I bought the Open ROV kit and followed the instructions. I am now almost ready to test in the water but I am constantly having connectivity issues. Sometimes the rov connects to my laptop and sometimes it doesn't. I think it might be a wiring issue but I am unsure.
Also the camera used to connect but lately (when the rov does connect) I am also having trouble seeing the video feed. The servo, light, forward, right and left buttons work. The backwards is not working either. I don't know how to find and solve the problem, can anyone help? How do I calibrate it? And troubleshoot? Does the fact that I'm using Windows 8 mean anything? I work with people who make land based robots and I know that for them, Windows 8 does not work.
