I allways wanted to have a remote controlled submarine. Thanks to OpenROV I now have that chance.
I am a good builder but have very little knowledge in Arduino type systems - I leave that to my son.
Almost there! I have a problem getting the end caps of the battery tubes to seat properly. I can't get enough tension on the nylon straps. One side keeps limiting electrical contact and power to the electronics. I see one of the action photos with fish around that what looks like elastic bands have been used 90 degrees to the nylon straps to keep the end tubes fixed. I have checked wiring, clearances etc. and everything looks good inside the tubes (those springs are stiff!. Any suggestions?
On another point. I can't get the lasers to calibrate on the horizon bar on the screen, which I assume is the intent. I can modify the laser holes or fit some wedge on the camera chassis. Has this been a problem before? Incidentally I am thinking of calibrating the lasers to converge at about 2.0M so as to be used as a rangefinder, at least they will have more purpose.
Once they have, you'll be able to view a graph of their reputation gained over time.
Here's a preview of what the graph will look like:
