Remote operated underwater vehicle

PVC hull, SLA batteries, Bilge Pumps, sounds like a good start to [Jimmy's] ROV project. Paintball gun (as a BCD), dual live cameras paired with an Arduino making it internet controlled, all tethered with a fiber optic cable, sounds like [Jimmy's] ROV got a whole lot more astounding.

While some very important parts have yet to be implemented, like the leak detectors, the project looks to be going quite smoothly. With updates promised, we can’t wait to watch this continue until the end.

  1. My dad just had rotator cuff surgery and loves to flounder gig. I need to talk to you, savior :)

  2. Fun project! Very well done as well. Using a paintball gun as a BCD is brilliance! I see that you phased it out but still cool idea. At first I didn’t understand how you were using it but after reviewing your p-notes I have to say; nice!

    Keep up the cool builds and submit more of your projects!

  3. Good luck with the water proofing. It’s WAY more complex that you can imagine. At least if you want to go deeper than a few meters.
