Before Posting an Issue

Hi All,

Before posting an issue or a problem in the ArduBoat Discussion Forum, please check the wiki table of contents, review the firmware release notes in the subforum, and search that subforum for existing answers to your question. Help avoid duplicate threads by finding other members with the same issue and their solution.

When formulating your post, use a descriptive title such as "rover will not navigate to waypoints in the Auto mode" (not "HELP!" or "Problem").

Please include the following information to help diagnose your query:

  • Describe the problem you are having. What is the expected verses the observed behavior?
  • Provide hardware information such as the brand and version of your autopilot, GPS, radio, and compass, as well as any other pertinent details about your rover setup.
  • What version of the APM: ArdurRover2 firmware version are you running?
  • For navigation issues, provide your tlog and/or dataflash log. Click here for instructions on retrieving a dataflash log.

    @Rustom,

    Sorry, had $75k on the brain:-) Still hope that you make it!

    I ordered the built-in ESCs to go with the three T100 Thrusters that I had original pledged for.

  • @Thomas - The third stretch goal is actually at $95K, not $75K, so we're not quite there yet. Hopefully we'll make it before the end!

    @Chris - Thanks!

    Hi All,

    Congratulations to Blue Robotics as they have reached the third stretch KickStarter T100 Thruster Project goal of $75k!

    So if any of the members here are looking for a thruster with more thrust than the original T100, the T200 might just fill your requirements.

    Hi All,

    Blue Robotic's KickStarter Thruster Project has reached $50k and looks like it is well on its way to the second stretch goal of $65k!

  • Can`t wait to get my hands on mine.

    I`m looking forward to seeing what stretch gaol number 2 is.

    Hi All,

    Congratulations to Blue Robotics for making their stretch goal of $40k today!

  • @Thomas - Thanks! We're very excited. We just posted an update with our stretch goals! The first is a mounting bracket that provides more versatile mounting options. This one is particularly helpful if you want to mount it to a boat hull or other surface where it's hard to tighten screws into the regular mounting holes.

    Here's an image showing the mounting bracket on the thruster in a few orientations and mounting screws through the bracket:

    Thanks!

Rudder control for kontiki

Hi all,I want to install a rudder on to my kontiki, which is like a submarine which floats on the surface and takes a fishing line out to sea.I am thinking of using an apm 2.8 with gps (because thats what i have) to drive a 20kg servo. The gps should point at a point about 3km out from the beach and the kontiki should follow that course until the timer turns off.I would be grateful for any advise how to go about this.

How to connect 2 Brushless Motors and 1 rudder

Hi, I'm new to Pixhawk. I'm making a boat. I do have 2 brushless motor with ESC and 1 servo which is connected to the rudder. How can I connect them to the Pixhawk 2.4.8. What changes should I bring in the parameters? From readings, I come to know that servo should be connected to RC1 and motor to RC3. But what should I do when I have 2 motors, which are kept in both the ends. Thank you
