Position hold and joystick operation

Given the ROV is equipped with a waterlinked DVL and is operating in position hold mode. If I use a joystick to give a manual command (for instance straight forward) would the ROV hold the setpoints for the other axes (attitude and depth etc.) during the joystick command and then set a new position setpoint when released ?

hi @arend,

That is correct. Keep in mind that this is still somewhat experimental. If you use it, please report any unexpected behaviors, and share logs if possible.

Thanks for the replay @williangalvani,

Will the same happen if i send a MANUAL_CONTROL command to emulate a joystick command for example only on x axis via a script or SET_ATTITUDE_TARGET to change depth via a script ?
