The BlueROV2 can be used with any gamepad or joystick controller, but this is the controller that we use and recommend. The Xbox Wireless Controller is ergonomic, precise, and durable enough for ROV operations.
This controller has:
- 2 force-sensitive joysticks with center-click buttons
- 16 buttons available for button functions
- Additional 15 functions assignable on a shift layer
…all of which can be assigned to functions on the BlueROV2 or any other ArduSub controlled vehicle.
The controller has a Bluetooth wireless connection to your computer or device, but you can also connect a USB-C cable to provide a hardwired connection. It is powered by two AA batteries with up to 40 hrs of battery life.
