At least flying off on their own you can pretend they flew off on some romantic adventure. Mine usually end up in a small crater with a 10 foot debris field of balsa wood, mylar and various electronic components that require forensics to determine what they were. Had there been passengers, there would have been no survivors...

Re: Underwater Drone: Anchor Set Check, Safe Passages

Check out the ROV section under boats on RCGroups.com.
Many people have built much more capable rovs for much less money.
Large diameter ABS piping for the bodies, onboard power using a LiPo battery usually, cat 5 ethernet cableback to a laptop for control and imaging.
Complete control boards are available.
Brushless DC motors can run underwater with no protection.
The sailboat section is pretty cool as well, I have a couple small RC sailboats I keep onboard for playing at anchor. Would love to try out a foiling RC cat!
