Bow Plane / Stern Plane Depth Control - APC/ADC/nothing

R/C Submarine modelers

Anyone have any opinion on setting up and using bow planes as your main depth control.

I see the options as:

nothing on bow .... APC on stern

reversed APC on bow ... nothing on stern

ADC on bow ... APC on stern

I find it harder to have a small angle of decent with bow planes as oppossed to stern planes alone.

Thoughts ....

On my 32nd P type XXIII I have my stern planes hooked up to the APC level keeper and diving is controlled by forward planes only. Works very well!

Tim,

That is the current set up on my Seawolf, thought I would try the APC on the bow planes to see if it handles differently. It's pretty easy to make the change. As I am not used to using bow planes on my other boats thought I would ping folks on what they find works best. Thanks for the input.

Cheers
