Forward / Reverse Control

The joystick is used to control the forward / reverse motion of the ROV.



The Joystick does not have a label.


Displace the joystick forward (away from you) to move the ROV forward. Displace the joystick rearward (toward you) to move the ROV backward.

The greater the displacement from the center position, the faster the ROV will move or turn in that direction.

The joystick can be moved in any direction to simultaneously move forward or backward while turning or moving laterally.

Do not run the horizontal thrusters in air for an extended period of time. Doing so may cause overheating and damage to the components.
