Gotta get some dry pics of it now, it looks great underwater does it perform like stock? and what is the thing behind the rear fins?

That's the prop shroud and it keeps crap from hitting the prop..

the speed is alittle slower than my modded Dallas but the controls are better than the Dallas...

try these picture shots.

nice job!
1) on the shroud....did you make that? and if so, from what?
2)did you know the Chicago is a Los Angeles class attack sub? I can't remember if they both lack plane on the conning tower. I like the look though!

Thanks

Yes the Seawolf class has no planes on the sail, but so does the 688i class (Improved Los Angeles)

The Shroud was a bottle that I cut down from a perscription I had along time ago, however there are some issues I am finding out with this setup, the main thing is how much water
comes in from the front is limited by the way it's mounted. I am about to open the opening by 2mm and see if this helps out, over all I am very happy with it and my wife loves those
subs. The color and performance has been good for the sub, with the black color, she is easy to track from the shore and diving seems good, my Dallas seems to have the edge on her but hey I'm still playing with it!

does she list while running on the surface? gulfstream1 modded his dive planes to correct a list he was getting while running on the surface. Just wondered if the decrease in mass that high above the center of gravity helped....or if you even had this issue. Thanks for the postings! I am getting my Chicago (2nd generation) this weekend! Woohoo!

did you do all the gulfstream1 mods to your "seawolf" sub? Or just the propulsion?

I went inside and changed the wiring for the batteries so I can use the Nimhs and then added some foam,extended the prop out the back and then the shroud that covers the prop
and then tried it out, I think I can get more speed out of her but it's a matter of having the time right now. I just went back to work! :-)


Which means I can finish up my Uboat and my Nimicho I-19 sub for RC converstion.
