    This is the First test print of thunder Tiger Neptune aka Seawolf rudder. So you can use the larger seawolf prop

    You could print a new steerable nozzle with a smaller rudder fixed to that. That would really make it turn well.

      Here a update on the file. I added the linkage arm to the rudder. I am basically copying the Thunder tiger Seawolf rudder and ring.and translate it into 3d model with the correct measurements. Then print it in ASA

        How about a Kort nozzle like on Russia's Priz Rescue Submersible?

          The main reason I am designing the parts is. I love my Thunder Tiger Neptune. However I don't like the small rudder and the tiny 37mm prop. When I first made this upgrade to my neptune, people asked where did I get the parts. I told them and they all bought all the seawolf rudders and ring parts and 62mm props. So getting a new larger prop is no problem, but the main rudder and ring parts are just gone everywhere, So I decided to just design the Seawolf parts I needed myself.

            Ok Close to getting done, just need to round off some corners if I want to. The two screws and the shaft bushing just swap over from the reg small Neptune rudder. Oh yea, need to sand and then paint. In the picture, I am comparing the original part which can not be bought any more, with the ASA 3D printed part.
