SeaQuest Episode 5: Fire in the hole!


In the fifth episode of the SeaQuest adventure

The Team head over to the Mid Thames Model Boat Club at Beale Park in Reading UK to test the performance of the latest prototypes on the lake. They encounter a few issues with the self righting of the boat and also discover that the Engine Control Units get very hot...can anyone smell smoke?! The Team also test out the autonomous navigation by sending it to waypoints across the lake, and discuss what changes need to be made to the motors and battery technologies used.
