@sfields This looks like it is configured correctly. The extreme depth reporting is something I have not seen before.
Can you please turn on the ROV and tell me what the depth reads in air, then push on the pressure sensor opening firmly with your thumb and tell me what sort of range in depth readings you are able to see this way?
If you are still having issues and you have the chance, here are some steps to get a log file that I may use to diagnose your problem.
First, open QGC while the ROV is turned OFF, click the 'Q' icon at the top of the page, and under 'General Settings' make sure the option 'Prompt to save Flight Data Log after each flight' is checked. Make sure the option Prompt to save Flight Data Log even if vehicle was not armed is not checked.
Before you connect the ROV to the computer, make sure your ROV is positively buoyant so that it floats at the surface naturally.
After you have connected with QGroundControl, please perform the following steps in order. Please read these steps once or twice before you begin, so that you can execute them as closely as possible, without adding in extra input that I have not instructed. It is important to only arm/disarm once during the duration of the log. If you make a mistake, please disarm the ROV, close QGC, reopen QGC, and try again. A shorter log is easier to analyze.
- Arm the ROV in MANUAL mode.
- Dive the ROV to the bottom of the tank/pool, and continue to dive after you reach the bottom for about 5 seconds, so that the ROV is held against the bottom by the thrusters.
- Drive the ROV back to the top of the tank/pool, and continue to try to climb out of the water for about 5 seconds so that the ROV is trying to climb, but is stuck at the surface of the water.
- Let go of the joysticks, and put no input for about 5 seconds, allow the ROV to float at the surface of the water naturally.
- Switch to depth hold, and allow the ROV to malfunction as long as you can, or for about 10 seconds.
- Disarm the ROV.
- Close QGroundControl, and save the log file. Post the log here.
