Thanks for the good words..

May consider to modify the shape of the fore dive panes, should be more regtanglar shape...

meanwhile, looking at the Delta sub from the same manufacturer...

I have the Delta couple years ago
but.....it's too narrow to convert it to RC
as the days go by ....she is still in the box
Delta class always my dream submarine....
anyway some day I will build it from scratch

best regards

Cmpang,

Congratulations on another great project. Love the first photo with the Typhoon stalking a US carrier.

Can you post photos showing the insides? Very much interested seeing how you managed to squeeze everything inside a small hull.

Hi redboat and profesorul, yes I will take some internal pictures later today.

There is a short story behind the Typhoon. Some of my friends formed a small group playing specifically playing 1/350 R/C converted plastic warships. After converting my first CV8 Hornet, I was thinking of something a bit different and was caught by the Typhoon. Due to its small size, my first plan was only built it as a surface ship. Upon water trial, to my surprise, the waterproofing work was so effective that basically the whole internal hull structure was indeed running below water level without a drop of water creeping in. So I say to myselves, why not make it a dynamic diver by just putting in a pair of for dive panes? And that is what you see it now... and you might be surprised by how simple and effective the waterproofing works...

so.. more photos later..

Hi Xin,

With Delta's mere hull width of 28mm and a prop spacing of only 16mm, to me the only way to drive the twin prop is building a tiny one to two gear box and drive it with a small 130 motor. The same motor used in the Typhoon which proved to be adequate

The second issue would be setting up the control linkage to the rudder. Stern dive pane would be too difficult to implement and I would go with the fore panes only, the way that I did in the Typhoon.

Still thinking of it... not decided on it yet...

Good old K.I.S.S. principle. No need to over engineer it.
Totally sufficient for your boating pond which from the videos looks like it's around a meter or less in depth.
BTW, Did you use the stock propellers?

nop.. I used a pair of brass 14mm 3 blades at the moment.. will ask my friend to make a 5 blades pair when he has time... 7 blade scales skew profile would be asking too much for such a small sub tought...

Since the Delta has sail mounted dive planes you'll need to fabricate bow planes out of clear plastic to help it dive.

Or you could build it the way they converted a 1/350 DML Ohio class SSBN.

Check out also the Typhoon.

thanks for the excellent link redboat219...

Must agree that using a bow truster in vertical gives the pitch control is a very clever idea...

there is an observation while watching the video.. it seems that the Ohio was sitting way way below water level (all the hull) even when surfaced.. not sure if it is only an incident while taking the video or it is the way it operates..

Cmpang,
In the Ohio pitch control was through the stern planes, the thruster is for steering. It uses a micro piston tank similar to the one in the 1/350 Oscar SSGN. Click on "Regelzelle" in the Oscar thread to see the piston tank.

Just realized that the Oscar and Trafalgar are 1/700 scale!
