Has anyone successfully configured a MCL for radio controlling 2 motors for driving/turning behavior?
I previously had a RoboClaw and the setup was straightforward, but I have a MCP236 now and am either missing something in the docs or the config, as I'm getting erratic behavior.
- 2 motors, faced towards each other intending to drive 2 rear wheels for driving and turning
- Futaba 6ch radio/receiver
- DB15 connector with terminal screws for wires
- 12V battery
I have the signal wires of the pwm receiver hooked up to the P1 and P2 ports, and it is powered and grounded. I have enabled Pulse mode on those ports in Ion Studio and set them to control both motors. And Control Mixing is enabled as well. I see the position etc activity on the 2 ports, so I think those are correct.
What I think I'm missing is some method to link these together for mixed mode driving. Additionally since the motors are faced towards each other, I need a way to reverse one of their outputs. I didn't see that as an option either.
Thanks very much for any help or guidance here!
