I'm currently trying to get a servo to rotate when I roll my pixhawk past 10 degrees. I have my working code so far and my pixhawk recognizes when I am rolling the device left or right, but instead of rotating left when rolled left, or rotating right when rolled right it end up rotating the same amount to the right side every time, even when rolled left.
What I would like to know is how could I get my servo to rotate to the left instead of the right?
Here is the code I am using to rotate my servo to the left, after this if statement the signal is published to the actuators:
if (roll < -10)
degreechange = m_roll + 10;
rcvalue = degreechange / 180;
acutator.controls[i] = rcvalue;
This should give me a negative rcvalue. If I roll my pixhawk -70 degrees then degreechange will be -60 degrees. Then to turn it in to a value from -1f to 1 I divide by 180, this value is now sent to the actuator.controls[i] and it should then get scaled up by the IO_pass mixer file. Since I am sending a negative value then the pixhawk should move the servo to the left correct?
Am I misunderstanding how the acutator.controls[i] works? Am I sending a wrong float number? or is it a problem with my mixer?
Here is the complete code:
Thank you for the help.
