  • Thunder Tiger Neptune

    Well as it always happens, I was looking for something else and I saw this, a Thunder Tiger Neptune sub. The guy bought it, tested it once in the bathtub, then just put it away as he had a date with his future wife. He never got around to play with it again. As I loved that video Bob made of the Thunder Tiger Neptune, I decided to get it as they are rare, let alone in this condition. Its being shipped from Europe to the US, but i got a very good price with shipping to the US, cant wait to get it. I will first test it how it is, then once I know it works, let the modding begin.

    Wouldn't think the radio is legal in the US.

      I got plenty of new 75mhz radio systems to use in it if I need to replace it. I never even asked the guy what Feq the radio was on, as it didn't matter to me.

        Hi Sinksalot,

        I purchased a used Neptune from Bob Martin (Nautilus Drydocks) about a year and a half ago!

        I have been using it in our swimming pool! I have had to do some ballast adjustments to it (weight adjustments) and I purchased and replaced some parts on it.
        I hope you enjoy yours, it is really a quality build machine!

          Yea If I would not have seen Bob's Video on this sub I would not have bought it. As I wouldn't know how fun it was to run. From all the pictures and videos I seen of it, it looks well constructed. Plus I got a very good deal on it. As this is coming from Europe if may have a 40mhz radio, but that is not a problem, I will just swap out the receiver. I saw Bob replace the prop, I may do that. Oh and one final thing, thank god for google translate. As the guy I bought it from didn't know hardly any English and I didn't know any German.

                  You will have a blast with the boat. I'd recommend a battery upgrade and a higher thrust prop, but other than that, they're absolutely awesome.

                    You may be able to recuperate a bit of cash by selling the TX and RX to a country that has 40mhz as a legal frequency. It's a basic set so price it sensible and it should move to a new home, although shipping may be an issue.
