Hi to all members, and BIG thanks to the dev team for making v4.0 possible.
I have just installed this new version in one of my pixhawks and mounted it in a tracked vehicle (tank) a mini T100 frame, with some changes for adapting 2 motors made out of 996 modified servos, although the size is not relevant for my question.
The fact is that, configuring the vehicle as PILOT_STEER_TYPE 1 as I supposed it needs to be (tank=skidsteer), leads to weird behaviour in radio response, both Radiolink and Taranis. Simply ungovernable.
But luckily for me leaving the parameter PILOT_STEER_TYPE 0, the manual response is as desirable, that is, Pixhawk is mixing channels for dual tracks fine, as a tanks is supposed to go, both tracks paired front-rear, inverted to steer.
Of course Servo1_Function=73 and Servo3_Function=74 with pins to pixhaw rail positions 1 and 3 respectively.
No mixing in radio, with a fresh new model in memory, and RCMAP in MP changed to 3-1-2-4 (pitch-roll-th-yaw) as stated in wiki.
¿Is something wrong with PILOT_STEER_1 and/or why it is not working as supposed to be for tracked vehicles? ¿Will it work in Guided or Auto, even when it is a tracked vehicle and Manual is working fine only when PILOT_STEER=0?
PS: I’m using sikradio so I can modify performance directly. When changing RCMAP_, the tips in MissionPlanner states that needs to be rebooted to take effect, but Pix is accepting changes fine without rebooting. I suppose it is something from old APM code. Just saying, in case you want to change this tips from compilation.
