Part 3 of 1st dive
These dives were mostly test dives to try things like depth hold, fly by wire seeing how the tether would behave with the 1/4' yellow propylene rope etc.
I really like using the heavier rope that protects the tether that is in the center of it. This may be more problematic in waters with a current but for lake diving it worked really well.
Did a night dive to 80ft. I had lost my main lights on the ROV after putting the electronics back in after the 288ft. test dive. I connected up the LED Driver to the vertical motor by accident and blew it when I turned on the Lights. I was now only left with one LED lighting panel under the ROV which did not light up the bottom of the lake enough to see properly.
I will be visiting with family for a week in cottages on Little Hawk Lake this summer. This will be a great time for me to play with the ROV and have fun with the grandchildren as we explore the lake. Time permitting I would also like to make a trip to Tobermory, ON. Here the water is crystal clear and there is a ship to explore
