Mixing RC input with serial commands
  • Hello,

    I am building a handheld gimbal with an Arduino connected to an 8bit board and I want to add an absolute reference to the yaw axis (as in this diagram: http://www.basecamelectronics.com/company/blog/show/?newsid=108 ) to eliminate gyro drift issues and let it initialize at the center.

    The tips say that you can use RC Mix to have remote control together with follow control, but would this work for commands sent over the serial interface, as opposed to the FC_INPUT or RC_INPUT pins?

    Thanks for the help.
  • I have not tested, but don't see why not, it should work.

    Ps. When you have Arduino connected, you could connect also the potentiometer via Arduino, and that would give some more control for tuning it.
