Not bad! Just need to get the tether situation all figured out - I think I'll put some floats on the tether near the ROV, that way the wire won't be pulling down so much on the frame itself. May also re-position the motors so that they are closer to the buoyancy tubes, that way the back will stay up more. We'll see.
Would be a lot more practical with a laptop, but still will work fine with the desktop. Alarm clocks, lamps, phone chargers and what not can be run as well. For a more permanent solar system, wires could be soldered and switches installed to make this a complete (not broken up) system, but this is more for fun/testing/backup than anything. Links are below:
Zack's first quad, lost orientation and went... really far away, really fast. I tried to recover it after he handed me the TX but could only plop it down in the forest. Turns out I got it on the only paved, open area in the forest right next to a cell tower.
A+ to Zack for plugging in the recovery buzzer on the KK2.0.... however... it really didn't help until we got pretty close, certainly needs to be louder in the forest. In any case, it worked, and we found it successfully after about 20 or so minutes of searching around.
A few common misunderstandings about FPV technology. If something doesn't sound quite right, keep watching, I probably explain it better further on. There are many things in this video that depend. FPV setups always depend so even the misunderstandings depend.
