      I had to make a bracket to house the servo's for the launchtubes, took some stock aluminum plate and bended the right shape, those white strips of evergreen will be used to fasten the servo's.

      Took some broken servo's as a dummy to see at which position they had to be placed.

      Bended the rods for controlling the launchtubes, it's a tight fitt around the control switches but enough room is left for moving them.

      All wires in the rearpart of the SD are in, all connectors soldered and documented which is which.

      Battery pack and levelkeeper are placed inside, made a small charging plug so i don't have to take the battery pack out during charging.

      From left to right, levelkeeper, battery pack and the charging plug.

      For now i have to wait when i have the servo's, when arrived i can start building up the rear bulkhead and the front bulkhead and start testing my contraption.

        All cables are tied together with small T raps, i like to keep things tidy, that ESC i ordered some time ago as a test, it can handle up to 10A, BEC 1A, the horns of the servo's are not yet fastened, this will be done when i know the exact position with all channels in neutral.

        I did mentioned about linking up the SAS float at the front , don't want to peel the tube off each time, so i've designed a watertight airplug which i have to make on the lathe.

        This is not needed for the rearpart, i only have to adjust the length of the tubes.

        Before i can start testing the SD i have to take out the SL8 receiver from the 212, don't know why, but my contraption with the old receiver and shadow programmer is dead, in a way it's better, the receiver was allready a bit of a risk.

        • Interesting times are starting here in the Netherlands, today they announced a partial shutdown of the country, She Who Will Be Obeyed was ordered last week to work from home by laptop, we are still well, and hope to stay that way by limiting our social contacts.
          It's a big mess in the Southern part of our country, they expect a second wave to hit this week, which can turn out nasty, i'll keep you guys informed.

                  That's correct, there were still Snickers!

                  Stay safe Manfred.
                  If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.

                        Yeah. I don't get the rush-on-****-paper thing. This is not digestive, its pulmonary. Idiots!

                        • Thanks for all your comments guys, it made me and SWMBO laugh, which is a good thing, the bad thing is, people are dying here like flies, each time there are more sick people added to the list, they gave us more restrictions, i must say not that heavy as with Bart, the future will learn if our measures will be effective.

                          So, that was the serious part, the bright side is, i've corrected some things at the SD.

                          The SD is now finished and tested, had to replace the receiver and the levelkeeper, added the magnetconnectors and finished up the connections to the rearpart of the sub.

                          Locked down the diveplanes and the rudders for the next step, cutting the rods the right length.

                          After cutting the rods up it revealed that it did not work as intended, so back to the drawingboard, my second attempt made me use bowdencables, this works like a charm.

                          Next step will be. starting up the lathe for my schnorkelconnector, and modify my construction for holding down the resquebouy.
