    Initial test run of the Bixpy jet motor for the kayak.

    I have been curious about these. Thanks for the report.

    That wireless controller is really cool! I was hoping the top speed would at least hit 5.5 or so, but I'm sure that maybe it's just more about battery run time over top speed. Have you gotten a chance to see total run time on the low and high speeds?

    I've only had a chance to get out and familiarize myself with the motor's basic operation. I'll have to check out how long it can go on the lower setting in the future. It's suppose to go around 6hrs or so on setting 2. On the higher speed it'll probably only go for maybe 1 1/2 to 2hrs.

    All the video's I've seen have been in calm water. Have you tried it in any strong winds & current as yet?

    I like the lack of visible mounting hardware that you find on the torqeedo. I'd like to see a head to head vs the torqeedo as far as speed, longevity and noise is concerned.

    I'm also interested in a head-to-head type of comparison, especially with 'real-world' conditions

    This is the only time I've gone out with it so far. I just got the motor about a week ago.
