I use the Subdrivers a lot. Most of my subs have those in them. I do not have Ron's wtc.
Differences sub-driver is one unit, using internal air to empty ballast tank until sub surfaces (SAS). Then the air is replaced once it is surfaced. It is a dynamic diving sub, meaning it is set up so that forward motion brings the sub under the water (yes it does have a ballast tank, but the strictest definition is it needs forward motion to dive). Ron's wtc is set up to be static, meaning it can go below the surface and does not need any forward motion to dive. It does not have a motor, you will need another water tight container for the motor. It uses pistons to dive.
Both systems work.
If you can cut, drill, saw, hit things and swear a lot, you're well on the way to building a working model sub.
