VESC for Diver Propulsion Vehicle?

DPVs (commonly called 'scooters') are underwater vehicles designed for moving scuba divers through the water. Does anyone know any forks of the VESC project that aim to support DPVs?

 

For the uninitiated, modern DPVs have a waterproof fuesalage paired with a BLDC motor attached to a propeller and powered by a battery pack. Interfaces and throttle controls tend to be very rudimentary to avoid the complexity of underwater electronics and failure modes.

 

Thanks,

Badwiz.

There are DVPs with VESC drivers on the market.

Sure, but whatever firmware they use is not open source.
