I had my Boat in the water today. All boots up no problems.
But then I encounter some erratic behavior.
When the vessel is armed, in MANUAL mode everything works fine. Left/Right (at a decent speed) and Forward/Reverse (at a great speed). So the next course was to plug in a few way points to see if the AUTO mode would work.
The firs time I did it it went nowhere near the first way point and went straight into some mangroves on the bank. RTL did not work to retrieve it. I had to put it back in MANUAL mode and it responded so I could move it out.
So I then put it in STEERING mode. I can hear a thruster (or both not sure) engage slightly but not enough to move the vessel. Forward/Reverse work fine in this mode but steering is either non existent or very, very slow.
Then after some time I tried 2 Way points in AUTO and it seemed to work fine. Then RTL and it came home, very slow and sort of slowly wobbled to get back.
One of the main things that happens is I get EXF errors for the Compass. Also Compass Variance comes and goes during a setup. I disabled the Pixhawk Compass and use the GPS compass. (I may just need to do a re-calibration?)
I have attached the log file where it went crazy (you can clearly see the compass is not aligned with the vehicle direction)
For some reason the Log for when it went between 2 waypoints and then RTL isn’t stored locally. I wll have to see if its on the pixhawk.
If anyone has any ideas on this, I would be very grateful for your input.
