*Please read this* I love the Air Swimmers and even have been getting prepared for the next race. But I was not happy with the Infra Red controller, as I kept aiming it towards the ground and loosing control. It also gets interferred with by others, including the Fluorescent lights. So I decided to put in one of the inexpensive Orange Receivers from HobbyKing.com and change to digital proportional control. ToysRUS sells a radio version, but still it's only 40 Mhz. I wanted Spektrum.
So the setup I designed for the tail fin works great, but the weight transfer system turned out to be just 12 grams too heavy and disappointing. Just a slightly bigger fish (more helium) would fix this, however.
Therefore, I decided to see if I could completely re-designed it to keep it simple and light. It now works very precisely, as you will see. I can easily guide it around with more control and the comfort of a real transmitter. (Synchronized Swimming)
I hope you enjoyed seeing this video and what a person can do if they set their mind to it.
