Turnigy 9X dual steering setup + Intro to PPM

Welcome to the third post! Today we are going to setup the turnigy 9X mode switch and some mixes so that we can switch between ackerman and differential drive modes. We are also going to be delving into receiver (Rx) output signals and PWM Vs PPM. Note: Most other transmitters (Tx) also have this functionality... Continue Reading →

The dual steering system and controllers

Welcome to my second post! Today we are looking into how the differential steering and Ackerman steering can be combined to produce a dual steering system - as discussed in the previous post, and how a suitable controller can be chosen to operate our robot. But before we plunge into combined steering mechanisms and wireless... Continue Reading →
