"Output 3 but yeah that's how I would do it.  You're a little bit out of my standard R/C car based wheelhouse but I imagine you would get the desired result doing it that way.  Something that big I would have some sort of remote…"

"Thanks!!So in terms of wiring, the brakes/actuators should be connected to APM input 3 and then calibrated/set using mission planner? Yeah it's going to be a 20kg racer and the actuators that are going to be used run off 12V, so it seemed…"

"Not too sure about your diagram but I imagine you could use your brake on the throttle channel and just set it so full throttle = brake off and brake applies the brakes as expected.  It looks like you are planning on using some pretty heavy…"

autonomous rover- no motors, just servo for steering and actuator for braking- rolling down hill

The objective is to build an autonomous gravity racer (no motors, just rolling down a hill) to go through several waypoints. Autonomy through GPS and magnetometer.Was wondering if anyone can direct me a little in terms of how the coding to control the brakes for steering around corners, using an actuator, can be implemented.Also, if how the servo and actuators are connected in the attached planned schematic is appropriate.…See More
