As I’m now back from holiday I’ll post a few updates.
The Hull Build
I’ve now continued the strip planking with the Balsa Wood for the hull, I’ve added some new pics on the forum thread. I’ll continue getting this done in the spare time I have. The build thread can be found here.
GPS Hardware Selection
We’ve decided to use the Ublox NEOO-6M GPS unit as it has a really good low power mode which consumes just 11mA whilst tracking. I’ve gone and ordered it from unmannedtechshop.co.uk at £27.50 + delivery. I’ll post up some pictures when it arrives.
World Robotic Sailing Championships 2012
The WRSC 2012 took place whilst I was away, this years event had a good turn out with some exciting sailing boats. It’s well worth checking out there website with pics and videos of all the activities. The website can be found here.
The FishPi POCV is nearing completion (hardware side of things) and received a lick of paint, it was also on show at the Bournville Model Yacht and Powerboat Club. Check out the FishPi forums for pictures of the event here.
