I am having an issue that resembles this issue : http://openrov.com/xn/detail/6365107:Comment:93601
My controls lock up, and the motors keep running until the cockpit resets after a few seconds.
Where my situation differs, is that I am using the new batteries. So I don't have a circuit to trip.
I would like to try the fix any way, but my dashboard is not working properly. It says that the cockpit is stopped but it is running. Pressing start has no effect. It also says that cloud9 is stopped. Pressing start has no effect either.
I have the image installed on an SD card. Previously, I had it on board. I assume it is still there, but just over ridden by the SD card.
I had this issue before installing the new image (as of a few days ago) with one change, with the previous version, the video would freeze and not come back unless I stopped and started the cockpit with the dashboard or restarted. Now the video comes back when the cockpit resets. (hooray!)
Another issue I have is that the motors often have trouble starting up. Especially the vertical motor. Interestingly, immediately after booting up the vehicle, the vertical motor worked perfectly with the on screen controls. The keyboard controls were, as usual, problematic. After using the diagnostic tools to run each motor at 1 then 0 then -1, to get the controls to work better, the on screen controls worked as badly as the keyboard.
I do have an IMU depth sensor. And Lasers! Pew Pew!
Not sure if that matters.
The video shows what I am talking about. There is not much to watch after the first 1:30 sec. It is not terribly interesting before that either. :)
