Reversing the machine

(Nitesh Singh) #1

If counter clockwise propellars are rotated in opposite direction, will it help us to move our machine in backward direction?
All i want to achieve is with the help of bidirectional esc and without changing the propellars i want the machine to be capable of both forward and reverse operation considering the fact that in reverse mode i will get less thrust.
Please help me out here.

Yes, they work fine in reverse. You can still get 85% of the forward thrust if reversing at 12 V, for example (3.0 kgf vs 3.55 kgf).
Our ROVs operate the thrusters in both directions to maneuver, by design.
