This is the strangest R/C sub in the Alpha Quadrant!

USS VOYAGER

Another version

And here is a still of the sub in action. The plexiglass planes can barely be seen.
Planes

What an imagination!

that is just way to cool..... ive wanted to do a starship rc plane but hard to do and keep it looking original and not klunky... that is a fantastic job he did, i little better on his CG balancing and it would probably perform even better and look better yet......

There are some cool Japanese builders out there. A lot of them have also documented their build process pretty well photographically. I have translated them and put them into Word documents so that I don't lose them. Some of the stuff is really innovative.

Here are some links to the build docs and related movies:

That Godzilla just slays me. I wonder if it has a CO2 based breath weapon which can be triggered?

I'm surprised they didn't the sub from The Private Life of Sherlock Holmes, with the Nessie head over the periscope.
