I am trying to get my OpenROV neutrally bouyant in water. I have tried small pill bottles wire tied to the side and pieces of wood screwed on the top. Check out the picture. It is a little heavy and I have to keep the vertical thruster on to keep it up. I hate to waste the power keeping the motor on. Any ideas on what to use for "floats"?
Tonight I changed the impellers. I think these work better then the ones in the parts list. The unit jumps out of the water at full power and you need very little movement on the joystick to get the unit to move. I think we need to be able to limit full power, because we have more than we need. I am still having trouble with the unit losing the connection when the battery voltage drops too low. Do you think you could limit the upper range of power by only using 50 percent of the range when you setup the ESC's.?
