I am working on a pontoon “Air Boat” with an aircraft / engine / propeller esc for slow (2 m/s) water surveys.
By using an “aircraft style” drive set up i believe i have messed up how rover interprets ch3 %. When my chan 3 is Min (980 pwm) throttle % is displayed at 100% (because it thinks i am full reverse?), however the esc interprets this setting as 0% output due to my low pwm output. When i hit 50% of chan 3 (1490 pwm) APM interprets that as 0% throttle, however the engine is spinning at 50% output.
I have tried resetting my throttle to the chan 4 rudder and/or chan 2 elevator on the transmitter, but the pwm output still drives the motor at 50% because pwm is still 1500 ish.
I tried resettng the min / max / trim of the pwm and that doesn’t work either.
Is there a work around for this without getting into code changes? Does rover code only work with “car” style esc’s with fwd and reverse???
