Where to start?


I just joined OPENROV and I am really interested in trying to build my own ROV but I don't know where to start. I have a few bits and pieces that I have collected that might be useful such as a very small camera that I have salvaged from a broken mobile phone (but can't find pinouts for) but no waterproof motors or idea of what to do. Can anyone help? Thanks either way.

Thank you very much!

I shall have a look on the links to make a start


The links to other projects page and then homebuilt Rovs How To seems to have a lot of info on how to fit a lot of the hardware.
