Seafox Thruster

I made a few modification to the thruster design, first I went with 6 Rule 1100 GPH Bilge Pumps over the smaller 500's listed in the book. And with the configuration listed in the book it moved ok along the 4 axis (Forward, Reverse, Left and Right) but lacked the ability to turn or spin in place very well so I played around with the configuration and came up with a better placement for the thrusters listed in the diagram below. With the ability now to spin in place I didn't feel the need to incorporate Pan into the camera either.

With this new Thruster Configuration the Rov now has the ability to rotate in place. Control is the same but now the Rov is pulled forward through water with the front thrusters insted of being pushed forward with the rear thrusters.
