ROV submersible (PVC)
Nothing so complicated as that. He just uses a switchbox on the surface with one switch per motor. (See step 9) Another way to do it is shown on the home brew ROV website http://www.homebuiltrovs.com/seafox.htmlwhere it shows how to use some old video game joy sticks. I made a Seafox a number of years ago and added a cheapie B&W video camera. I built the whole thing for under $100. See pic.
Hey!Please explain how are you controlling the motors, arduino or something?I used a 20m LAN cable and an extension for the web camera but my laptop is not able to power the webcam because of the long 20m LAN cable. Can you please suggest something regarding the live feed of the camera?

The particular battery seen in this instructible is commonly found in many desktop computer battery backups (UPS). The batteries can be had online for around $13.00 and you can use an old backup to charge them. Or as someone pointed out, you can buy a charger online. All you really need (very basic sense) is 12 volt output at around 1 or 2 amps. So you could even build it. Beware though, building a very basic charger will not prevent overcharging.
