Question
Flood chambers

A have the HK Pursuit and I need to know how to construct and apply a flood chamber so I can get the boat upright when it flips over. Is it possible?
I tried to run the boat upside down on a water tank and it actually moves slowly due to the prop aerodynamics effect, but I don't know if it will work at a major distance (with the RX antenna submerged) and if the motor and ESC will survive for about 30s or more at a moderate speed without the cooling system operational. I don't know also if I can steer the boat with the rudder aerodynamics effect.
All I want, when facing a flip event, is to get the boat upright automatically or get it coming near me without having to swim.
I will appreciate any help or advice I can get.
Thanks
