Dumas Akula 3

Postby Ahab79 » Sun Mar 24, 2013 9:40 am

Well I'm back. After a much needed hiatus I'm back working on my Dumas Akula. Bad news my laptop died and all my saved data. So I may need to be bugging you good people for yet more advice. GOOD NEWS. I actually have money in my pocket and the divorce is final so I can spend some money on myself. I'm giving up on scratch building my own WTC. So best place to get a lexan tube with end caps? Also. What is the best size for an this model....and my question mark key just stopped working so....maybe new laptop is crap....

If you just want a dynamic diver, you could get something like this-

If you want a ballast system, then something like this-

Those are great. But I have all my electronics. I'm thinking more just the tube.

I think this may be a better option for me. Looks like I can build my tray to the way I want it and fit it into this system. I have servo's. Reciever/transmitter. Motor. ESC with BEC. I even have a ADF from sub-driver.com. And battery. My hull is almost done. I'm almost ready to go. I just want to make sure I don't go buy something I'm not going to use.

The 3.5" SD is much too big for your boat.

The ones I linked to are suitable, and although the photos show the insides fitted out, I beleive the electronics are extra, so you can use most of your existing kit.

Well sub driver doesn't supply a "bare bones 2.5" WTC. Only fully loaded ones.
Has anyone had any luck with the WTC from China on ebay? I'm hesitant to purchase anything. But then again the price is right.
So any thoughts?

Don't know. probably okay.

There is this one up for grabs- very bare bones, but will do the job well enough when fitted out.
