    Could you please suggest how i can move a propeller underwater without leaking water in the sub, and are there any products out there? Oh and instead of moving flaps to control pitch in my submarine i’m using a motor thath moves a wieght to upset the center of gravity. and the same for roll only on a leteral movment, however i still have to make a rudder to steer it? How can one make a water proof rudder?

    what in that white tube that when you move it away turns on the torpedo?

    I use the contrarotation to stabilise the torp just like a bullet.
    To make sure there is enough rotation and keep it straight in the water everything of the electric stuff is in the center of the torp.

    I am trying to …
    I am trying to figure out the best way to build a contra-rotating propeller set up for a 1/9 scale torpedo, just like the real G7e electric torpedo.. I see your torpedo has a single propeller. Doesn’t it suffer from torque roll and tend to want to spin around in the opposite direction of the electric motor’s rotation, or all least roll to one side while running?

    I Had the same idea, and used the frontend of a cigartube, the back end is made of a special kind of plastick.
    This plastick has the property to float, you can also use corck.

    i have been trying to build a torpedo such as the one you used but i have been having a hard time with it. i know how the insides of you torpedoe works and my ideas are similar except mine has a warhead that uses a fire craker to tell the boat that it has been sunk. so the hardest part for me is the casing of the torpedo. did you make yours of buy it. if so where did you buy it. please help.

    I had to laugh. I built the same thing 10 years ago with a pager motor and a reed switch from a microphone switch. I will have to do a video. The biggest draw back was the cost, ability to recover, and the torpedo would counter spin, reducing forward energy.

    you know what i apologize i did not see the other videos…you got a great looking model there and i hope you dont mind me taking notes for my typhoon class. Again, great work. You should be proud!

    I use a springsystem to push the torpedo out of the tube.
