I am finalizing the design for my autonomous ocean drone for the Microtransat Challenge, a contest to see if your drone can cross the Atlantic ocean.
My design calls for 2 - T200 thrusters … not for steering, but one as the back up to the other. In your opinion, do you think I would be better switching between the two regularly, or only switching if the first one fails (great product, but we are talking about running non-stop for 3 months). If it is better to switch, at what interval would do you think (i.e. hourly, 24 hrs, etc.)?
Thanks in advance!
