Lighting of the RC Moebius Seaview

Postby diverdown » Fri Aug 08, 2008 4:50 pm

I really would like to install waterproof lights in the nose, observation deck, sail (running light (white), port (red) and starboard (green) lights), and the two tail fins.

I have seen the Disney Nautilus with lights, so I know it can be done, but have no idea how it was pulled off.

Can some one help me out?

Thanks.

There is a company that has been around for years and years, Voodoo FX. They can help you out.

They even can give your SEAVIEW its PING: http://www.voodoofx.com/news.htm

As for the lighting kit, I clicked "Page Down" 17 times and there was their kit (your computer may differ.) +$60 with shipping.

I will probably get a kit from them when I get a bit ahead of the bills . . . :roll:

P.S. As for waterproofing? Maybe a good layer of clear epoxy over the connections and a good watertaight box over the electronics. I have never tried. Maybe a more experienced sub driver could help with that one.

Watertight lights for Seaview

Postby diverdown » Tue Aug 26, 2008 4:00 pm

Thanks for your message. I do alot of business with VoodooFX. They are great.

These lights are for the RC Seaview. If my conversion is done right, these lights will be going under water. I'm no expert but doesn't the whole system need to be watertight or it will short out?

Best.
