Title:

Upgrade 2.7 to 2.8

Text:

I now have a 2.7 OpenROV and while ordering the IMU-module i also ordered a main tube, battery tube, endcaps for 2.8 as i imagine that these would possibly fit snugly to my 2.7. When looking at the main control board for the 2.8 i see that the DB25 connector has changed compared to the 2.7.

Is the direction of the DB25 connector the only difference between the 2.7 and 2.8 main control boards? If so, i could just swap that connector to get it inline with the 2.8 design of the integrated female connector in the endcap. Or are there other changes in the 2.8 board?
