Hi Gang, took my OpenROV (from kickstarter) for a spin on Sunday for the first time in about 9 months and she only ran for about 5 minutes before I lost connection.
Before today I’d never opened the housing or even remove the motor covers (still had the originals with the corrosion issue but had been getting by by squirting WD40 into them before and after each use. It’s really only done about 2 hours total flight time.
Today I cracked the case, and found this. Unfortunately she’s completely flooded and toast.
So if anyone needs spare parts I have 100m tether, the case, and remote as well as the tablet controller and hard case all up for grabs in Brisbane, Australia.
