T5Evo: Build part 3

Getting much much closer to the finish now. The next major milestone passed was the tanks. Thanks to Ian's boats for a custom 3 tank system that can hold a whopping 5.2litres! Hopefully i'll never need that much, but the space is there just in case! Once the tanks were mounted I could fit the back bulkhead and get the radio tray positioned and fixed in.

Carbon KEPS update

Just a few more pictures from my first hydro build, and a new boat gets a shiney new engine!

Team KEPS testing videos

As all three of us are going to be heading to the FSRworld World Championships in Dessau in the 3.5cc H, we thought it would be a good idea to get our fleet of KEPS T2 riggers up to speed. Here are a few of the videos we managed to take.

The good new was that by the end of the day all of us had improved performance to what you can see, although Phill did have a bit more work to do at the end of the day

Leon and Martin having some fun!
 
 
Now the challenge will be to see if we can all make the finals.

Winner!

So it was the first race of the season today in Peterborough. The sun was shining and there was a great turnout of people, some with new boats and others with not so new.

Leons new 3.5cc managed to show some pace in the end and I managed to carry on the habbit from last year in the 7.5cc.

It was a shame Phill couldn't have joined in the fun with his new 15cc boat, but there's plenty of time for that.

T5Evo: Build part 2


Here's part 2 of the build. After getting the shaft, rudder and engine posts lined up, it was time to get them all tacked in and expoxyed into place. With those in it was time to shape and place the waterscoops and throttle/mixture rods. And i'm sure i'm not the only person who hates getting the bulkheads fitted!

New T5Evo : The secret's out!

There's a new 15cc hull on the block, the Prestwich Model Boats T5Evo. And i'm lucky enough to have one of the first out of the mould.

My straight-drive T6 has been good to me (as was my T4 and my original Tornado), so i've decided to try a Holger gearbox in the new stepped T5Evo. And what better place to building a FSR-V boat than the kitchen table! It's been an interesting place to cut/drill/dremel and i'm sure the neighbours are loving the noise...

I'm a couple of months into the building process now and aiming to get it finished in the next few weeks. Testing reports from Mr Marles have his clocked at over 90kph and i'm keen to see what mine can do.

So here's the first part of the build and stay tuned for the next update.
