The grass has begun to grow, so I got the mower out for the first time in a few months today. I loaded 4.4-dev rather than 4.3-beta because I wanted to use optical flow. Relevant to 4.3, I can report that it’s still a bit of a struggle to achieve straight-line tracking, even with RTK GPS, moving baseline for yaw, AND optical flow enabled (I tried EK3_SRC1_VELXY=5 as well as EK3_SRC1_VELXY=3 + EK3_SRC2_VELXY=5). Will revisit my basic tune in the coming weeks and see how I can improve things.

Here are balance bot with hoverboard motors tests with beta10:

The 105cm doll approaches 1/1 scale, and the 48cm doll gives a more racing feeling. However, on the 48cm doll with 6.5" wheels, BAL_PITCH_MAX can reach a little above 30º (with covers touching ground), but with 10" wheels it can go above 45º:


10" is the way to go.
