reduce maximum velosity in rc

Post by twannie » Tue Jun 08, 2021 7:46 am

Hello all, English is not my native language so i hope you can understand me.

I am using a roboclaw 2x30a with 2 wheelchair motors and control it with rc. This works, but how can i reduce the speed so it can`t go so fast anymore with full throttle. I tryed in the velocity page but i can`t change it there. I don`t know if it has anything to do with it, but when i connect motion studio with the roboclaw m1 encoder and m1 speed value change al the time although motor is not running. When i let the motor run with the rc remote then i can see the m1 + m2 amps change but not the speed.

Greetings Twannie

There is currently no setting to set a maximum power/speed. When using Analog or RC controls the full power/speed range is mapped to the controls full range.

We plan on adding this functionality eventually but we are currently busy with testing new revisions(changes required due to the parts shortage). It will be a while before this feature will be added.
