In this post series I will explain the making of a radio-controlled submarine. I will go through the design, the building process, Python code, tests in water, and all the mistakes I made. Lots of images included along the way.
This will be the fourth submarine I’ve built. I’m not an expert in submarines, just a hobbyist who builds all kinds of machines and shares the projects in a YouTube channel called the Brick Experiment Channel. The channel is dedicated to Lego Technic, so this submarine will also utilize Lego parts as much as possible.
