I am very new to the rovetr part of ardupilot, normally I use it for my copters.
So I hava a question:
I am using a FRSKY Taranis with crossfire (Team Blacksheep) wich works very well for all other this I use .
My original pixhawk is in my traxxas xmax and after some installtion issues it works as deisgned, exept reverse driving. I have to pull the throttel stick 5 or 6 times back (I use the right stick with middle position ) fpr dreiving reverse. The values in the calibration tab in MP are 1000 - 1500 - 2000. And as I wrote, it works, but I need tio pull stick several times. Any hints how I can fix this ?
The brake functions of R/C car ESCs can be a pain when they can not be turned off. Have started playing with using UAV ESCs reprogrammed with forward/reverse. Started by watching this video:
Also see BLHeli_32 ESC firmware has the ability for forward/reverse mode and no soldering of cables to program the ESC is a nice feature.
No active cooling on the ESCs, so get a large one. Am playing with the 60A ones in the video and doubt I will draw 10A in use.
Other thing I do not like about the R/C car ESCs is having to press the power button on the ESC to turn it on. Means need easy access to the ESC which is not always possible. More of a pain when using two or four of them (one per motor)
