Does anyone have any experience coding an rov with 6 motors (4 forward/reverse & 2up/down) that could give me assistance?

Ive set the PWM pins on the arduino (mega) but not really sure where to go from here. Have read a lot of online content regarding the equations used for a vectored thrust configuration, but having difficulty putting it onto working code.

Thanks

So, you want to run 6 motors.
And you have an arduino Mega.

Have you decided how you will drive the motors?  If not, Polulu makes many motor drivers.
Are you at the stage where you are ready to code?  If so, what have you tried and how did it go?

Edit: Is this a continuation of the thread you started a few weeks ago here?

If so, there were questions asked there that still need answered.
Is this going to be a tethered ROV?
If you want to control it from the surface, this is the easiest way.

Edit2:  Might as well get more questions put out there:
  • Which motors will you use?
  • Which motor drivers will you use?
  • What environment will this ROV be operated in?  Bathtub? Swimming pool?  Open ocean?

This ROV for air or water (or even land)?

from the OPs other thread, we get this:
Yes the ROV is to be fully submersible.
