This was the first attempt we did to adapt the prototype to the steel molds. Sadly, it presented some weaknesses that we wanted to correct. Most of them were details, such as the best way to mount and replace the turbines and propellers, but others were more crucial for the assembly of the Ziphius, such as to ensure that at the assembly line we could mount all the electronics. Well, gotta try a few times before succeeding, right?

In other news, we’ve tested the new turbines and propellers and we are very satisfied with their performance.
