I am in the final stages of my custom built ROV. Unfortunately, I have left the software part for the end because I am much more comfortable with the physical construction portion.
I started this journey naively thinking I could build the entire thing. I have stand alone depth, temperature, IMU, and ADC parts to custom build sensors for a HUD.
Like they always do, my project stalled due to a feeling of being overwhelmed. I decided to forego the electronics part of the build and started looking at autopilots. I couldn’t find any good source of Pixhawk that wasn’t a copy. I read bad things about some of them. I settled on a PXFmini, and I had it connected through QGC. It was giving me fits because the firmware was way out of date.
I flashed a different SD card with the BlueRobotics firmware, and I love what you are doing with the browser based updates! Please let me know if there is an easy way to put the stable version of the PXFmini firmware onboard. I would happily settle for a hard way, as long as the instructions are moderately clear.
If I can get this thing running, I will be posting pictures and information about the build and dives!
