Forums are back!

Good day, everyone!


As you are probably aware, the forums are (finally!) back up and running.

It was a long and frustrating journey due to how the old forum database was structured, which resulted in an absolutely massive file that was exceptionally difficult to migrate to the new hosting provider. In the end, we got it figured out thanks to the relentless work of a friend who knows more about this than I will ever conceive.

Some things to note:

1.) New address! No more sub-driver.com! The forums are now permanently hosted at https://forum.rc-sub.com. Change you bookmarks! Tell everyone else to change them, too!
2.) Old bookmarks won't work! Due to the SSL settings on the old domain, your old bookmarks will get you an error message if you try to visit forum.sub-driver.com. I'm working on setting up a new security certificate for that site so that it will redirect properly, but until then, you get the error.
3) Help me by looking around for broken stuff. If there are wonky threads, let me know and I'll see what I can do about cleaning them up. That said, bear in mind that we'll do the best we can from our end, but we need to evaluate each issue in terms of importance and may have to de-select repairs if they end up too time-consuming. (that's what you get for using a free site! ;))

Thank for your patience, everyone! I really appreciate it.

BUILD ON!

    • I know this is an old thread, but the documentation, pictures, and video associated are awesome! I did have a question for you. Are the sail planes on your Seaview functional? I was wondering because I am doing a refit on mine and saw that you were able to get a 3 1/2 inch subdriver into the Teskey Seaview. If your sailplanes are functional, how did you get that size subdriver into that Seaview? If the sailplanes are functional on this boat, could you share some pics of how you did the linkages with the Merriman Sail. I have the exact same one. Thanks in advance.

        I strongly recommend making the sail planes functional. Here's some video that makes my point:

        • Those are great videos David! I agree with you wholeheartedly. I have mine functional in the Teskey Seaview. I am doing a refit of the sub with new technology that has been created since I first built this sub years ago. I bought the sail kit from you along with the DE miniatures mod 2 WTC 3. I started a thread in the newbies section on the refit of the Seaview since I had been out of it for quite a while. I was curious how he managed to get the sailplanes functional using a 3.5 inch subdriver. That area has to be reallly really tight up towards the sail. I am going to be using the new klikons for connections. The only easy way that I can see is to make the linkage for the sailplanes coming out of the WTC is to make a U and go back straight in line with the klikons attaching to the Clevis on the sailplanes.

            That's right: magnetic couplers up high in the thin sail -- I submit some pictures of the magnetic coupling of the 1/96 BLUEBACK to illustrate how I do it.

            And that 'U' to get the sail-plane pushrod to point forward. I use a dumb-bell shaped item to translate the after facing pushrod, to a forward facing one.

            And some eye-candy of the Teskey SEAVIEW in a pool being harassed by a UN submarine (just before it imploded at the crushing depth of three-feet).
