Testing motor and steering direction

A few users have suffered with their rovers driving in the wrong direction or with steering and throttle controls apparently being reversed. There are a few potential causes but the most common cause is having the RCx_REVERSED or SERVOx_REVERSED parameters set incorrectly.

Rover-3.2 includes a “Motor Test” feature which allows testing that the output (controlled by the SERVOx_REVERSED parameters) is correct and I’ve just added a section to the wiki here.

… and the pic below (from the wiki) gives the basics of how it can be used.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Randy, helped in the right direction for me. as each build can be different, I found my T100 thrusters were wired backwards and the rov tried to navigate in reverse. A quick rewire on the field (i had a one piece 3 pole bullet connector) and was good to go:)
