Re: Wanted- Otto, Dead or Alive
An experiment, turn otto on, disconnected from the tiller, align it so the motor is not activated,(ie, it thinks it is on coarse) let it sit for however long it takes to fail while sailing, an hour or two?, then rotate otto to see if the unit is still active.
Oh, it'll die even if I leave it in Standby mode, where it isn't steering at all. The red LED goes out, and it's totally non-responsive.
