I have an OpenROV 2.8
My starboard motor seems to be “sticker” than my port motor. Meaning my ROV likes to go in circles when driven forward.
When I try to turn the motors by hand the starboard motor seems to have more resistance than the port motor. I can flick the port motor and it spins some, but this does not happen with the starboard motor.
I had kind of notice it in my bathtub test that there was the tendency to turn in one direction – but I had put it down to not understanding the controls. When I put the ROV into open water, the tendency to turn was immediately apparent.
I couldn’t really tell on the resistance front (one motor not turning as easily by hand as the other) when I first checked, but having gone away for the holiday and come back, it now seems pretty obvious.
Is this likely a problem with the motor itself, or is there something that I might have tightened too much?
Thanks for your help
