    New Motors and Throttles (ESC)!
    When I ordered the Futaba F-14
    Controller
    . I forgot to order some motors and ESC's. So, I ordered them from CMB. They should arrive in a few days! The ESC's are the Mtroniks 15 amp's The Motors are MFA-919D 11.1 Ratio! They should prove to be ample power. For the Tug: Smit Nederland!

    "Dual Throttle
    Controller
    !" So you'll have a "Tank tug" Ed ๐Ÿ˜‰ Not easy to steer a smooth course, but you could turn it round on it's backside if you want to ๐Ÿ˜ Good luck๐Ÿคž Using two hands to steer you're going to need a third hand (or a First Mate) to control all the special functions. Happy juggling!! Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž BTW: As senior officer aboard you have Command ๐Ÿ˜‰ G'night Commodore๐Ÿ’ค

    Sub dive system.
    Ho Peter, What gas do they use then? I was actually thinking more of Sparklets syphon soda blubs, er 'hic' ๐Ÿ˜ฎ If you want to go the gas route I suggest you look for some US model sub sites. They seem to favour gas tanks whereas in Europe the piston tank is more popular. I've been wondering for a few days why our antipodean colleagues haven't chipped in to this discussion! Reilly 4 for instance. He has at least one great sub model and has posted super videos of his underwater travels. BTW Pete, It doesn't end with just the ballast / dive tank system! If you want to keep an 'even keel' while travelling underwater the following are highly recommended. - Attitude
    Controller
    (Pitch
    Controller
    ), which constantly adjust dive planes to stop the boat pitching up and down, or even porpoising along the surface ๐Ÿ˜ฎ - Reverse detector. This actuates as soon as the motor reverses. It commands the pitch
    Controller
    to reverse the action of the dive planes if you also want to be able to reverse while underwater. Otherwise the planes would have the opposite effect to that which is required and make the pitching worse instead of smoothing it out. Of course you can still sail and dive without these but depth control will be very difficult. You'll be constantly correcting and correcting the corrections ๐Ÿค” Just like with a dynamic diver. The Yo Yo effect! Cheers, Doug ๐Ÿ˜Ž

    Can anyone help please?
    I had the same problem with a V40 Speed
    Controller
    . Used several times, until i switched on the the power through the RX and a proper smoke out.
    Controller
    was completely burnt out through the power switch. Still cannot understand Why?. A new Speed
    Controller
    was purchased, no problems since.
