HI HERE YOU CAN FIND A VIDEO OF THE FINAL RESULT OF THE PROJECT!


BILL OF MATERIALS THAT YOU NEED

1) SUP (STAND UP PADDLE) with removable fins.

2) ONE NOZZLE ROV THRUSTER you can find it at www.rovthruster.com

3) One electric motor hexTronik DT750 or DT700 or Volantex 4023 Brushless Motor 850 (for this last motor you will have to add a spacer under the foot of the motor to increase the highness of about 5mm)

4) ESC for the motor (better if with forward and reverse function) I used this https://hobbyking.com/it_it/hobbykingr-tm-brushles...

5) I suggest to buy also the programmer for this ESC, it's cheap and it will let you set some precious parameters easily (safety cut off voltage near 9V for Li-ion, run mode mode 2, reverse force 100% and neutral range 10%) https://hobbyking.com/it_it/hobbykingr-tm-programm...

6) Arduino board to control the ESC, I used the arduino Uno version, you can use whatever you prefer.

7) 10Kohm linear rail resistance, you can use any kind of potentiometers (this will pilot forward and reverse) I used this https://www.ebay.it/itm/BOURNS-PTB0143-2010BP-B103...

8) Battery. Example 12V 70Ah Li-ion but you can choose any 12V battery with enough capacity for your needs. Pay attention to max consumption current it should be at least 15A but better 20A and above.

9) Cables and connectors. Use thick wires for ESC to motor connection suitable to carry about 10 to 20A, XT60 conectors are ok.

10) Ice chest to contain battery, arduino board and ESC. Yes the one that you use on the beach for preserve drink coolness IS PERFECT :)

11) (OPTIONAL) Volt/Ampere meter This will give you information about voltage status of the battery and current consumption of the entire system. For example my battery can generate a maximum of 25Ampere.I used this https://www.ebay.it/itm/Voltmetro-amperometro-100...

Step 1: BATTERY CONNECTION

Picture of BATTERY CONNECTION

1) The battery is connected only to the ESC red (+12V) and black (GND) THICK wires, don't connect arduino with the battery.

Looks like a fun project! Do you have a video of it?

Hi, i have uploaded the video of the final result :)
Haha! That's awesome :)

Hi Penolopy, as of now i have only the video of the system check on the table where i show the test for forward and reverse mode for the brushless motor. As soon as i can i will also add the full video of the system on the water.
