I have been on quite the build and I need just a bit more help.
Instead of using the custom industrial motor I was going to use, I am taking the whole ‘brain’ and simply putting it into an rc car first to test everything out. However I’m not sure what to do about motors, how I should wire them up, etc. and I have not been able to find any good guides to help me. Here is my set-up:
- Pixhawk 2.1 with Rover 3.2.0 beta 2
- U-blox Here+ GNSS
I purchased a skid steer/tank RC device that has two basic brushed motors in it figuring this would be the easiest way to go.
Power is currently a 3600 mah 7.2v venom nimh battery running through the Spektrworks Power Brick Mini
Now my questions:
- should I use these motors or…
- use something else such as a servo (I have a couple of MG 996R) and driver (stepstick) combo ?
Either way, how do I wire it up? I assume I can use the 12.8v lithium ion battery (or use the system battery) but again, not sure how to wire that up.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
