Hi Steve ,

Could you tell me where to get a tube of the silicone grease?
I have tried to find it in the stores close to me and so far all
I have been able to find is automotive bulb grease in a very
small tube .

Hi Darle -
You can get high quality silicone grease from your local scuba diving shop and it is fairly inexpensive. It is used for lubing the O-rings in regulators.

Hi Tim ,

Thank you for the info . I am not to sure that I will find a
scuba shop around here ?? I will have to check that out .
I live in SE Indiana and the only water close by that a
person might go scuba diving in is the Ohio river . Knowing
the condition of the water , I believe a mini sub would be
safer ........
I know that I won't be running any RC sub of mine in it .

Darle :D

That's the beauty of the 'net Darle, on-line shopping. Just do a Google search on scuba shops or "silicone grease".

You can get silicone grease at the hardware store, they use it for lubing faucets.
