Some more research….looks like we may be seeing an IOS7/Safari and YouTube problem that has occurred when YouTube recently switch to using html5 be default.

Quite a few IOS7 users are complaining about similar problems, plus crappy video playing.

Steve,

Those Kingston valves look really good. Like you said they really add a nice visual touch to the sub. Kudos to Bob Dimmack for providing such a great detail.

Well she's really starting to look like something. Waiting at home as we speak for Bob's OTW cylinder to arrive. We're getting serious now. Plus the prop Teak wood and a few other things are in the shipment to finish her off. Another week and we will be in the test tank I plan to build next week.

More pictures until the video uploads. Almost every part on the boat now. WTC and prop came today. Another 3-4 days and she will be done and ready to test.

The gadget you thought was a failsafe is a leveller/pitch controller. You can set them up using a torch (remote control).

The gadget you thought was a gyro, is actually the ESC, and a very good one. Bob should be able to fix you up with instruction PDF's if you contact him.

For the English language "impaired", i.e. Americans :) , torch = flashlight.

I have one of Bob's new pitch controllers and it works great!

Lol, yes don't attack your WTC with a blowlamp, the result may be amusing for spectators, but is unlikely to please the owner.

I have the Micro Gyro pitch controller and ESC and they both work great.
So, NaNa Jeff. Lol. BD. :mrgreen:

I, for one, am really enjoying these videos but I'm waiting to see how Steve handles the linkages to the rear dive planes and rudder in that really narrow stern section.
