Hi folks - I respectfully request help diagnosing this problem from flash log here:
00000006.BIN (748 KB)
I’m running Rover v3.5.0 on a one-man pontoon boat with a trolling motor with vectored steering provided via a servo turning the motor shaft. All works fine in manual mode but cannot figure out why no steering action in auto mode. To diagnose this I created the simplest possible waypoint file with a single waypoint about 50 ft to the right of where the boat sits on its trailer in my garage. From the log file you can see the successful thrust and steering in manual mode after the initial auto mode period. In auto mode the prop immediately spins up but the expected steering turn does not happen (despite the “SteerOut” pulse you can see in the logs). I have played with steering tuning per http://ardupilot.org/rover/docs/rover-tuning-steering-rate.html to no avail.
What am I missing here ? On a side note, the thrust (and observed prop speed) are at full throttle in auto mode in this test regardless of the CRUISE_THROTTLE setting.
Thanks for any pointers,
