And now for something completely different...

Turns out Hasegawa egg plane series kits fit almost perfectly around the dive master hull. The plastic is also just about neutrally buoyant, so all I had to do was match the CG of the Divemaster with the frame.

Too much fun "flying" this guy around. I'm going to convert my SR71 next.

i like how you didn't have to modify the sub to make a new hull for it

Yeah the egg plane kits really are a perfect fit. There are only a few drops of can holding the sub to the plane, so it could be returned to stock easily.

Ha ha! Your choice of music is priceless.

I have yet to see these turn up at Toys-R-Us or Walmart.

Great video. There aren't many R/C toys out there that are at home in the bathroom sink. You know that sub is smaller than those baking soda powered ones we used to play with.

I think they still have them at my TRU. They're regularly $41, but they go on sale occasionally. I'd be happy to pick one up and send it your way.
