I both ArduPilot Mega (v1.4) for my boat. With ArdupilotMegaPlanner I have uploaded Firmaware to the board. Than I have done setups in terminal (radio and modes) I set on my 5ch switch manual-auto. On the board I have connected 3ch is throttle and 4ch steering(yaw) . So everything is right?
Today was first run on the lake with unhappy end :(. . In the flight planner I set my “home” and 2 waypoints. Than I have uploaded wps to the board. So than in manual mode I was pride how fast and smooth my boat goes..:) But when I turn on autopilot with my switch the boat made to cycles and with full throttle (top speed about 70km/h) gone into the shore..
Maybe can you help me and give some tips? I read ardu goes into the water and all other themes in forum, but there are nothing about UGV with ArdupilotMegaPlanner :(
