1/72 Moebius Skipjack (Scamp)

Postby salmon » Sun Nov 10, 2013 9:01 pm

Yesterday I got a chance to test the Scamp out in grandmother's pool! Wow this sub is fast! Even with the throttle dialed back on the TX to 50% it still moves.

A very fun sub! Got to do some tweaking (the sail plane would not connect), but hopefully be able to get back in the water tomorrow! Incredibly fun sub!

Cool. Is that a whirlpool on the surface behind the sail in the first picture?

Why yes it is! The sub just went below the surface.
There is a video that goes with this on youtube, it is here if you want to see it:

Great job. Did you use everything from SubDriver and the snort system?

P.s. Back surgery went well.

Ken! Glad to see you returning and that the surgery went well!
Yes this is a sub-driver WTC, fittings kit, using the SAS system.

Very very nice Tom!
I, for the first time, believe it or not, searched the build logs and saw the pix and video. I love it.

Matt,
Sure will be there. I will bring the Scamp and others. Really looking forward to meeting you Matt. Keystone is a beautiful area and should be a fantastic line-up of events. Tom Spettle and Colorado Crew are working hard to make it special.
Peace,
Tom
