David Murphy Thanks!

I have been wondering, did you use 3 or 4 ESC's on you ROV? You have 2 vertical thrusters yes?

You need to use two ESC's, if you try to run two motors from one ESC the ESC gets confused because it gets feedback from the motors, and I just use the one controller Vertical connector with a Y cable connector to the two ESC's
