RC Test Flight's Box Boat

Here’s a fun and informative video from RCTestFlight (aka @Daniel_Riley) showing an autonomous boat made from a couple of Tupperware boxes.

It’s all good fun but there’s also some educational bits on tuning such a slow vehicle (the speed controller struggles a bit because boat’s low speed is down close to the noise from GPS error) and also it highlights the old seaweed-in-the-prop issue that I’ve also hit a few times. Perhaps in the future we can use ESCs with feedback to come up with an automatic solution to try and clear weeds from the props (issue here).

Anyway, thanks to RCTestFlight for another great video involving ArduPilot!


Daniel’s videos are always a blast!
