    Question Flyboard GTX 4-Tec question

    Hi, I am new to the world of flyboarding, so please go easy on me. Has anybody had experience running a flyboard on a 2002 Seadoo GTX 4-Tec (155HP)? What kind of performance should I expect to get (180lbs)? Are there any accessories I should be thinking about getting with it? I have gotten conflicting info if 155HP is enough, so I would like some more input.
    Thanks in advance!

    It it will work if using ski for Flyboard only get a dual impeller you won’t go very high but to start you don’t need to make sure ski is well maintained change oil filters etc not regularly as it puts a different strain on engine if flying solo you will need a remote throttle and fit electric bilge pump or 2 as you won’t know it’s sinking till too late

    as you progress the 155 will dual prop and more power but to start you should be fine the Yamaha 1800 is a good mid ground and if your lucky the 230/260 4tec are cheap and can last long enough looked after

    in my opinion, the ski won't last long, it's already 17 years old and the flyboard makes it run at 110% ALL the time and on top of that it's underpowered to boot.

    disclaimer-I have not run a flyboard

    Ok. So the dual impeller is definitely necessary? With it how high should I expect? Would it help to shorten the hose from 70ft to 55 or 60?
    Just out of curiosity, how are people flyboarding with 90hp sparks?

    it appears they have a model that supports the 90HP engine!

    live and learn



    that looks like it's doable if you aren't too ambitious on height and maneuvers

    still it's running the spark absolutely flat out

    I'd be inclined to find the worst cosmetic 4-tec I could and have a relatively fresh motor in it for such shennigans
