Well I’ve been lurking the forums here for a few months as I slowly begin piecing together my own DIY ROV. I decided to try and build my own as a learning experience and am attempting to build it from the ground up myself. It’s a slow process due to time and my limited experience but I absolutely love it so far. My end goal is a vectored thruster setup (6 thrusters total). I have two of the T100s so far and will add the others as funds permit.
My main focus thus far has been to work out the electronics and software for an analog joystick-control setup. This weekend I finally have what seems to be a functioning setup (according to my Oscilloscope and two “test” thrusters). Right now its a single joystick but I have my concerns about the ease of use with a single joystick and may go with two of them if real-world testing confirms this. Video streaming will also be a great learning process as I don’t have much experience with serial protocols (which will probably be my next step.) Anyway glad to have a place like this see other like-minded folks having fun with ROVs.
