The ENGEL VII/c is believed to be the best model submarine available - and now it's even better!
This new kit series is equipped with brushless motors on the main drive and now comes with CNC-cut vents in top deck and hull.
The hull unit is of the same high quality as the rest of the Engel model series made from hand laminated Epoxy and extremely rigid. The only downturn of the previous kits was cutting the vents - we have done this job for you now!
All other fittings and accessories such as the conning tower, diving planes, and rudders are made from resin and are highly detailed. The conning tower is now fully assembled including railing. The 8.8cm cannon and 2cm AA gun are also pre-assembled and ready to mount.
The kit also includes a full set of fittings such as net cutter, railings and various other brass as well as resin parts which give this model top-notch appearance.
The model is outfitted with a radial division to allow the inner section (so-called technical frame or Tech-Rack) to be inserted. It is made of CNC cut PVC, which allows for easy and fast assembly. This entire frame is reinforced with alloy rods for additional support.
The WTC is a tube fabricated from 3mm (approx.1/8") PVC material and transparent.
The diving system consists of two piston tanks type XP750-12V (with 750ml volume each) and electronic switch unit Tmax v2.1.
The Tmax Diving System offers a maximum of features such as proportional as well as bow/aft heavy trim, three fail safe devices (max. depth via pressure switch, loss of signal and battery monitor) and LED status indication.
Tmax2 is ready for Static Depth Control TAES (item no. 1585-TAES-V).
The entire model's power system is based on 12V. There is also a seperate receiver battery 4.8V/3000mAh on board which allows an operational time of several hours.
All screws, bolts, nuts and struts are made of stainless steel, brass or alloy and are therefore rust proof.
