Not yet, still putting the final touches to it before I am ready for testing under power on water, and also decide exactly where I can test it!

You can be sure as soon as I do they will be on here

Have you thought about fitting FPV to your boats ? That’d be amazing, onboard views as it’s happening.

I am guessing you also have some pretty steep pitched props fitted too..
I just got some very small FPV cameras, but won't have time to fit them onto/into the boat for the next event. But later I will look into this. Right now I'm preparing 2 FPV systems, one on each side of the course to have a look at the perfect, centered line. I will have 2 monitors on the driver stand. The idea is to align the boat quicker, so I can get on full trottle earlier, so I will have more space to accelerate. Plus hopefully stay on the perfect line better than before.

So far I'm running 3 blade props with 2.0 pitch ratio, 44mm diameter. I designed them myself and I had them casted in 17-4 PH. For this year I will have them in 2.0, 2.1, 2.2 and 2.4 pitch ratio. I'm still working on them. I will post some pics once I'm done.

I wouldn't mind seeing an armada of K7 scale models at the next training (or whatever it will be called).

Hi There,

I can supply K7 Plans, as drawn-up for Ken Norris by Richard Corrigan. Ken gave me permission to scan them and reproduce them on CD.

Cost in the U.K. is £5.50 plus £1 P&P, and can be posted off by return mail.

Kindest regards, Fred
I'm new to the forum. I am smitten with K7 since finding out (exceedingly belatedly!) of the recovery (what do you mean 17 years ago?!?!?), restoration and running of this marvelous piece of History.

Is this set of plans on CD still available? I would love to purchase a set! I'm in the US so I would guess shipping would be a bit more at the very least.

Thank you!

Tim

Hi Tim,
Yes, they are still available. I will check on P & P and get back to you. Meantime I'll email some details to you if you let me have your details.

I'll ask for PM privileges as I'm a noob and can't do that as yet and I'd rather not post my email on the board. If possible, you could PM me and that may allow me to respond directly.

Thanks,

Tim
