This is the most recent update on the pump design.

This is a simple model of the motor that will power the centrifugal pump.

Housing for the motor, with some openings for cooling.

This little disk separates the motor from the impeller which will be filled with water when the pump activates and a vacuum is formed.

The outer most housing for the pump. The two openings will hold standard pneumatic fittings that will hold some tubing to move water through the pump. This water is the jet that will propel the craft.

These model will be available as soon as they are finalized and the physical models are tested.
