Observations

Feedback on Coral Reef Mapping Robot, “Delta Force”

Negative

Hard to deploy, so large
Head too heavy, more buoyancy required at the front, especially if we add more battery
Fin can be smaller
one engines is too high (bubbling)
Next time, we measure voltage before and after and perhaps try to estimate the autonomy
Branding, stickers!
Earlier, so we’re not rushed by the sunset
Mosquito spray, swim attire, 🍹

Positive

More stable
Thrusters are awesome
Easier to drive
U-turn, 360
Pack quite small
