This is specifically designed to work with our Cheap & Dirty Controls out of the box with no need to reprogram. This Rev B design is more compact and efficient! This RC mixer is designed for four wheeled mecanum robots. It mixes three input RC channels: x, y, and spin to generate the appropriate signals for motors controlling four mecanum wheels.
- 4 wheel mecanum mixing with translation and rotation input
- Failsafe on signal loss
- No need for line boosters when used with IFI speed controllers
- Add a heading hold gyro to your steering input for even more control!
- Signal Boosting to each PWM output
Good product, way too little documentation.
Worked fine after I figured it out, but you didn't provide enough info for this; here are the three biggest things I'd have liked to know. The preinstalled jumper to the left of the outputs will cause it to run a "test mode" where it runs front left, front right, rear left, rear right, then pause; in order to actually use the thing, this jumper must be removed. The input wires are labeled thus: Yellow is forward/reverse, Blue is strafe, and no label is rotate. Hot swapping wires does not usually seem to achieve the desired results; you often must power cycle the mixer. (AndyMark feedback: Thank you for this input. We will add more documentation.)
Arrived on time, exactly as advertised.
Purchased for an off-season study project into the mecanum-drive arrangement.
