    David,
    Very nice sub. That Albacore looks like it wants to let go and run(even on the surface). Did you see how fast it would go?

    As these were the initial open water tests I had the transmitter throttle set-point at less than 50%. Even then, the boat was crazy fast when I firewalled it a few times. Got two motors in this beast, one for each propeller:

    trimming 1/96 USS ALBACORE FlKAJE

    trimming 1/96 USS ALBACORE YVevx6

    trimming 1/96 USS ALBACORE XikE6Y

    Once I get the boat into proper trim and the control surface mixing and throws fine-tuned, then I'll unleash the throttle and will see If I can shatter the space-time-continuum with this rocket.
