Flex Drive E Motor Kit

$799.00

Jackson Kayak SKU: 71691

Pedal, Paddle and Power options are all here now with the introduction of the Flex Drive E (FD-E)! Compatible only with Flex Drive-equipped boats from Jackson, including our Jackson fishing kayaks and Blue Sky boats, the Flex Drive E is an electric drive that interchanges with the pedal drive unit in seconds to offer users an alternative, effortless power source. Compact and weighing less than eight pounds, the FD-E stores within the boat’s hatch along with battery and cables making installation instant and with no drilling or motor brackets needed. The FD-e comes ready to work with 12 or 24V deep cycle or lithium battery.

The rugged FD-e motor is housed in an injection-molded case that is marine-ready and maintenance-free. Forward-reverse and speed are controlled by a single knob – even a novice can connect and operate Flex Drive E in minutes. With the flexibility to run under the power of a lithium or deep-cycle battery, the Flex Drive E greatly extends the on-water range for every user. Included in the kit:

  • (1) – Motor Unit
  • (2) – Killswitch Keys
  • (1) – Battery Cable
  • (2) – 3/8” Heat Shrink Insulated Ring Terminals
  • (2) – 1/4” Heat Shrink Insulated Ring Terminals
  • (1) – Manufacturer’s Statement of Origin
  • (1) – Specifications Stickers
  • (1) – Owner’s Manual (Digital Version)

Note: You will need to have our two-bladed 10 x 10 Pitch Pedal / 12V Prop installed for maximum efficiency with a 12V battery. The 10 x 10 prop is the optimal prop for pedaling your boat, as well. If you are running 24V, use our 9 x 5 Pitch / 24V Prop for optimal performance. The two-bladed 10 x 10 prop has been standard on our boats since 2019; if you have a three-bladed prop we highly recommend using the correct prop listed above. Battery not included.

    So, with the Flex drive pedal system installed on a Blue Sky 360 Tricat, it will be possible to switch the pedals out and install the Flex Drive E unit on one pedal station. Then when the battery dies, switch back to the pedal operation again?

    I have the original drive that came with my BlueSky. Will this work out of the box, or do I need to change anything with the coupling?
