Usual despair story I'm afraid, bought one of these for the great grandson who at 5 is mad about it, but of course one of the motors has seized due to water ingress despite spreading petroleum jelly around the pod joints before use and drying etc afterwards. I was offered a refund but declined because it's no longer available and the aforementioned lad is so attached to it. I've read how lots of folks have modified these with more conventional inboard drives etc and I'd like to do something like that here but the problem is my hands which no longer allow me to do any modelling or delicate work, even writing is a problem. If possible I'd like to find someone in the Southampton/Portsmouth/Winchester/Chichester (England) area who could help, if possible I'd like to retain the current RC set up if possible and I'm not after a scale speed craft, a couple of small brush type motors, shafts etc in the current hull space would be fine and of course I'd recompense for time etc. Can anyone out there help please?
