We are tring to build a FPV Rover combining a logitech racing wheel with an RC Car for an FPV platform.

However we are having some problems with the latency and tracking of the steering wheel input. 

- I have checked the RC inputs using MAVlink and checked that the rc override was working fine

(The racing wheels seem to be in sync with the rc inputs)

- The steering does respond but is rather slow in response and does not move to the ends

- I checked this using the my turnigy 9x receiver but there was no problem with the steering, steering responds well

-> to conclude,

The RC inputs seem to change properly commanded by the racing wheel but when steering with mavlink latency problem and tracking problem comes in. There is no problem when controlling with the rc transmitter

Does anybody have an idea to fix or go around this problem?
