Hey all, having an odd problem with my rover. When in auto mode and set to a waypoint or a “fly here,” it drives in circles to the left. I tried reversing steering (roll), as I saw that fix, but then it starts driving right, lines up with the Opposite direction of the waypoint, and goes straight as though heading towards the waypoint.
Mission planner is showing the rover facing the way it’s driving, so I’m not sure that it’s a compass problem.
You should have posted in the Operating/Tuning sub forum.
What navigation controller are you using: APM2.x or Pixhawk?
How many satellites is MP showing and what is your HDOP value?
How far in meters is the waypoint in relation to where the rover is starting from?
Are you using servo steering or skid steering to steer your rover?
My bad on the wrong forum, but thanks for the fast reply.
Using Pixhawk, with ArduRover 3.0.
I’m getting 8 satellites, typically < 2 HDOP.
The rover is trying to go about 10 meters.
Please provide a tlog and a dataflash log of the rover trying to go to the specified waypoint.
Instructions for capturing tlogs and dataflash logs can be found here.
When you say you tried to reverse the steering did you set the RC1_REV (I assume channel 1 is your steering channel) to -1?
What RC receiver are you using with your Pixhawk and what does your RCMAP_X look like?
