RC READY TO RUN – LA CLASS DIVING SUBMARINE 1:100 SCALE
This is the finest example of this United States Navy submarine type available as a radio control model. The engineering and materials used reflect the job this model is intended to do, travel under the surface of water.
The hull is triple thick with layers of overlapping fiberglass cloth, built strong with heavy duty seals to keep out water and keep in pressurized air. Simple design layout is easy to understand, off the shelf hobby components are easily accessible in three large equipment areas.
Large watertight hatches allow fast and easy access to most parts of the model.

EXCEPTIONAL DETAIL IN THE HULL!!
Recommend boat stand - stand is not included (Purchase from Tower Hobby):
A submarine is not like any other radio control model, certain steps must be taken to safely return from the depths. Always test your submarine in shallow waters to confirm all systems are operating correctly before attempting dives where you cannot see the bottom.
The submerging system of this submarine is designed to use a geared pump to move ballast water into storage tanks aboard the model. When the hatches are properly sealed, the ballast tanks and the equipment spaces become a water tight container(WTC). The design of this model submarine hull turns the built in WTC into a pressure module, capable of storing air displaced by ballast on board in compressed form. In the event of radio signal loss underwater, the compressed air will force the ballast water slowly out and sub will return to the surface.
