With a predominance of either windy, cold, or rainy weather have not had much of a chance to test out the Hexacopter. With a window of opportunity I made atewrecks
I bought the 1973 V7 sport from Farco Scooters And Cycles in 1973 in Watertown Massachusetts. In addition to Moto Guzzi they sold Ducati, Lavarda and severaltewrecks

The model uses bilge pumps for propulsion and directional movement. When I decided to build an RC Nautilus I discovered the typical components used to make a model submarine were very complicated and prone to electrical and physical failure. The Jet Nautilus is the essence of simplicity in design and operation, however it has taken awhile to develop and perfect the system to its current version. There are no moving parts (except for the pumps themselves), no servos, no dive plains, no movable rudder, no prop (to get tangled in weeds), no air pumps or bladder, the sub is a dynamic diver.
YouTube videos document the development over time and while there may be little visual distinction between the versions much has changed internally and is described here. While the hull used to develop the system was the Nautilus it is not limited to this hull design. Other subs/hulls could be used although I have not ventured from the hull discussed here at this point. A 4ft hull is about the minimum size to fit all the pumps and electrics.
