Information about ROV shiping and features

hello . i hope im posting in the right place

I'm really interested in buying your product .. its really cool because its totally designed differently comparing to other ROVs .. but unfortunately your website doesn't mentions more details about the product so i need to ask some questions

1. I live in dubai so can you ship it here?

2. How do you control the ROV? Remote Control?

3.We have some rules which might not allow us to buy if you are using transmitter and receiver, what would be the frequency of it? 75, 900mhz..etc not allowed in dubai so what frequency do you use and what is the range for it?

3. I found that it goes up to 100 meter .. i dont need it that much (only 20m under sea salt water) so, the increase in pressure under the water doesnt effect the structure so that it could damage it? or you have an inner system for that?

4. battery type and life?

5. is there any video to know the electric parts and how to assemble it after buying the product?

waiting for your reply .. thank you so much

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hello Mr.Ali

I stay in sharjah i already have this product and i dont have any problems in getting here across UAE because it comes as parts it doesnt come as an unit

i had 2 to 3 transactions with Open ROV the system is great for the people who want to learn underwater robotics

ROV is controlled through normal laptop and you need an browser to control the ROV

its very simple and quick

the system is equipped with acrylic parts that takes the pressure and i have tested the system at 50m water and little slack current in subsea water still it works

Video there has been up-gradation happening in open rov i used USB camera supplied along with the system

You can find additional information on the product page on our website.

1) Yes we can ship to Dubai.

2) It is controlled by a computer on the surface. You can use a gamepad controller connected to your computer or keyboard commands.

3) It is tethered and not wireless so you should be fine.

4) The ROV can travel to a depth of 100m safely so 20m should not be an issue.

5) We recommend theLiFePO4 batteries that we sell on our website. This will give you a run time of 2-3 hours depending on use.

6) We have step by step build guides.

Please let us know if you have additional questions.
