How does the Kilo behave without an angle keeper?

Touche.

Well Bigdave doesn't drive his type 23 without a leveler. Does anyone have a video of his 23 operating submerged. Those on youtube don't show enough detail.

The simple answer is, you can generally get by without a leveller on most submarines if you keep the speed down. Once you start going above a very slow walking place, dynamic effects really start to take hold, and it becomes very difficult to keep the boat level, that's when you want a helping hand in the form of pitch controller/leveller.

I have been out of the loop for so long with my life shaping events the last year that I was totally unaware of this kit. Can they still be had?
Also would like to say you did an excellent job on bringing this boat to life.
