212A Model Submarine SET BRUSHLESS

Static Diving Model Submarine with Piston Tank

NEW! Now with ready-made and painted hull.

This SET version comes with brushless propulsion motor!

Type 212 of the German Navy is today’s most modern submarine.
This is its counterpart in 1/70 scale.

Result: a handy sized model submarine equipped with a Piston Tank – performs and dives just as in full size.

This new model submarine developed by ENGEL offers besides radial parting with bayonet lock ring and Tech Rack© very compact dimensions and easy handling. Hull, sail and all other attaching parts are highly detailed. The Tech Rack© slides into the front part of the hull offering easy access to most of the boat’s internal components.

Building is straight forward and quite simple as all parts are prefabricated is highly detailed and sturdy.
The hull is made of super strong ABS with a thicknes of more than 2 mm and ready-assembled with bayonet lock ring and aft bulk head.
Control planes and ridges are cast in resin.
Rudder yokes, rudder shafts and linkages for aft control planes are also installed.
The hull is pre-painted with original color code RAL 8019 and aged. Put the water level markings on and it is ready! A layer of clear flat paint can be applied for making the model less sensitive to scratches and fingerprints (this is an issue with flat paint).

The Tech Rack© is constructed of sturdy CNC-machined, interlocking parts, reinforced with ready-made brass bars. Piston Tank included features AutoStop, meaning that the piston drive will automatically stop at an instant as soon as the tank is completely filled or emptied. Piston Tank and electronic switch unit CTS2 are both fully built forming a compact unit without extensive and frail wiring.

As all ENGEL sub models the 212 also comes with a full safety package including

• loss of transmitter signal
• loss of receiver signal
• low battery monitor
• pressure switch

This SET includes instead of a brushed motor a brushless motor MERCURY BL Outrunner C35-30-300 with 300 kV  as well as electronic speed controller SUB-COMMANDER BL 30 and Reverse Drive Detection BL for pitch control DLx2 (also included in this set); this unit is required for detecting rotational direction of the brushless motor.

Two pre-shaped lead plates with approx. 490 g each form the model’s basic ballast.

Kit includes:
• Ready-made and painted hull unit (base paint RAL 8019) including sail and control planes.
• Tech Rack© made of CNC-machined, interlocking parts and brass bars.
