I am using the BlueROV2 with the advanced electronics package and had a successful first dive in “Manual” mode, but am having an issue with both the “Stabilize” and" Depth Hold" flight modes. Every time I switch to either of these the ROV immediately starts a tight counter-clockwise spin.
I found a forum post (BROV2 1st Dive Test: Control Issues) that I thought would fix the issue (as I had similarly reversed the vertical thrusters to joystick forward= descend), but after switching it back to the default I am still having the same response of a CCW spin.
Finally, we trialed physically holding the ROV in these two modes to feel the movement. It appears to be autocorrecting to the opposite direction it should once it gets off heading. In “Stabilize” mode, rotating it off heading to the left causes increased propulsion to the left (when it should autocorrect right). In “Depth Hold” mode there’s the same issue , but also the vertical response appears opposite (pushing the ROV down results in further downward propulsion).
Has anyone encountered this issue or have any insight? Thanks in advance for the help.
