I took inspiration from here: Heavy-Lift Ship
This third version is the one that allowed me to achieve the greatest difference between floating and submerged ... I was hoping to get more, but the ship floats too well even though a hull made of only bricks... I needs more ballast in the center
the weight of the ship is about 2.54 kg
length: 62 cm
1 M-Motor to the propeller
1 M-Motor to direct propeller
1 M-Motor for the water pump (each ship has at least one!) That use to simulate the emptying of sealed chambers
1 M-Motor for the compressor, which allows me to move the pistons
2 IR RC system
Unfortunately, this time, the photos are low quality

previous versions on Flickr and YouTube
the contest ends ... but the history of this ship continues !
stay tuned here !
