    Snorkel head valve. The squat cylinder on top represents the Naxos radar detector.

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

    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!

    Surface run good, still sorting cylinder issues for submerged trim.

    OK! She did well surfaced, turn was successful! That was my biggest concern if she would turn in my 14' wide pool. The larger rudder worked, no extension needed. The submerged trim needs more foam above the waterline. Video link below:

    Surface Trim is good, will adjust foam vertically to dial submerged trim.

    Initial submerged trim good results, she is stable and level, next step will be adding floatation foam. 7" ballast tank seems perfect, thanks Jason & Bob.

    Added a magnetic switch between the battery and Remote Control so Remote Control will not drain the battery

    Cylinder is pressure proof and operational as are the linkages. My cat grabbed the upper hull and the navigation lights wires and separated the sail...... also, I drilled a hole in the bow end cap and miscalculated its position so the end cap warped when tightened down so reaching out to Bob about getting a new end cap. I repurposed old end cap which works perfect, will need to add a servo for bow dive planes. Next I will now start the trimming process.
