I know this is an Adurover group, but Thought I would reach out and try my odds for some help as I'm perplexed by this problem.
I have a Traxxas X-Maxx set up with a Pixhawk Cube 2.1 and the Here GPS. I'm using a Tarranis X7 remote controller and a X8R Sbus Receiver. I'm using QGroundControl with the latest, Pixhawk 1.8.0 Firmware with the Generic Rover airframe profile installed. As instructed, I have Steering servo wired into Main 2 and Throttle ESC wired into Main 4. Sensors are calibrated and green, flight modes are set to Manual and Mission.
Everything seems to be set up and testing fine except throttle and steering are not responding whatsoever when armed. I have tried everything I can think of, Tried the other rover airframe profiles for the Traxxas and Axiom Racer, still, no go. I did check to see if it was a rover mechanical issue and wired the steering and ESC servo cables directly to the receiver. It fired up and runs fine as a standard RC truck, so I know everything is in working condition.
I did test ardurover and it works fine but I really don't have the option of abandoning Pixhawk for Adupilot as this is a team project with members developing software for pixhawk rover firmware,
Anyone else having this problem? Any ideas that I should try? All feedback is greatly appreciated.
Big thanks in advance!!
