Hope you get the controller / game pad up and running so at least you have a functioning ROV again.
2.x is community now. Interesting to see where Sofar are taking things with the recent launch of the ASV (Strider), joining the weather data buoy (Spotter) as well as Trident. Forms a neat network of assets complete with remote access. It would be good if some of the sensors and other addons mentioned for Strider (and I assume will be used Trident) could be utilised on 2.x.
I liked the modular architecture and potential for repurposing that the 2.x boards and ROV’s offered and this is what sold me on OpenRov along with its size. At least the schematics, BOM and other files are available, as well as sw code, given no spares are available via Sofar / OpenROV, as I have a CB out of action following taking some damage by water:frowning: The 5v/3v supply was gone but components replaced on board and that part is working but the Mega / Arduino is dead when probing from the connected and working BB: no ESC supply opened or 3.3v to instruments, so next job is lifting and replacing the Mega and may be the shifter (U7), so fingers crossed that can be done. Have not read that anyone else has done that type of repair. Still nothing to loose.
My ESC’s are ok but I also had 2 motors to change.
Given this recent experience perhaps time for me to get some PCB’s for the CB and IMU made and build myself spares for the future and may be try a build with a 4th thruster as well !
