ROV in Action

Hey ,

those who have already build ROV send video of action in water.
I only found pictures from your garages, but this is not the place where ROV should be

Also small Questionnaire:

What is ( or intend to be ) depth rating of your ROV ?

For my ROV I have calculation to max 300 meters

regards,
joe

Hi Leonard,
Thank you for sharing underwater video with us.


My question is, why you put weight each time you submerse the ROV.

regards,
Joze

The main ballast is 1" round steel bar at the bottom of the ROV, two 7" sections which I do not remove. The weights at the top are for fine tuning the balance and neutral buoyancy in both fresh and salt water. I use big flat washers at the top because it's easy access and takes seconds to place the washers over the bolts - one on each corner. Gravity holds the washers in place, they are not secured.
