Vigani modifications was perfect.

During the last trial runs the boat just flipped over by an wave and sunken, but with help from a friend i was able to rescue it. When it was rescued almost all the electronics was under sea and started to corrode. With lots of cleaning and soldering i was able to run it again. But with new motor, ESC, SD card and battery. So after that i modified the boat a lot and the final result was very successful.
Earlier the propeller was bit high and it don't cut enough water. Now the shaft and everything is lowed around 1 half inch. New brushless motor and ESC was tested for two weeks for speed controlling and finally a bit more water proofing. Old shaft coupler removed and made my own coupler for shaft and motor. Most of the firmware also cleaned up ;)
After all these modifications i finally did a wonderful trial run. :) Early morning checked the tide table and it was perfect for test so packed everything and went to testing area.


















Today i have done continuous for runs and it was perfect.…

Helpfull software for designing encoders.

I design my wheel encoders in coreldraw and it takes time to do the design. But recently found a better solution for that. A small software called wheel encoder generator which helps you to design different types of encoders in few seconds. I hope this will be a helpful tip for those who whats to make there own optical wheel encoders.
