This has been a busy week for me since my BlueROV2 chassis components arrived on Dec 7th.
Upon receipt of the chassis components I proceeded to assemble the basic frame which also included the installation of the Battery WTC by following these instructions.

I then tackled the assembly of the Electronics Tray using the same instructions as above, but not before I had actually assembled the Electronics Tray Frame using these instructions.

The assembly of the Electronics Tray consists of attaching the RPi, the Pixhawk, the 3DR Power Module, and the Fathom-X Interface to the Electronics Tray Frame and then adding interconnecting cables and BECs.

Because I am using the BlueESC thrusters, my Electronics Tray does not include the six thruster ESCs seen in the Port and Starboard Side pictures above.
Tomorrow I plan to move all six BlueESC thrusters from the home brew chassis to the BlueROV2 Frame to see how much excess cable I have to deal with and how the two cables from each thruster will be routed. I have already modified the BlueESC thruster control cables to mate with the Pixhawk Servo Output Bus connectors so my main efforts will be directed towards setting up the BlueESC thruster power cables in order to attach them to the external Power Distribution Board.
More to come.
