Hi, since I’m using several BR parts I figured I post my build here.
So my main purpose of building an Rov, besides the fact it’s fun to drive around underwater and look at stuff, is I would like to get professional quality video of offshore pelagic species like marlin and tuna and I have no desire to dive in the open ocean lol, so I decided to build an Rov.
The hull is 6" acrylic with the BR 6" series flanges
I’m using 4 T200 and 2 Lumen lights which are all controlled using a RC Tx and Rx via DSC
Now for the cameras, I have 1 SD camera connected topside over a twisted pair. I have this camera connected to an dragon osd board with a compass. I will be using this one mainly for the compass.
The 2nd camera I have onboard is a Canon xf400 which can record up to 4k 60fps and live stream 1080 thru a browser remote, which also gives me full manual control, via a ethernet connection. I’m using a pair of fathom x boards for the ethernet connection.
Everything onboard, except the xf400, is powered by a BR battery. And I’m using a 100m BR tether with a Subconn 8pin connector so I can remove the tether
Everything has been tested and working good, just have to finish getting it neutral or slightly positive buoyant. Hopefully I’ll have it done in the next day or so, I’ll post some vid as soon as I get it done
