Blue ROV 2 control question

I have a question regarding how the blue rov2 is controlled.

With 6 thrusters
2 angled front
2 vertical top
2 angled back

I can see all strafe control is available
Up, down, left, right, forward, backward.

With tilt controll it looks like you would have
Turn left and right
Roll left and right

But it doesn’t look like it would be able to pitch up and down.

Is this correct or am I missing something?

Hi @JeffreyBuilds, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Correct, the standard configuration of the BlueROV2 does not have pitch control. That said, there is a camera tilt servo, so it’s still possible to “look” up and down to some extent, but the vehicle itself cannot perform pitching manoeuvres.

Can the heavy lift version tilt? It should be able to with 4 vertical motors

EDIT: Just saw the specs very nice so the heavy lifting version can.
