    Another toy, courtesy of Amazon 7 or 8 years ago.
    I bought the beast for about ยฃ12 / 15โ‚ฌ. It was on offer!
    I use it at model exhibitions where there is a pool.
    The sub is about 15cm/6" in length, complete with basic r/c system.
    It will sail forwards and reverse, turns to the right and left courtesy of water jets, and by use of 2 buttons on the top corners will submerge and resurface. It has rechargeable batteries inside, these are recharged by use of a fly lead from the tx!

    The main users are children and sometimes adults who want to have a go!
    It generates lots of interest, so much so that sometimes children join the club and go on to build small freelance fishing boats - the majority of models are fishing and military boats, we have the Brest naval base close by and several fishing ports.

    On my RV Northern Explorer I have a stern gantry to lower a submarine into the water. I always looked at this critter but had my doubts as to its longevity. Another drawback for my application is it doesnt have an onboard camera. At the moment I have a GroPro housing converted to look like a submarine but its horribly bulky. Thanks for sharing

    MICHEL C ami suisse, swiss friend
    i have seen the submarine diving in the pond of the parc and no technical problems whatsoever. It is incredible, the technicety , the seize, and a clubmember has it already for 2 years without any trouble. So it is no chi.......rubbish.

    Looks like fun Stotty๐Ÿ‘
    Would like to see her in action.
    Maybe you could video her next outing?
    Diving mechanism in such a small hull borders on impossible!
    Cheers, Doug๐Ÿ˜Ž
