There are quite a few other K7 models out there, many large scale turbine powered too, would definitely be cool to get a bunch of them together!!

Re: Tales from The Cockpit

Ted in donalds book ‘ into the water barrier’ he said k7 pulled to one side when putting on the power due to the gyroscopic forces of the engine spinning, can you tell me if you experianced this your self? Ian lazenby
