    I finished up all the lighting and related wiring, and everything went well! Spent some time this evening getting things ready for the SD wiring for tomorrow!

    I am following Bob Martins video #4 which shows how this SD is wired up on the Nautilus that he built! So far things have been falling into place pretty close to his build videos! I honestly do not see how anyone could build this 1:77 scale Disney Nautilus without using his 1 through 5 build videos! Great job Bob!! Thank you!!

      Some of the electronics in the SD (ESC, and the pump) where defective! Long story short! The Nautilus will be a surface runner only! Ounce I get the new design worked out, I will post the results! As of now the 1:77 scale Disney Nautilus is done!

        Rob,


        What you're saying is pretty alarming. Every single one of these subdrivers are fully tested prior to being shipped out. If there is an issue, I'm sure we can get it to talk to through. No need to got a perfectly good cylinder if it will get the job done.

        You need to let me know when something like this happens so we can hook you up...

          Bob! Thank you for responding! Please! I am in NO WAY blaming Nautilus Drydocks for these issues! I could have caused the wires to break off when I took the electronics out of the cylinder! As for the ESC, I may have crossed some wires in the process! It has been almost a year that everything has been boxed up before I started on it! I do not want any type of warranty recourse on this SD Bob!

          This Nautilus is a tough build at best! And these type of things can happen during the build! And at this point I think these issues may have been caused by me! Please everyone reading this right now, understand I am NOT blaming Nautilus Drydocks! Yes I am frustrated right now, but I will put this boat to water and be very happy with it! The lights look great, the running gear and rudder work great since I put in a new ESC (Viper 10) and wired it up! So put this to rest that Nautilus Drydocks shipped me a defective SD! They are a VERY reputable company!!

          I am very happy with how this boat turned out! It may not be up to it's full potential, but it will look great running around in my pool! Sorry I put my frustration out on the blog, and for giving the impression that Nautilus Drydocks was at fault! Moving on! Thanks to all that have helped me on this blog and forum for the past year plus!

          Thank you!

          Rob

            Thanks for the clarification, Rob. Had us worried for a bit there. On the topic of the cylinder, though... For heaven's sake, let's get that boat diving! You have our full support to work through the challenges of the tilting prop linkage, and the cylinder is basically set up and ready to rock as she came. It's a half-step, a hop and a jump to go from surface target to fully operational agent of destruction of the "hated nation". We're standing by to help make that happen for you.

              And what ****ing good is a gimbaled propeller if you're stuck on the surface?

              Send me that POS SD and I'll fix it for you.

                I want to thank you David and Bob for your kind and generous offerings!

                A-side from being the most frustrating, challenging, failure redden, and sometimes successful wonderful hobby, it's the people like both of you that make it what it is! At this point I need to back away from it a while and recoup! Thank you again for how you always step up to help us all!

                You are both truly my friends, and for that I am grateful!
