A half dozen people have sent me this link to the robotic sea turtle designed by the Tallinn Institute of Technology. Looks interesting.

Hi Dominic:

While fins hydrodynamic performance can be higher than that of propellers, manouverabilty may be a difficult problem to solve from the hardware and the software points of view.

That looks awesome! 
Can we have some fins for OpenROV too? :)

I've always been interested on biological propulsion arrangements, I like this turtle a lot.

I find fins propulsion a lot more interesting than propellers.

Thanks for the post.

Regards
