    Nice! I saw something similar not too long ago only with the USS Enterprise. This guy appears to be dynamic, but the Big E almost seemed to have static diving system of sorts. Very cool either way.

      Yes dynamic-but he doesn't need much forward speed to go below-also with independent power and vectored thrust (no dive planes) the ship powers nose down and powers itself under water..go to that link and check out the inside..

            I can't quite tell-are those two brushless motors(3 wires)? and what radio is that-from the antenna length and underwater performance, I know its not 2.4..I don't recognize the markings.

              See the gray bullet shape things inside the engine nacelle of the fighter, motor pods from a cheap RC boat, most likely 130s or 280s.
