I am starting to get my ArduRover configured and am having some trouble with getting basic functionality from my radio to my steering servo. I have APM2.5+ and have loaded ArduRover2.20B via Mission Planner (version 1.2.35 mav 1.0). I am trying out to see if I can get my steering input from transmitter to go through the APM2.5+ and get to the steering servo. However, I am not seeing the steering servo move. I am currently only using this channel (channel 1) for communication (no ESC communication is hooked up yet since I only have 1 male-to-male servo cable at this moment while I wait for more to be shipped to me).
I have connected channel 1 of the RC Receiver in the vehicle to input 1. Then I have my steering servo connected to output 1 on the APM2.5+ I am able to see that when I move the steering stick on my transmitter that the "Roll" input value is changing from the Radio Calibration window in Mission Planner (from Configuration menu) on the APM2.5. I have gone through the CLI setup for "reset" and "radio" and see the max/min limits have changed for Ch1. My flight mode is set to manual.
Do I need to provide external power to the servo or does the APM+ provide the equired +5V signal via the output ch1 interface? Currently i am using my ESC output to power the RC transmitter only. The steering servo is only connected to the output of the APM2.5+.
Not sure what else to try. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!
