Pitch control not working

Hello all,

I’m trying to get a new BlueROV2 working but the vehicle doesn’t seem to respond to commands to adjust pitch at all. It doesn’t matter if the commands are mapped to buttons or sent via the sticks after toggling on roll/pitch control. Based on the logs from a pool test, it looks like the vehicle is actually receiving the commands since ATT.DesPitch is changing, it’s just not acting on them:

Interestingly, roll works as expected.

Any thoughts about what could be going on?

Thanks!

Dan

Hi @dlewis, welcome to the forum :slight_smile:

Do you have the heavy configuration, or a standard BlueROV2? The standard configuration has no thrusters positioned with a pitch component, so it has no pitch control.

Haha, that would be the reason. Thanks!
