The Starboard ESC is not working properly.

I have an OpenROV with the model number 1499. The Starboard I believe the starboard esc is not working properly because it is not allowing the rov to reverse only on the starboard side. As I hold the red button to program it it has a constant beep beep beep that is not 14 in a row. I would like help to know how to fix this problem. The vertical motor and the port side motor are working properly.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Hello Tyler,

I would like to refer you to the support team to help you get this fixed. This is more than likely a software problem and not a bad ESC but they can walk you through it to diagnose the problem.

Thanks,

Hi Tyler,

If you're using the stock EZRun 18 amp ESC's then be sure to confirm that your Starboard ESC, programmable item #1, is set to 3 for "rockcrawler" mode. If this item has been set to 1, the corresponding motor will operate in Forward, but not in Reverse.

Hope this helps, Howard.

Hello,

If you are running the latest version of the software, 2.5.1, this is a known issue. You can follow the issue here and the temporary workaround until we can get it patched can also be found there.
