtrader.com/3d-print-models/hobby-diy/other/m-jet-3d-printable-jet-drive-for-rc-boats
Integrated watercooling: Both inlet and outlet for your watercooling loop are integrated into the design.
Self righting works thanks to a flood chamber - a chamber that gets filled with water when the boat flips over. The side with the chamber gets heavier and flips your boat back. When driving forward again, all the water flows out.
Optional pilots and V8 engine are included in the STL files.
Integrated mounts for the motor, battery, ESC and receiver.
Motor choice: You can use up to 3660 size brushless motor. Read more in the manual.
Please note that this final version of the M-Jet Sprint does not contain the receiver drybox anymore, which was seen in my one of my previous youtube videos showing the development of this boat. After testing the drybox, I found out it would not work as I intended - water was getting inside anyway and it was taking too much space. Therefore I reworked and improved the main cover seal of the hull and removed the drybox completely. Now I recommend just using a plastic bag, which in combination with the new main seal works better overall.
Update 27.03.2021: The Motor choice section in the manual was edited after testing more motors with the boat.
Update 25.04.2021: A new folder Mods_for_M-Jet_Sprint was added to the files. It includes new modifications of the boat design with some ideas coming from the community, which suit different needs. Added mods: thicker hull mod, thicker cover mod, ride plate mod.
