But your using normal radio gear? the depth of the lake should not be a problem for the rc gear its only about 2 feet deep

Was with my gf just out for a walk, we sat there for abit n watched the sub then left when you walked around the lake with it

Will be down there maybe tomorrow, or tues and on wens racing from 5pm, let us know when your going next n i will bring the yacht down, always find it better when theres someone else about to chat to

Could you not just get a water tight seal then put it through the water proof box and run it up along the deck? just wake abit of glue over the end of the wire to stop water getin inside the wire, thata what my ohio had worked fine  :-))

I want to hear from someone in your club that the sub is working properly and is watertight. Once I have that assurance I will send you an auto leveller, free of charge...once you have it, send it to Sub John, ask VERY nicely, and ask if he will carry out the necessary modifications to it and I will pay him for doing so.

Then you can install it in your sub and away you go. How's that sound?

I think this boat is set-up with bow plane control only, Rich.

You could get the rear planes working I guess, but it will require some modification, unless they've been converted already?

Sods law says the most likely part to fail in a boat is also the most inaccessible.

If there is no access, cut in small hatch, and make good.
