This little boat has proven to be a major hit with model submariners in general and R/C modellers in particular. The detail depicted is superb and spot on with the prototype and at around £50 for a kit it represents excellent value for money.

   We at R&R recognised the potential of the “Skippy” as soon as we saw the first models and set out to produce a conversion kit so it could be easily converted to radio control.

Pumped Tank Module Conversion Kit

Price £370

Our pump system module comes complete with the 



540 type drive motor 

All pre-installed as seen in the picture. All you need to add is a 4 channel RC equipment and two speed controllers, one controlling the drive motor the other the pump.

 The kit also includes  

Tiller arms (cast in brass),

Stainless steel prop shaft

,Control rods with qd clips

Tapered brass insert so that the propeller supplied with the kit can be utilised.

Waterproof on / off switch.

 CNC cut bulkheads required to install the kit. 

 CNC cut grills to secure over the moulded grill positions depicted on the model.

All in all we feel that we have got it covered, other than the radio control and electronics there is nothing else needed to complete and run a fully submersible Skipjack. 

Conversion Kit installed into a hull. Please note Radio Control Equipment not included.

The ten pictures below show in detail all the components included in the conversion kit

The below images show the gratings included in the conversion kit that R & R have developed to fit into the flood slots in the hull, along with pictures of our own model prior to weathering
