Hi everyone. I'm new to ROV. Just finishing my build. I have an expensive aircraft part to recover from a high mountain lake i need to get done before freeze up so I am time limited. It fell off the aircraft on take off on floats. Value $40,000. Its too deep and too high for a diver. ROV is my only real viable option.
Most recently I installed the IMU and when we modified the code it basically killed the ROV. Battery indicator showed almost dead batteries even though they were fully charged, and nothing would work.
My buddy who helped with the code came by this past weekend and we backed the changes out of it and all is well. I still have a few minor bugs to work out, one thruster runs one direction only, and the camera freezes often, but at least its alive again with the IMU turned off.
I'm going to verify my connections to the IMU but I was careful to get them right when I installed them.
Since the IMU is potted I cant do anything with it. If its defective I may have to order a replacement.
Anybody have this problem before?
