Building an RC project , driving and steering will be the back wheels. Front wheels are unguided (think grocery cart wheels).
I will be supplying two brushless 350watt 24V motors with signal and power from these kind of controllers:
I wonder if you can recommend any product that can take input from a spektrum receiver (PWM) and supply the throttle signal to these controllers. I’m unsure if they support PWM. A plus point would be to be able to take a gyro to stabilize the path.
Additionally, I am looking for a product that can mix the signal to steer the RC vehicle using these two brushless motors.
(direction, speed using these two wheels in a sort of “combat robot”/tank setup).
Does anyone know if Spektrum DX6 can do the work of mixing channels properly?
Equipment I currently have on hand:
2x 24v 350 brushless hub motors
2x electronic controllers for said motors
1x Spektrum DX6 + reciever (6CH)
2x Arduino boards
5x Sensor (cheap chinese ones)
1x Sabertooth 2x25A (for brushed motors, won’t be used for the steering / driving)
1x RC pwm input switch for 1 channelJune 29, 2017 at 5:41 am #4213BenParticipant
Update: Appearently the ESC should be able to take PWM.June 30, 2017 at 2:54 pm #4216SuperDroidKeymaster
I’m not familiar with the motor controller you linked but it seems it would be much easier to connect the output of your Spektrum receiver to a Sabertooth or RoboteQ motor controller. While in RC mode, they calculate the mixing for you and can be adjusted in the firmware settings. If you need something other than a RC output, then I would recommend using an Arduino or some kind of MCU to convert the RC values. All of these items are listed on our website.
