    LOS ANGELES build logs

    HELLO ALL,

    Be ADVICE : Is gonna be a very long thread so PLEASE have patience !

    Earlier this week I took courage and I start working on these project .
    That is a LOS ANGELES submarine bought it from someone on the forum .
    - I started with rudders depth as required for the large volume of Sisyphus work ....

    - after many, many hours of sanding an file I managed to do what you can see in the pictures...
    HOW TO FIX :
    1) file until get same length?
    2) fill until get same length ?



    - then continued with bow rudders ....NO problems here ,

    - with tower is another story and I have some questions about the place to put axis for Bow Rudders ....( see pictures )


    - I do not know what those two parts are and which should be put it ( see pictures )


    and the last question from these series :
    1) what are those holes and witch should be drilled ( I think some of them should be don do the captive air !)





















    OK for now,

    THANK YOU

    MARIUS

    For the moment all I have is these :







    - any suggestion about Reliable Speed Controller ......Fail Safe devices and what else should be ?
    - the RC is FUTABA 6EXP - 6 channels (4 + 2 ) ,40MHz .
    I know is an very old model but that's gonna be do the small budget

    Cam On don't be shy !.

    HI ,

    To day I am very glad because I did some progress on the project.I know is NOT very much but when You don't have SPARE time at all and Your work shop is the kitchen and work bench is kitchen table - IF YOU GET THE PERMISSION from "MASTER CHEF" my WIFE !!! is A PROGRESS .

    Couple days a go I glued a piece of PVC sheet on both Dive Planes . I din't have to file them to shape .





    Yesterday and to day I did the Motor mount from a small piece of aluminum sheet .
    It was necessary to Drill , cut , tap , file .
    Doesn't look much but I keep the tools in to a small crowded closet , some of them on balcony , where is my lathe too !!! .
    When I tray to do something it need 30min to get the tool down and another 30min - 40min to clean the work place .
    I told You all these to see way is gonna be a very long thread plus the "dam found" always missing !.







    See You soon I HOPE .

    All the Best
    MARIUS

    HI there ,

    I did some progress to day . I made the propeller shaft house . I don't know if is going to be the final , that's hard to say now . Wheel shall see . Any way these cames out after a 3 - 4 hours of hard work . Way take so much , is because I was going in just 0,010mm too MUCH and the Ball Bearing wasn't going as is should be . You now what I mean . I HAVE MY LIMITS !!!. I don't have the skills and the technick to do that kind of work from the first time . On the 3rd TIME It was Good Anough to give hem a shot .
    Any tips/tricks/ would be great for those kind of operation in a very close future .
    ...A = Hight for the Ball Bearing ; B = hight for the Simmering . You can see way was a Little difficult to succeed from the first tray .

    HI ,

    Before I express my opinion I need to know on what project you working exactly ,
    Put some picture here on forum by opening a thread with the project an be shore there is gonna be a lots of people to advice You , Is BETTER if You get access to one or two other forums or at least read as guest everything You can about that sub You build .
    Any way the "RC SUB WORKSHOP " is one of the best in the field , I heard - I never bought from them ( too far from me and the taxes are huge )
    NO MATTER on what project You are working , Take Your time and do a good and deep research in order to have as much information You can , before actually start working or spend money on components .
    If is the first project of You and You choose GATO sub be aware is a VERY COMPLEX project with o LOTS of EXTERIOR DETAILS and not only . I think is one of the most complex project and requires a Lot of practice before , lots of knowledge in different areas , SO THINK TWICE BEFORE YOU START SPEND MONEY .

    Anyway IS ONLY MY HUMBLE OPINION , You DECIDE WHAT and HOW .

    BEST of LUCK

    MARIUS
