Gamepad to controll the ROV


#1

Is it possible now to use e.g Xbox 360 wireless gamepad to controll the ROV?

or wired one's?

other options?
Is there an instruction on how to set up a gampad?

The gamepad API is actually using the browsers gamepad detection in HTML5. I've tried the wired xbox controller and it works.

If you can get it to showup using http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/doodles/gamepad/gamepad-tester/tester.html then it should work with the ROV.

I've been using the Logitech F310, with mixed results... The ascend/descend controls are out of whack. I've programmed and calibrated the ESC's a number of times, and still when I push the ascend stick I only get about 65-70% of the thrust I should get but it descends at 100% like it should. Turn to port works great, but when I turn to starboard, It seems to be in turbo boost mode and whips around quickly. I would certainly appreciate any input on this topic or advice on how to fix my problems with the game pad. I'm also having problems with the motors sticking in a full on position when I use the keyboard trim controls.

My controls work right according to the gamepad test, but as described above they are still a little out of whack. I've calibrated my ESC's a number of times, and still get the same results. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated!
