I have over $ 1000.00 in my Garo RC Sub. It sound expensive but when you crash a sub like I do with my RC Helicopters and RC planes it's just retrieve the sub and do repairs. Normally something like the compressed air tank was depleted or maybe a battery failure. Mostly simple to repair effort and expense. How ever when you crash a plane or Heli it's generally a replacement plane or major repairs to the Heli with expensive parts.

With RC Submarines when you go to run them you don't normally see another submarine unless your with your submarine buddies. I've never run my submarine and seen another one. It's always me and the surface boats.

I guess a good place to run them is the biggest problem. A Large pool or clear water pond can be hard to find if you don't live in an area with clear water. I know in Louisiana finding clear water was a big problem..

I've had so much fun with the Subs I just can't tell you.

They do require allot of maintenance. But worth it.
