ROV robot sub underwater video robot plans
This is a really exciting thing to do. Build your own remotely operated underwater vehicle! R.O.V. You will see them on the TV every day especially on the discovery channels. Inspecting wrecks, finding treasure, watching marine life etc, and of course the Gulf oil spill recently. These are plans for an “eyeball” type r.o.v. To buy a small micro r.o.v. like this one will cost you around £20,000 pounds, I can show you how to make one for about £200!
What is an ROV?
An rov is a remotely controlled robot camera. Once you have launched your rov you will sit in front of a tv screen on your boat or from the back of your van for instance and fly your rov from the surface. You have a hand controller to steer and dive the sub and it feels like you are underwater yourself! And you do fly it! In three dimensions up / down / left / right etc. It is a bit like flying a helicopter underwater. I use an old v.c.r. to record my dives but a d.v.r is not expensive now. It is great fun and you will get smitten by it! Also it is a very important industry and you may end up in a very lucrative career!
A great project for dads & kids
This is a great project for dads & kids to do together, a work colleage of mine is using it for a school project in South Africa ! One of these would be great for inspecting dive sites first so you don’t burn yourself out when there is nothing to see!
I have had lots of great feedback so far (see the testirmonials) and will continue to develop this idea. We hope design some new accessories soon to add on and will be very interested in feedback from our customers.
See the sub in action on YouTube™ (see above right)!!
About Ian Leverington
I have been a commercial diver and r.o.v. pilot for over 20 years and can see there are a lot of people who would love to own and fly one of these. This is your chance! I have designed it to be very simple to construct with parts you can buy in your local town. Basically the plumbing dept at the local d.i.y. superstore and radio control model shops. You do not have to be a “boffin” to do it, if you have basic d.i.y. skills and a very basic tool kit you can do this. The hull itself is made from p.v.c. pipe and glue! I give all the information on where to buy the components in the plans.
I originally built this one for my own amusment and to inspect boat hulls/propellors etc, but after a friend suggested I take it to the local model boating lake I was swamped with interest. Loads of people wanting to know where to get one, or how they could make one. Order the plans now and you will have them in a few minuites!
Any questions then please contact me and I will answer as soon as I can. I am often offshore working and do not have internet access but I will always endeavour to answer promptly.
THIS HAS GOT TO BE THE ULTIMATE BOY’S TOY!!
HIGH END CUTTING EDGE TECHNOLOGY FOR THE MASSES!! GENIUS!!
