        WOW! Romel,

        1965, now that goes back a long time. I knew they were flying RC Aircraft then but had no idea they were running submarines! Very interesting! Thanks for the post!

              Love the rotary dial controller.
              From what I understand you have to dial in a set numerical sequence to initiate a maneuver.
