I am currently trying to reuse old Quadcopter parts to make a small rover. I am setting it up to use skid steer for turning. Everything is set up step by step from the ArduRover Wiki with SkidSteerOutput enabled.
When Rover is powered 1 motor initializes and then 5-10 sec later the second motor initializes but when the throttle is increased 1 motor will spin from 0-100% throttle but the second motor will start spinning from ~60-100%
I have found that one way to get both motors to spin simultaneously at low throttle is to push the steering channel almost completely to the left then start increasing the throttle channel. It seems like there is something weird about the steering channel trim. the transmitter isn't trimmed left or right and when doing a radio calibration it is reading normal (left ~1100, center ~1500, right ~1900).
Is there anything not in the wiki that needs calibration or setting up before it will work?
Do the ESCs need to be calibrated and can they be calibrated all at once like a quadcopter?
