    Fully trimmed for surface & submerged running with 2.4Ghz antenna scope above water. Yes, the "sonar" that seats on the two silver masts is missing... it broke off in transit to my Top Secret Testing Facility. After 4 years this is my first time actually driving an RC Submarine using Ballast, Bow Planes and Stern Planes!

      By “Sonar”, do you mean the head of the snorkel? Looks good on the water.

          Snorkel head valve. The squat cylinder on top represents the Naxos radar detector.
          Make it simple, make strong, make it work!
