Abstract: We have studied the connection between black hole masses and jet parameters (Doppler and Lorentz factors and viewing angle) in a sample of radio-bright flat spectrum radio quasars. Our preliminary results show a negative correlation between the black hole mass and the viewing angle, which could indicate a wind-like component in the broad line region of these sources. In contrast to previous findings, we do not find strong correlation between the Doppler boosting factors or Lorentz factors and the black hole masses.
