  • Sub-driver Price Reductions

    Over the next few weeks we will be changing things around regarding the way we market our Sub-drivers. Some of the sizes will disappear, and some new and smaller units will emerge.

    SD352 Sub-driver 3.5/2 Twin Screw was $595.00, and is now available IN KIT FORM only @ $370.00 (This is a larger Sub-driver for those bigger twin screw GRP models. We figure that if you can deal with a GRP model, then you can put this together - Merriman's not your mother!):)

    SD35 Sub-driver 3.5 single screw - still available, but we have some in stock 20% reduction to clear, then they will only be available in Kit Form.
    was $540 now $432.00. Once these have gone, in KIT FORM only @ $360.00

    The following will be available in kit form in our new 2" diameter Sub-driver. They come with motor/s, ESC & servos installed.
    Revell VII $380
    Moebius Seaview $380
    Trumpeter Kilo $380
    Trumpeter Seawolf $380
    (All fully assembled and tested = $450)

    2.5" Sub-drivers with motor/s, no ESC or servos.

    D&E Skipjack $350
    Revell Gato $350
    (All fully assembled and tested = $420)

    These changes will occur in the New Year, but please let me know if you have an immediate interest as I may be able to accommodate you.

    I am convinced that a D&E Subdriver is the only way to go...

    I do have a couple of questions;

    Does the 3.5/2 kit include the motors that come with the "complete" unit or do I need to order them separately?

    What is the overall length of the assembled unit?

    Thanks!!

        Yes, it includes the motors, equipment tray, and servo for ballast tank. Everything else you need to order.

        The unit will be made extra long, so it can be cut down to alter the size of the ballast tank. You'll need a battery compartment if using Lipos, or put large wet cells in the wet up front.

          I have a (very used) Metcalf P Class hull I am trying to resurrect... I have the servos, reciever, battery, and ESC's.

          What other items/options do you reccomend?

          Thanks,

              This is my 2nd sub. I built the Dumas Bluefish first. I modified it to make the rear planes functional as well.

              I did a build log here http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showt...ight=jeep4grog

              I started on the Metcalf after that and have re-attached the conning tower and cleaned up the hull a bit. I have most of the scopes and radars done and ready to attach. I started building my own WTC then I had a small stroke. That put this on hold for a year or so...

              Now I am back to work and want to finish the sub. The WTC isn't working out as I had hoped (Yes Dave, I have learned...) I attached a couple of pics showing the Metcalf hull. I have all the running gear, radio, etc. If you can let me know what I need to finish the 3.5/2 WTC kit, I would like to spend the winter finishing the build. I am looking forward to a spring launch.

                Hey, Join the Club, I had a Stroke 7 months ago.
                No way I could wait a year without building something, tho. :)
                2 months after Stroke I jumped back In, with 1 foot and 1 hand. :D
                I did switch to Plastic hulls tho, which are easier to do with one hand, than wood planks.

                Great job on the Bluefish!
                I think your's is the first P-class I've seen in the fabrication phase, very Interesting.
                Looks like it's almost complete? Does it need much work, to get it going again?

                  I am ready for the WTC. Then it's running gear and sea trails...

                    Mike and David should certainly be able to help with those.

                      It's a 3.5/2 in kit form. But put a Snort in there too.

                      I'd like to see what you've done for the rear planes and rudder setup. (If you've got that far?) Can you post some pictures?

                        I am ready to buy... I just need to know what comes with the kit and what else I need to purchase to complete it. I already have the ESC's, radio gear, servos, etc.

                        btw Toppack, I didn't stop doing everything after my srtoke. I have a cruiser (2004 Yamaha 1600cc V-Twin Road Star) and I rode to Myrtle Beach Bike Week in May, around lake Erie in June, to the the keys in August and did a LOT of weekend rides. I also got remarried (She rides her own harley), we bought a new house and have done a fair amount of remodeling with my one good arm... Now I can work on the sub!!!!!!!

                          That's Great! Sounds like you really kept motivated.
                          Too many people just become Hermits, when they have a stroke.

                          Come On 'Shriveled-Sausage' (kazzer) Tell the man what he Needs for the Sub! :D LOL :D
                          If you tell him wrong, he won't Blam you Too much. :D

                            then it sounds like all you need is the pitch controller and fail safe I what you are saying is correct.

                              I have the pitch controller, a fail safe, and a depth controller from Mikes Subworks too...
