It came to me many years ago for a while (rubbish straight running boat.....I know old school) then with some of my clubs stickers and badges it was sent of to foreign parts vis a fellow mayhemer. All was well for a while, but then due to aviation laws all the radio and batteries had to be removed for transport, this of course did not deter our fellow mayhems and it traveled on, and on, and well on, until it must have entered Narnia. :}  but its back........ Guinness work record me thinks...(is it still Guinness  :o )
Mayhem 2020....red October look a likes for us all  :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) :-)) [size=78%] [/size]

Post 463 shows Red Ocktober back at Toe's yard with his other boats.


It was interesting to be part of the tour - it visited a few places when it came to Vancouver Island.

Red Oktober is back at it's home port and in good condition..I've just recovered it yesterday from the storage unit (there, due to a house move mid 21) and will be assembling the rest of the fleet for some pics!..

Try a message to Towsup - couple of posts back. As far as I know he has it back.


He had a couple of posts as well on the RC Groups site - the Springer topic might find him.


Trust this is helpful

Hi did Red O ever get to Australia? 
I was asked to take her with me some few years ago, but weight and size was going to mean it was excess baggage on the plane and rather expensive.  So I had to decline.

No, It was still under consideration up to the last moment, but when it reached Japan, it was pointed out that
That Red Oktober had been traveling for ten years... And maybe it should head home to Ralph. When it arrived,
back at home port, it was a surprise , and Ralph mentioned that he never thought he would see it again.
So I think it was a good decision to send it home, and not long after, Duncan, Arrow5, passed away.
 Kudos to Duncan Cameron for making so many of Red Oktober's visits and destinations possible.  :-)

Thanks for the info Umi.  Seems to have done very well travelling around.  Has she got many Airmiles?

Probably the most airmiles any submarine will ever get! Rest in Peace Duncan. It was fun reading about where Red Oktober had got to.
