Guys,

In preparation for SubRegatta and Sun N Fun I've put my SSNs into the yard and overhauled their shared reactor.

The WTC now runs on a 6 cell 4200 mah NiMH pack. My 1500 mah NiCads are now relegated to emergency propulsion. Can you say run-time upgrade?

The smaller pack is a custom NiMH pack consisting of 3 cells for the new sail mounted LED running lights on my LA and 1 cell for the rudder mounted incandescent stern light.

The officer in charge of this overhaul was Gail Phillips. He took me out to the New Creations R/C yard in Willis, TX where the packs were custom made while we waited.

Thanks, Gail!
Warm regards,

Paul Crozier

Well, they say modern subs are only limited by the endurance of their crews. We sell whats called a "Spare Bladder" for deer hunters in treestands. I think with one of those and a cell phone for pizza you'll be patrolling all day with this rig.
Looking forward to seeing your boats (and you) in action in acouple weeks. Kudos to your ENG as well he knows his bats

Another reason to bring a spare RCABS bladder to the regatta!
