A week of skiing on the alps with divers friends, and you end-up diving when it's - 16°C outside and 2°C underwater...
Before to put my head under the ice, I decided to send my OpenROV 2.5 to explore the area for it's dive #11.
I had few problems during the dive:
-My flight stick (Cyborg-X) that I use normaly to pilot the ROV was completely frozen and could not be used, I've then used the keyboard, but Controls are not as smooth as it's with the stick.
-After 10 minutes of piloting without gloves at -16°C, my fingers came frozen ! I had to stop the ROV dive to warm-up before my scuba-dive !
When I came up to surface, I had about 1 cm of water inside the tube, due to an air purge screw (installed instead of the syringe) that wasn't tight enought, but no dammage to the electronics.
