My name is Rusty and I'm from Blue Robotics. We first posted our thrusters on DIYDrones back in 2014 - we've come a long way since then making lots of components to make marine robotics easier and more accessible. Most recently we've been working on ArduSub, based on ArduCopter, which has turned into a fully-featured autopilot system for subsea vehicles. The work done by the DIYDrones and ArduPilot communities is incredible and we are grateful for it.

Today we're back on Kickstarter with a fun project for Kickstarter's "Make/100" Initiative: A completely clear version of our T200 Thruster! It will make your next (or first) underwater project unique and is a cool learning tool as well. The campaign is limited to just 100 backers.

Along with the campaign, we're donating 50 thrusters to the MATE Center to be given to middle-school and high-school robotics teams in need of funding.
The campaign ends January 31st and we hope you'll consider backing us!
