    This looks great. Any idea as to when this will come out and as to how much it will cost?

    This is a prototype and we have some minor alterations to make to it. Cost around $300 and about 6-8 weeks away!

    That's great news. Will there be a kit for the U-212 to accompany the mini-snort sub driver? If so, when is it likely to come out?

    We are not worthy! We are not worthy! :D

    Can you give us spec about this new sub-driver.

    In cabal report section you mentioned that this is a dynamic diver.
    That center section sure looks like a ballast tank to me.

    Much better looking that this Japanese version.

    I really Like the Servo linkage shown in the video. Tho more difficult to fabricate, it eliminates the sideways force caused by the ark of the servo arm, which causes a lot of drag in linkage. With those Micro servos a little extra Drag at the seal can cause a big problem, but that design fixes that problem. :)

    Nope! No specs yet!


    Yes, it does look like a ballast tank, because it is. Concept is that with ballast tank full, the boat is trimmed to be slightly negative with the tip of the sail out of the water. Once in that position, forward thrust will make it dive deeper. No forward motion will allow the boat to almost surface, and the Snort system will bring it to correct waterline position.

    So it operate the same way as the previous 1.5" micro snort sub-driver, using a solenoid valve to vent the ballast tank and a micro airpump to blow ballast.
