Quite true, Andy...it's always best to sail in nice clear water, where you can see what your boat is doing at all times. I'm still not keen on sailing in running water though, salmon or no salmon...it only takes one slight failure of something in the boat, or even a false move on the part of the operator, and you're in trouble.

Clear waters sounds good to me too, ill be scouting around at the mo, too cold for river stuff just yet so ill make use of the pool once a week, i can use my Quadcopter to get a nice birds eye of target areas in the meantime. I still have a few mods to do to the SB1 too, got the Video Buoy to make up and a reversing cam thats gonna be my FPV cam to waterproof more :)

 Rich - i couldnt find the PM where you told me what i would need for doing the lights via a spare channel - what was it called again?

Also ... any help with setting up a Grabber Claw idea thing for object retrieval would be appreciated :) ... was actually thinking of another transmitter for a claw so it can use 6 channels a few Mhz off 40, its the claw thing im not sure about.

Hi Rob,


The switcher you need is a Turnigy Electronic Switcher, just needs one channel to switch the lights on/off.


Pm me your address again and I'll send you that grab arm to try, it only needs one servo to open and close the jaws.

Thanks for the info etc Rich, top advice mate, ill get some pix up when ive done the mods.

EDIT:
I mentioned in my PM about a post i read somewhere about a 1 way valve mod, guess you should reply here too so its easier to find, (I read somewhere you can add a 1 way valve to release pressue which enables more depth), wondering if anyones tried that.
