Here are photos of the electronics ( I still need to sort out what's what because I was testing the front dive planes) and the finished look of the submarine.

I have one of these. Have you looked at Engels rme. You need the front planes on digital servos though. It is a nifty thing and not to expensive. It controls front 2 servos (and not a microswitch anywhere). I have the retract to the front planes on the undercarriage switch ( they then just toggle in and out). The nice thing as when you select retract the planes automatically go to neutral first and are then prevented from moving until extended again. Not only does this prevent any damage you can have the front and rear dive planes off one receiver output and a Y lead with no problems. Nearly forgot I have a mtroniks switcher connected to the undercarriage output on the receiver when operated it provides a connection on the rme with an earth which is used to operate the retract servo

Thank you, I have the front and back dive planes on separate channels at the moment and the ground dive planes mechanisum is operating on a servo, the mechanisum was installed when I got the submarine.
