I’ve just finished my 2.8 build and done a first dive, which went very well and was very exciting.
Strangely, right from the beginning, the port motor is much “stiffer” than the starboard motor. By that, I mean it is more difficult to turn by hand, not friction, but almost as if it is more magnetised. It also starts and stops much quicker, the starboard motor freewheels longer.
If I go into diagnostics and manually set port and starboard motors to the same setting, perhaps 0.008 the starboard is turning much quicker.
I’m worried that it won’t be going forward or backward in a straight line, on the first dive it was difficult to tell.
The up/down motor seems to be as free as the starboard motor. Any ideas? Here’s a video clip of them running at 0.008
