Default Video of my Akula

Finally got my best girl to help me with a video of the Akula.(Hard to drive a sub and use a camcorder at the same time,) It is a dynamic diver but seems to work fairly well.

The COG seems to be far in the back of the sub. Is it scratch built or a kit? Dimensions?

It's a Dumas kit about 88cm/35"long. When stopped it sits level, and when I want to run hard on the surface I move the rear planes to drop the rear and raise the bow, for slow running on the surface, just a little "down" on the rear, and then just a little "up" on the rear and down it goes. Once under it picks up speed and then all you have to do is keep it level, turn, dodge ducks and other surface targets. Great way to spend the afternoon.
