  • Turning radius is decent and like David said it moves well! Is there a difference in turning radius between port and starboard?
    If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.


    • It is quick. That video is the second one that I made whilst sorting out the bow planes - hence the speed. This is the first, and slighly more sedate version.


      • I'm not sure if its asymetrical or not Tom. It turns a lot tighter than shown on the video. I'm going easy on the rudder mechanism until I get it dialed in completely. That dam is bloody deep and its still quite cold so I'm avoiding a swim right now. The dog however, has no such inhibitions.

          Speedy little thing, and damned good depth-control on display there. I've re-thunk the motor bulkhead for your ZULU SD, will get on that today -- sorry about the delay.

          No drama with the Zulu SD. Hope that you are feeing better.
