        Dem of the U-2326 RC model
        Length:
        34.7 m (113 ft 10 in) = 39”


        Beam: 3 m (9 ft 10 in) = 3.43”

        Draft: 3.67 m (12 ft 0 in) = 4.11”

        And a question, I got the type-23 fitting kit with my Bronco kit, but am not sure where all the parts go. I have Googled the kit number but no luck
        Anyone have any ideal where I can get more documentation?
        Thanks
        Bill

          Yeah... …

          …... from me!

          First, check this out: https://forum.sub-driver.com/forum/g...5th-scale/page

          If, after careful review of this assembly-thread and you're still lost, hit me with you specific component location and attachment questions. I'll guide you along.

          But first: RTFI

              LOL. I'll drag you screaming and kicking through the process, Bill.

                That's a fine system, Bill. Put the stern planes on channel-2, rudder on ch-1, the motor on ch-3, the ballast system on ch-5, and the bow planes on ch-6. Channels 5 and 6 are three-position only switches, but that's OK as the bow planes and ballast system work just fine as bang-bang items. Channel-4 is unused.

                    I'm dealing with an old-fart. Good. You've been around the block a few times. Let's get this toy assembled and in the water, pal.

                      Yep that's my plan, work on the U-2326 doing the day type here when I get up in the am
                      And I am still learning this site. And I cant upload any photos today, let me go read the
                      RTFI for up loading
                      But I did get the rudder, and the propeller shaft stern-tube assembly installed and started printing my stand

                              Virginia Beach, VA, Bill. We used to have a great site to operate here -- Mount Trashmore lake -- but the city shut us down about fifteen-years ago shortly after a drunk, south-of-the-border illegal drowned there, and his illegal survivors sued the City for a ****-load of money.

                              Just another reason for the Wall! https://pilotonline.com/news/article...9e3de3afb.html

                              Today we use the JCC pool.

                              We do go to the Newport News City Park for the annual Fall Festival to show-off and operate the models -- and that's right next to Fort Useless.
