Skid Steer Parameter TuningΒΆ

The skid-steer parameters are used to configure whether a Skid Steer vehicle uses a dual throttle skid steer transmitter or a conventional single throttle RC transmitter.

There are two parameters, only one of which should be enabled (depending on the type of transmitter used).

SKID_STEER_OUT 0=Disabled 1=SkidSteer Set this to 1 for skid steering controlled rovers (tank track style). When enabled, servo1 is used for the left track control, servo3 is used for right track control
SKID_STEER_IN 0=Disabled 1=SkidSteerRC Set this to 1 for skid steering input rovers (tank track style RC Transmitter). When enabled, servo1 is used for the left track control, servo3 is used for right track control

The options are set in the Mission Planner CONFIG/TUNING | Standard Params page:
