so, I solved my problem. Doing a review of all parameters and spending more time reading the forum helped me a lot.
The problem came from my misunderstanding of the input and output channels. A lot of documentation exist for ardurover before 3.5, apparently it is a little bit different now. Making a sort in all these information was a bit tricky but at the end it works and it is actually quite logical
So my configuration:
Sabertooth in mixing mode and exponential response.
Then, in mission planner / mandatory hardaware / servo output, positions 1 and 2 are set to the functions RCIN 1 and 2 aka the right joystick of my RC transmitter (mode 2: roll & pitch).
The RCMAP is set as described in the transmitter.
I had troubles with SKID_STEER_IN and SKID_STEER_OUT which does not exist anymore in ardurover 3.5 (or I didn’t find them). Now it is PILOT_STEER_TYPE and when it is set to DEFAULT it works quite well. A part of my misunderstanding came from that I wanted a skid steering but with only one joystick. When the value is set to 1, the rover moves like a tank, with 2 joystick, and my RCMAP was messy for that…
So now, the manual mode is working well. The autonomous mode does not work so I guess something is still messing somewhere but there is some progress, so it is cool…

PS: I have uploaded the parameters file. I am not sure it is the logfile that we were talking about in previous messages. If not, I will take a look at the SD card.
PS 2: I am still learning so probably the explanation and resolution of my problem are not clear. If necessary I will work on that too…
