David,

This looks great! I can't wait to see the first photos of her in the water! Let us know if there is anything else you could use help with (I know there are still some bits missing from the build instructions).

Keep it up!

Eric

Just waiting on batteries to show up now.

Can I install previous software versions to run it on?

Cheers,

The older software should be able to bring up Cockpit with a video feed but control of the ROV won't work. We have some beta software that I could send you, but the more stable version (which also has a lot more capabilities) should be out very soon. We'll keep you posted.
