…looks ok… but why the cantral joystic? …never seen or tryed before…and i guess its a reason… in the end… where do you assign theese things?..do you miss a lot in this system?.. count and look into the system…???
4 axis?..how do they work?
That controller was designed to be used with our ROVsim2 O&G simulator. The central 3 axis joystick is for horizontal thruster control and the vertical dial on the bottom left is for vertical thruster control. The two smaller joysticks are to control the 2 manipulators. The small dials are for light and thruster gain.
…no worries, just thought i missed an axis… 3 ok… 4 i would like to know;) …in(a knob on the side?, maby look to …hmmm not the Supporter, HD, Merlin, Millenium work klass f15 stick… im my expirience… not good for small ROV (your vertical is really misplaced, after 3 hrs your hand is Sleeping… where is the handsupport?
…on the right side you got two knobs?.. when you do a counterclock movement on the joystick…for the 50 time… will they touch?..not critisim… just practical advice
The “Mark 2” SCU was from about 10 years ago (we’ve been doing this for a long time!). Although we’ve never had a single complaint, it did fit a lot of functionality into a very small space. To the right of the main joystick are two momentary push buttons (for vertical / heading hold, etc.). We stopped selling them a long time ago. The new Mark 4 is a much simpler design and is my personal favorite of all those I’ve used.
Are you producing your Surface Controller for resale? You mentioned $1000 US for sale price. I would have interest at that price point.
you can visit my website: http://www.deltarov.com/new/product-category/bluerov2-upgrades/
I also have other versions I can do if you want to give me your email address.
…finally some time for som progress😅… this is the setup i found best at the moment☠️… not perfect but will do what i want;)
Tnx;)…have made it so i have tilt for cam on 3 axis joystick… and pitch/roll in front joystick… Grabber on the other joystick… ROV is about using as much fingers and control as much as Possible … … the knods…for different modes… the rest for fun… got to much nobs now😂
…and when i hooked all up… my leo bodnar board wont connect to Qgc … my PC register i,t but Qgc dont?..any suggestions?
…my didint come up?..all others come up but not my Leo bodnar?..any tips?
Does the Leo Bodnar board appear in the drop down list of joystick controllers on the QGC Joystick Calibration page?
I assume that you have used the Windows 10 Game Controller Setup to calibrate the Leo Bodnar board and verify its functionality?
No it doesnt appear any joystick when i connect that, it shows when i use my logitech?Yes its all in ordher in the pc?..in gamecontrollers and all… but it dont show in QGC?
I have messaged Paul Unterweiser to see why you are having an issue with the controller.
Yes, I’ve been following this thread…
Off the top of my head I have no idea why you’d have this issue, could be:
- a faulty cable
- a defective bodnar device
- a windows issue
- a QGC issue
Etc, etc. I know that we haven’t had any issues using the Bodnar devices with our simulators, and we’ve been using them almost from the beginning (12+ years). I have less experience using them with BlueROV2 ROV’s but haven’t had any issues there either (although I don’t know if we’ve used the latest Ardusub / QGC software with it yet). I do know that, depending on the version / update, we have had problems with other controllers with QGC (the Logitech Extreme 3D and F310). I would not consider QGC or Ardusub “gold standards” for software reliability by any means… I would test your device with other softwares that use joystick input and see what happens. If it works with other software and not QGC, I think you’ve found your issue.
Hope this helps.
tnx…what software feks?.. i dont game or anything? this is all i have;D
