DPV----Possible?


(Tom-Vidar Salangli) #1

Hi everyone

I wonder if… would the T200 have enough thrust to drive a DPV(Diver propulsion vehicle)?
I’m thinking on lets say four thrusters in the back (forward) and two in the front for vertical?

Something like this:

Hi Tom,

As far as I know, most handheld DPVs have 40-60 lb of thrust. The full size vehicle you linked to has quite a bit more. I think it could be done with T200s, but it probably wouldn’t be very fast. If you just want to cruise around at normal scuba diving speeds, that might be fine!
