I’ve built two OpenROV 2.8s in the past, and now I’m considering a BlueROVs. My goal is build something reliable enough to take into the field with students to collect water samples at specified depths. Ultimately, I’d like to use a large Niskin bottle to collect samples as big as four liters so we can check it for coliforms, microplastics or eDNA.
I’ve been reading some of the guides, trying to figure out what I’d need to start out. So far I think I’d need the following:
- BlueROV2 kit: (I’m thinking the one with four lights and a 150 m tether)
- The Advanced Electronics:Package with the Fathom-X Tether Interface
- The Spares kit:
- A Payload skid to carry a Niskin bottle
What else would you recommend getting? I’ve seen this thread about laptops where it mentions the Surface Pro, Samsung Notebook 9 Pro, Lenovo Miix 700, Which of those is the most popular for the BlueROV2 with Fathom X-tether?
