Post by: raf on June 17, 2010, 09:41:47 am

raf and I am living in Belgium
My language is Dutch so forgive my mistakes I will write in English
I'm building for over 35 years model submarines and am in possession of a piece or 14
my interest is to build boats and sail submarines
So if I have a club with some friends
from Belgium, Netherlands, France and Germany.

B. MSA was founded in 2009
and we already count a number of 55 members
and sail on a beautiful location in Mol
 7 days a year
calendar is on line at the website and forum
participation in an event is free off charge
The idea is to promote model submarines in Belgium
there are many good boat builders in the Netherlands and Belgium
they actually have no good water to their favorite hobby to exercise


This is not advertising here and I hope the forum a lot to learn and knowledge to others
here a picture of some off my boats
some under construction some ready to sail

Greetings raf

@ martin

a video taken at the lake
 my friend and i are building cheap submarines and Zea mammal's
here you can see my new shark

and an old type of ROV

this is the old one  we have now a new one that is  smaller and more stable than the blue one
at the end you Will see it 's picture

we don't have a video yet

the orka is build using The hull of an scooter type submarine you can see at one of the above movie's

you can see it pass by at 32 sec. 
here is the blue version we have them in different colors

the are dynamic diving and these boats are even in shallow water still good to drive (+/- 40 cm)
ailerons method combined with dive rudders
and rudder (hydro drive Robbe key west or systems speed boat)
Speed 500 motor with 3 / 1 gearbox
7 cell battery pack 3.300 mAh sanyo gives a 45 minutes run time
two norbert bruggen  stabilizers (ltr 2)under a 45 angle
R700 reciever graupner
lexan lid that is screwed shut with 10 nuts

fun to navigate and and always an audience draw
even the divers found the animals a great attraction underwater
divers bullying is also a fun activity
these ladies were on the wrong side of the riser
 So I have them but what bothered although they could have to laugh

regards raf

1 rudder and two tail fins like as an aileron /depth contole rudder

first sailing day of the weekend is over

Now and then we have a rain storm over us but it was given an ideal moment for a drink inside the canteen
served by a beautiful blonde # p/u/0/Jx6-LuosZqA
an impression of the course of the day
Tomorrow there will be more Photos
There were four nations today not bad for a small country like Belgium
the food will also have something to do with it i think

Today the weather was better than yesterday
a cold wind but it remained dry

1 submarine would play " Gry leady down " but was salvaged by divers

there were 40 ships present
 even so we should have tables for additional places
film and photos will follow later when I am rested a bit because a day like that is  stressing

as promised the photo film
It was a full success full weekend
outside those two incidents were the weather gods benevolent
increases with the number of participants each take
eating in the canteen and the beautiful serveuse will also play a role in it
beyond that we have a exelente water on a beautiful location

Greeting raf
film comes a bit later this has yet to be reworked
