Default RE: Trumpeter Kilo Submarine

Well, with ballast tank in place and all electronics to go, I tested the sub in the bathtub. The first 3 tests I ran resulted in almost catastrophic damage to the electronics (before the sub crashed down anyways) due to a leak at the bottom of the forward WTC. Speed was a little bit too slow, maybe it was the batteries or the prop. The fourth test will be planned somewhere this weekend. I have made a new WTC for the receiver and this time it is waterproof! Here some pictures of the sub now:
