    I'm enormously impressed with your ability to find parts that fit together with minimal modification.

    Refined Design: I would say remove the steal pellets, and replace them with more batteries and for sure more powerful thruster engines :)

    You should make an emergency surface system, where if the Internal pressure reaches X, the syringes start to quickly empty.

    Had so much fun working on this challenge! Can’t wait for our next collab and to release my video showing my ROV finally working perfectly! 😃

    "Without calculation"? That was hilarious. This project required an amazing level of deep insight as well as an enormous breadth of comprehension of physics, electronics, and mechanics. I learned a lot from this great video. Thank you for your insane curiosity and passion for experimentation. :D

    This can be used for small scale ecological projects to monitor aquatic flora and fauna in a non-invasive manner! Excellent job!

    One thing you will have to contend with is, that once you begin to descend the water pressure will compress the shell causing the internal pressure to increase causing the buoyancy to over react. The sub will descend faster as the water pressure continues to increase. As you showed in the first part of this video, increased internal pressure causes decent.This causes a runaway feed back. Using dive planes will lesson this effect but still you will have to continually correct your neutral buoyancy. You could use an ARDUINO to sense internal pressure and automatically compensate.

    I love how he explains the reasons behind selecting a particular component.

    Is there some submarine build fad going on that I don't know about? Always love the clever engineering of this channel.

    This so appealed to the kid in me. Back in the day, I would have killed to have something like this to go exploring the ponds and streams where I lived. I especially liked that it was all stuff you could get from local suppliers with little modification. Thanks for sharing this.

    Love this mans videos. Has a real knack for this. He’s well spoken, clear and concise, straight to the point, well knowledged. You can tell he really enjoys what he does. And the best part? He does sponsorships with company’s that provide fun and exciting educational experiences for our future generations

    This was absolutely wild. Id love to see more upgrades, i think the jets could have 3d printed nozzles to improve speed. I do reallly like james's implemenation with outrigger nacelles and propelloers. seemed extremely quick
