update
I found the mod out
it basically involves drilling a pin through the hex bolt thats used to join the 2 halves of the sub together to prevent it from seperating

the other mod was replacing the plastic Y guard for the rudders with one cut from brass

my front dive planes are going to be controlled from a servo inside the WTC that will use the bellows from the on/off switch to put the linkage outside the hull i will run a large "golden rod " shaft through the top of the hull to the front dive planes this way i only have 3 connections and ill put the switch inside the hull and turn the boat on before i connect it

now to find a plance to sail it once the 3 feet of ice melts

PS what are good motors to replace the stock ones with I have read they kill Batteries very fast

I built my u47 from the start with a ballast tank, and I used graupner 400 size motors with 4:1 planetary gearboxes.
