Hi guys, I’m a new developer trying to use ArduPlane for an aircraft that has 4 motors on each wing, similar to the NASA X57, and I’m unsure what the best way to add more motors to the code is.
servos.cpp I see that I can modify and hard-code 8 PWM outs in
Plane::servos_output, however I’d like do this the proper clean way and hopefully create a pull request for the new configuration.
Another concern is, I am using the Holybro Pixhawk4 which supports 8 channels in the “I/O PWM OUT” which would be used by all the motors. I am thinking of using the “FMU PWM OUT” for my control surfaces, but I am unsure of how to assign PWM outs to the “FMU PWM OUT”. Can anyone point me to the code/documentation on how to do this?
FYI, I would prefer not to use Y-cables because I would like to test specific motor-outs which require individual motor controls.
Thanks in advanced.
