New to OpenROV?
I finally have some footage to show. :)
The Video is filmed at 90 frames per second, but played at 24 frames per second. so Slo-mo.
Skip ahead to 14:49 10 sec before the 2.6 endcap fails. The estimated depth is 147m! Nice!
The Next point skip to is 19:52. At 180m, the 1/2" endcap made from 2 x 1/4" disks fails 10 seconds from that point.(at 20:02) If you watch closely you will see the face seal being forced out just before the implosion.

Patrick shows off his tether reel belt clip he designed. Making it easier for the ROV to be operated by a single person.
His designs can be found here: http://openrov.com/forum/topics/a-reel-way-to-manage-your-tether
Few things I'm also planning to look at when I get my ROV.
Change ball bearings to ceramic, like these:
Water proofing motors.
Water leak alarm inside housing
Some kind of sonar:Continue
