Well I had a little trouble today. My wife was gone so I had to video myself using a tripod and my hands while I tried to drive the boat at the same time. So so. But I did get some footage that proves how well she works. She dives smooth and holds depth well. In fact at one point I went about 8 foot deep. No problems found and if your going to find it it’s at depth.
Towards the end of the run my daughter came home from the studio and I was about to ask her to shoot some video when bubbles came rushing out of the boat and she began to sink. As it turned out the ESC had blown out and a fire was in the cylinder that created pressure and blew out on of the seals enough to let water in. No fault of the cylinder and as BigDave it’s maker said, ” I guess Ship happens!” LOL!
So off it goes to the BigDave guy who will fix the ESC and send it to Pat the owner. All is well that ends well. This rarely happens but today was my day. Oh and yes the ESC is the Electronic Speed Control for you non-RC folks.
Here’s a short video of the boat she’s a great one,
