The Hornet II
This ROV was built in our senior design class by two students (Margaret Boshek and Mikhail Dembicki with the guidance of Graduate student Adam Kay). It is the revised version of the Hornet I. The 4 dc brushless motors are controlled with a joystick. It is deployable and operatable by one person with the power supplied by a car battery.
