RC Submarine (X4)

Project Air RC Submarine

For as long as I’ve been building boats and other water based projects, I’ve wanted to build a submarine – now I have!

A small, agile submersible would be a useful thing for me to have on standby should something end up at the bottom of a lake. For this reason, I wanted to build a reliable and simple craft that would have the sole purpose of being a scout to search and locate things a few metres down, so I could film and retrieve them. I didn’t quite manage that, which makes this build still a work in progress, but this was a fascinating project to undertake, and I’m still working on it.
