    Robbe U47 Dynamic to Static

    Post  rnli12 on Sat Dec 20, 2014 10:34 am

    Finally got my hands on a Robbe U47 after selling mine some years ago, this time I want to convert it straight away during build with a static dive system but need to keep costs down too.

    Any build logs or links advice etc appreciated.

    Hi Rich,

    I have had a bit of a look for build logs etc.

    Not much available - nothing on here about the U47 but a search on "Robbe"  gives some background. I have also had a look at magazine articles - nothing, although I do remember that the SubCommittee magazine had some general articles. Have you looked on their Forum? Let us know if anything turns up.

    I think that you have some good advice from Andy L (Subculture) over on Model Boat Mayhem i.e use Engel piston tanks. Hard to beat if you have the budget.
