Hello, I am following this tutorial and I'm at the bottom test section where I am running arbotix_gui. I know it says to run rosrun arbotix_python controllerGUI.py, but that has been changed since Groovy. After running it, this gui pops up below:

I can check a box and manipulate that servo, and the arm moves accordingly; however, 10 seconds after the gui has been run, the arm will no longer respond to the sliders. If I disconnect the arm and turn it off, relaunch the roslaunch turtlebot_bringup minimal.launch and the roslaunch turtlebot_arm_bringup arm.launch, run the arbotix_gui again, it will work again for 10 seconds before going kaput once again.

I don't get any errors thrown at me, I have no idea what could possibly be going wrong. Any help is appreciated. Thanks.
