Preparation Stage

Unfortunately i did not make it to the lake last sunday. I had to fight some major technical problems with the ROV. By Sunday night 23 pm i had fixed everything.

The little one now has lasers mounted, brand new software and problems with power supply fixed.

I plan to explore the lake very soon though - meanwhile i give you some impressions on what i did up to now.


Great to hear you got it fixed up! Excited to see the lake video. Make sure to get a recording using screencastify!

Jep, i installed screencastify at the weekend - i even made some video footage from a short dive in my companies pool. I am preparing it for the upload currently. I hope you'll find it here tomorrow.

Hey Tobias, did everything work out in the end?
Keep us posted for updates!

Expedition Background

Waller Feldmarksee is a little lake nearby. I have choosen it as the location for my first fielddive in order to make further testing.

Looking forward to seeing video!

This is great! I'm dying to see underwater in a lake in Germany. Have any pictures yet?
