Hi Guardian,

Greg Sharpe of DeepSeaDesigns sells detailed plans and instructions to build a waterproof case for RC Transmitters...you can contact him at [email]deepseadesigns@telus.net.[/email] I don't know mr.Sharpe but I'm sure there are members here on the SC board that can give you more detailed informations and prices.

...and the current issue of the SubComittee Report has an article submitted by Greg Sharpe that shows how he built his underwater transmitter case. He even included the plans!

If you are not currently a member of the SubCommittee, now may be a good time to join!

I believe Greg's plans run $10US. The following is taken from some documentation that he has given me.

Control your R/C submarine from underwater! Just the thing for BIG FUN scuba or snorkeling adventures. It puts you right in the action! A detailed building guide with photos and drawings tell how to construct of one of these devices. Any R/C radio that can be taken apart could be utilized, however the guide is based on a Futaba Conquest four channel system.

Construction is simple and should be well within the skills of anyone who can construct a watertight R/C submarine model. Briefly, the existing radio case is discarded and it's internals are fitted into a new waterproof box. Minor soldering skills are required to extend a few radio wires. The case itself is a simple plastic box that is glued and screwed together. A removable, O-ring sealed rear cover allows access into the case. R/C control is accomplished with four waterproof, rotary levers in place ot the original joy sticks.

This unit has been tested to a depth of 25 feet in fresh water with a radio signal transmission of 75 to 100 feet. Transmission results can vary depending on the mineral content of the water.

For fresh water use only! Will not function in salt water. Please be advised that brackish water or chlorine may shorten signal transmission length.



For anybody trying to get a hold of him lately, he's been hit bad with the computer viruses going around, so his e-mail is down for a while. Just keep trying and you'll eventually get through, though.

Mike,

Our SubCommittee home page has a link for "Join Us".....it has all the details.

Our membership year runs on an annual calendar basis, so folks who join now would get the March, June, and September issue sent to them immediately. Once the December issue is sent, all memberships would need to be renewed. (that's the sort of long answer for: yes, you'll get the current issue if you join now :D )

Hi Jeff,
