Welcome to my latest project. The ROV submarine.
Ever since fishing up in the North of Norway in my grandfathers new boat I have been wanting to make an ROV(Remotely Operated Vehicle) submarine to observe the seabed from the surface.
So,I researched for parts and prices, and using the info I found I sketched out my first design!
Check step 12+ to see how you can build a waterproof ROV lamp.
-PVC pipes and links
-Xm broadband internet cable(depends on how far and deep you want the sub to go.Note;the longer and thinner the cable, the more power is lost along it, also you should think about pressure resistance when choosing the lenght of the cable)
-Epoxy glue and epoxy putty
-motors x3(waterproof) I used water pumps
-12v battery or power supply(i used conventional AA batteries(10 of them) i know, its stupid but untill i can figure out another way of powering the sub it's going to have to do
-Camera housing parts (see pics)
-lots of zipties
-bolts for camera case (see pics)
-propellers (diam. about 2.5-3cm)
-thin plastic tube for motor shaft extension
-and anything else that i havent mentioned but is in the pictures
-and a few other easily obtainable tools
*some basic soldering, wiring and creative skills is required to make this:P
