OpenROV Flight Demo


#1

Eric was showing off the fine motor control of the OpenROV in the lab. In particular, how a joystick can be used for very small movements. He also opened it up at the end. This is still on throttle setting 2 (of 5), so top speed is much faster.


#2

Here's a video I dug up of us testing the ROV earlier that day a throttle setting 3.. or perhaps 4.. I can't quite remember.. but anyway, what fun!

I love those new props it looks like they give much more thrust to the ROV. I was looking to order some and wanted to know where you bought them. Has there been any issues with them spinning off in reverse as I think they screw onto the shaft.

I just noticed on the initial test video that there is a thread ongoing talking about this so I will do my posts there on this topic.
