RC Submarines
 
Robbe SeaWolf and Moebius Seaview
The new Sub-Driver for the Seaview is the lexan tube in comparison to the insides of the first large sub I have ever made, its 36", vs 40" for the Seaview. This is with a airplane battery setup, which is too light and not the right battery, but I am waiting on the proper one.

Its a V2 SeaWolf version with front dive planes on a microservo.
Need to get a ADF (auto pitch control) for the rear planes.
Thats on order. But I am going to giver her a shake down cruise without one tomorrow. Should be 15c and the water should be about 38F. Its cold water but the ice is gone....time to get er done.

Well I got two runs with no water leaks.
Its a dream come true. It handles very well.
I love it. It needs more ballast and I am going to put in my new 6v sealed lead acid battery, that will give me another two pounds dead center. Should be perfect. Cheers

Well I have the modifications done. I got the 6v in and the wiring is tighter, with the rx now under the tray up in front of the servos instead of back by the motor on top of the tray.

So the new set up, from back to front, motor, 6v battery, servos, rx, bec.

Top side of the tray.
Clean and tight.

They say that the sealed lead acid batteries are good for a hour. That is going to be fun.

I took some grey primer to the Seaview sub today, looks nice! Just did the white on the keel and waiting for it to dry. Its done on the outside and 99% done inside. Its going to be a childhood dream to run this baby. 40" of perfection. The conversion is by the guy who did Red October.
