Manoeuvre an ROV with just one hand!
Our world-first, remote controller plugs into your topside computer via USB and allows full movement control of your underwater ROV in one-hand. Gently push, twist and/or roll the orb in the direction that you want your vehicle to move: ascend/descend, yaw, pitch, roll, strafe, or forward/reverse.
Buttons can be mapped in QGC to your personal preference to control other functions, like LED brightness, control mode, arm/disarm, etc.
Operates smoothly in four degrees-of-freedom (4DoF) for the BlueROV2 and is capable of six degrees-of-freedom (6DoF) for the BlueROV2 Heavy configuration with custom QGC software.
