I am building i USV. It`s very much alike the electronic setup Kevin has built.
I`m encountering some of the same issues with regard to skid steering. I think I need a little bit of a push to get it right.
My setup is:
2 Blue roboticT200 thruster
2 Basic Blue robotic ESC (forward and reverse)
Pixhawk (v3.01 AdruRover)
I read the full post and solutions recommended. Naturally I tried all of them out also with regard to my project,
Still my problem is to get the skid steer setting right.
I have connected the right thruster and ESC to RC1 and the left to RC3.
Still I only have been able to engage the right thruster from RC1. I have swapped ESC and thrusters to verify any hardware issues. All hardware units are OK.
I have also checked the settings of RC1 and RC2
SKID_STEER_IN is set to 1 and SKID_STEER_out is set to 0.
And RCMAP as shown below.
I have attached the logfiles to. Until now it
s all resting on a test bench. the boat havent been sailing yet due to the issues with the skid steering.
