Due to clutch problems the plane unfortunately never raced in the Schneider Cup. Giovanni Pegna claimed the plane could reach a top speed of 700km/h (434 mph).

 As the plane gained speed during takeoff, the hydrofoils lifted plane’s fuselage (hull?) and its airscrew out of the water. A clutch was then engaged transferring motive power from the marine propeller to the airscrew.

A 3D model of the Piaggio Pegna P.C.7. The seaplane was designed by Giovanni Pegna for the 1929 Schneider Trophy Race. In a bid to reduce aerodynamic drag the plane featured hydrofoils instead of the usual floats for taking off from the water. Clicking on the image takes you to the Wikipedia entry.
