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 for rovers (tank track style RC Transmitter). When enabled, RC channel 1 is used for the left track control, RC channel 3 is used for right track control

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