Topic: User support of skid steering rovers using Sabertooth ESCs
Proposal type: Hardware [X] , Software [ ] , Other [ ] : _________________
I am looking for funding to get one of these
which I will mount on this 4x4 rover which I already have
The problem is at least once a month I get a user with a skid steering rover using one of these Sabertooth controllers which have their own configuration via a set of dip switches and invariably one of those is wrong and causes issues. The problem is I'm not positioned to advise the user at all as I've no idea what the correct settings on the Sabertooth should be. Yes I can read the data sheet but some of the settings seem to be counter-intuitive.
The other significant benefit to this is I will finally get my skid steering rover up and running and be able to do real world testing of all the skid steering rover code.
Planned amount $$ (USD): Its $155.00 Australian dollars (this includes $10 for shipping) so xe.com tells me that's $118USD.
Estimated time for completion:
Once the controller turns up it will be a few days to build the rover up.
