Hi all, so I have a desire to attach a grappling hook http://awesomeforsale.com/dynamic-duo/ to the trident via a payload encased in this. https://www.otterbox.com/en-us/otterbox/drybox-3250-series/otr10-drybox-3250.html
The idea is to use an Adafruit ESPY8266 https://www.adafruit.com/product/3046 Feather and Wing https://www.adafruit.com/product/3046 to drive an electromagnet https://www.adafruit.com/product/3875 attached to the side of the enclosure. I am hopeing to use the ESPY8266 Wifi module to connect to the onboard Wifi, then build a simple webserver on the Feather to control the electromagnet to dynamically attach and detatch the grapplehook when I am over the target. I read in other posts, that the wifi signal under water can go to 10-15 cm. Is this true in the production trident? Also is the SSID and password for the wifi, the same as the TopSide buoy?
Thoughts on this approach? I am about to drop $100 on the project, and I just want a little assurance that this is NOT a non starter.
Thanks in advance,
