Have a Q-Boat from OCEANSCIENCE with Trimble GPS & SonarLite SONAR from OHMEX controlled by FUTABA 7CAP transmitter, FUTABA FP-R1380P 8 Channel Receiver (4 are used) & Roboteq AX1500 Digital Motor Controller. The boat has 2 screws & a rudder; used to profile the buildup of mud & silt on the bottoms of some very large settling ponds and grit basins. An autopilot would be very handy to guide the boat in a pre-programmed grid to obtain repeatable position data which is stored on-board in a Brookhouse NMEA 0183 Data Logger.
