I’m new to this forum and also new to ardupilot, but i have seen this is a good community and i look forward to see more projects here.
First of all i want to explain what i want to do with my ardupilot:
we had here some Topic about TrollingMotors @rmackay9 anserwerd there some questions but a documention about how to configure ardupilot for trolling motors is still missing.
My goal is to create a complete documentation to use ardupilot to create a cheap TrollingMotor with GPS and “loiter”
All my test will be postet here: https://www.opentrollingmotor.org and videos at: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCVDB9ST9KKrJB6ykByx-pwA
If everything is completed and working i want to make for the rover a complete documentation how to setup a trollingmotor with gps.
And now to my problem:
Pixhawk 4 is configured as Rover frame class 2 (Boat), i did the calibration of Gyro and compass successfully.
I didnt have RC who can communicate with pixhawk thats why i dont want to use RC i changed these option in config:
Then i was going out to get GPS to test everything, i can arm the autopilot but my ESC and the StepperController are not working properly. the ESC is beeping and StepperController has red LED.
Here you can find two videos first about the StepperController, with my RC ist working good and second video Ardupilot Armed but ESC and Stepper not working:
Log and Config Data:
It looks like that i dont get signals by PWM.
I hope you guys can help me, maybe I just forget something small toodo.
Thank you very much for your help and enjoy your weekend
And sorry for my bad english…
