  • SubDriver - 2.5" OD - Single shaft - 25.5" length - 1:96 Skipjack

    DETAILS

     

    This Sub-driver (SD) is specifically designed to power, control, and produce the weight change required to operate the radio-controlled, 1/96 D&E SKIPJACK model submarine, as a static diving submarine. 

     

    In addition to that primary use, this Sub-driver also has utility on any other wet-hull type r/c model submarine that is large enough to accommodate the unit, employs a single propeller, and has an above waterline structure displacement of no more than fourteen-ounces of fresh-water.

    • 1/16 KAIRYU
