I am finding the supplies that I have collected over the years for my first R/C sub. Getting married and moving from a one room apartment to a real house? It has taken a while to get things sorted again.
I have Great Planes Epoxy fiberglass. Three sets of 4.5 oz resin and hardener and three square yards of 2oz (medium) cloth. Will this do for a 97 cm hull? And 11 cm diameter?
Where do I get "gelcoat"? A boating supply store? I think there is one on the other side of town. I bought some expanding foam there once.
My studio is almost
ready. I will be redesigning my NAUTILUS
by Wednesday morning. Buying foam this Friday. Hope to start cutting as early as Sunday. I will take pictures and try to start a builder's thread.
Quick question, am I right in remembering that only the rear dive planes are operable in R/C subs?
I had thought to yoke the forward and rear diving planes together but the one hull that I have seen and touched has only the aft planes moving.
I also remember that +/- 35 degrees is as much range as necessary for diving planes and rudder. That was my question on a thread years and years ago.BIG DAVE!
I hope to be buying a 3 inch WTC from you come the spring. I have seen what you've done for Steve and I like it! Should have the +$500 by our tax return.
Please. I know what I am doing is old hat to most of you. But I could use all the advice and kibitzing you care to throw my way.
