Before Posting an Issue

Hi All,

Before posting an issue or a problem in the ArduRover 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.

    @Darius Jack,

    I have no idea about the mysteries of how NING, the platform where this website is hosted, orders the discussion threads nor do I really care.

  • Cheers, TCIII. I'm happy either way, as long as my voice from the depths of confusion get heard by those enlightened with knowledge :-)) lol
    I'm just grateful for everyone's help.
    Cheers,

  • @Thomas,

    you have made a history (see below).

    Could you kindly explain me what made some threads

    to be reverse ordered against input time vs. some other

    threads to be ordered to read the last reply as the newest one ?

    This thread is exactly reverse ordered  so page 96 redirected me to your oldest inputs.

    Hi Chris,

    It has been a long time since I had my Google account and I do not even remember the password. I remember that we tried to do the same thing with ArduPlane and I could not get linked. I need to establish a new Google account and get hooked up.

    Regards,

    Thanks, Tom. We'll be using the usual Google Code wiki. I've put up a stub page here. If you can PM me your email (linked to a Google account), I can give you edit permission.

    I'm going to start work on the ArduRover manual when I'm back from vacation in a week. Who would like to help?

    @Richard,

    The ArduRover and ArduBoat User Group links in the ArduRover Tab will not redirect you to the new ArduPilot.org website until we have Chris Anderson's permission to do so since he is the owner of the DIY Drones website.

  • Just noticed that I'm not being redirected to the new site?

  • @Thomas,

    thank you for your kind reply.

    I am really sorry, I was not aware of your problems with Solo, DIYDrones, money and more.

    I wish you all all the best, prosperity and success in private and business life.

    Chris once responded to me on behalf of the moderators.

    Earlier, I was really not aware why so many followers flooded my threads with not really nice responses,

    as I know now, living under strong stress.

    BTW

    Please keep DIYDrones going on.

    Since Tridge has plans to go PRO, if there any chance to remove

    GNU Linces from Ardu code,

    that part claiming

    this code is Not fit for any purpose.

    Not sure FAA can certify commercial drone controlled by firmware claiming

    Not fit for any purpose.

    (don't take it personally)

    @Darius Jack,

    You will have to ask Chris Anderson directly what his future plans are for DIY Drones as I have no idea.

    ArduPilot.org is just one of many DIY drone resources on the web. However a man once said: "Build it and they will come." We feel that we have built a quality website in relation to the DIY community and the ArduPilot environment needs. Time will tell.

  • @Thomas,

    you were so happy announcing the growth of population at DIYDrones.

    DIYDrones features better web interface, made of media + groups + web links.

    Not sure if making that transition and damping traffic you can offer us with win-win strategy.

    Ok, I am aware of anti-trust risks involved and frankly speaking Chris should not plays double role of CEO at 3D Robotics and owner at DIYDrones since it may confuse some developers about Ardu projects.

    Alike strategy developed by Google and called Android + Nexus, never worked well, limiting interest in Nexus granted first0hand access to latest developments by Anroid team.

    Why not let us buy equity in DIYDrones made by users to fund servers, staff like you and others, to keep Ardu projects going ?

    CEO at Wikipedia claims MM$ donations to keeep his service on.

    Could you tell me more about the future of DIYDrones ?

    @Darius Jack,

    ArduPilot.org is a separate entity and has no relationship to DIY Drones which is owned by Chris Anderson.

power module for rover

I have built a 4WD rover driven by 2-350 watt motors with differential steering. The motors are controlled by 2 Cytron MD30C motor drivers fed by PWM signal from a Pixhawk clone. The rover has 2 lead acid batteries (140Ah) supplying 24 volts for the motors (25 amps max each).I am trying to determine the best power module for this application.  This one on Amazon has the input voltage range and the amp capacity but I don’t know if it is compatible with this flight controller:Hobbypower Power…

skid steer vehicle steering uncontrollable

Hi all, I have a skid steer robot using a pixhawk cube, one 1x15 roboclaw motor controller and a dagu wild thumper 4 wheel chassis. I have skid steering working so far, testing motor c and motor d tests works as described and the vehicle can be controlled in manual mode. However, upon using any mode other than manual mode the rover wants to shake and pivot on the spot, and it seems the steering PID controller oscillates and these oscillations get larger. i have tried everything but it is still…

Hi,I have converted a Traxxas X-Maxx into a rover using the Pixhawk Cube 2 controller kit with a Here GNSS.I swapped out the original X-Maxx remote controller for an X6R receiver and Taranis QX7 radio.latest version of ArduRover firmware installed as of 8/11/18.  The rover has an EZRun Max6 ESC. The problem now is the ESC control over the transition into reverse.
