    Go with the KILO and our SD and fittings kit. Read all threads here. Don't copy other peoples work " i have to cast a mold from a kit..."! You buy the Trumpeter KILO kit and use that. Period.

    Swear your allegiance to me, and take the mandatory blood-oath. Or, suffer!

    What r/c vehicles have you operated to date?

    R/c submarining is not an 'entry level' activity.

  • Newbie, Building Gato or Trumpeter Kilo, whats involved?

    hello to you all, For my very first i thought i might get the Gato since it is a kit, comes with everything (except for control er etc.) and a dvd which i assume help you build it from reading the forum. I also think of buying the Trumpeter Kilo instead as it is cheaper and i can buy the part separately as i have to save for them and gives me something to do. What is involved in these kits? I seen images and buy the look of it, do i have to cast a mold from a kit and fill them with resin or can i just 'glue/screw' the kit together and it will be all okay? Also, which kit do you recommend and strongest for dam water (I'm rural Tasmania, Australia and i most likely test in a neighbour dam, or maybe not...)?
