We finished the build of our ROV few weeks ago, but have been having problems.
After build, I had updated the BBB and then in turn the Arduino fw with package 22.214.171.124.448f366
Also followed the post-build checklist and re-ran the ESC calibration routine several times.
When I start up the ROV I find that my vertical thruster only works in down mode.
My Port thruster also refused to engage in forward mode.
I had initially thought this was an electrical short issue, though I found nothing. I’ve resoldered my rs232/db25 and now sealed in liquid electrical tape. I don’t see any other sources of potential shorts.
Here is the interesting thing I am noticing:Usually if I toggle fly-by-wire setting, everything seems to work for awhile until I lose camera feed. Also the camera feed does not return even after restarting the cockpit service. Seems I need to to a full reboot to get everything working again.
Any thoughts or guidance…??
