Using a Spektrum radio in an FPV sub???

Hey!!

I am planning on building an FPV sub and using my Spektrum radio. I know the signal won't go below water. My thought is to use an AR8000 RX and extend the remote RX. I would run a cable from the main RX underwater to the remote that will be in a buoy on the surface. The cable would not be more than 50 feet long.

I have also e-mailed the folks at Spektrum. I hope I get an "official" answer.

Thoughts . . . ?

I have seen those. I like the idea of everything in one box that is known to be successful. Takes the fun out of designing and building though.

also you would need the video transmitter inside the buoy as its signal wouldn't penetrate the water.
