You need to ask yourself whether you’ve identified the problem, or are you assuming it is the joystick ?
Yes i have narrowed the issue down to the joysticks. i have tried using different potentiometers and it has worked well, and has given me a smoother response over a wider range. i will try and modify the potentiometers in the joysticks and hopefully that allows me to access a larger range. The link was to show you the configuration that i had (skid steer)
What model ESC are you using, are they programmable.
If you lift the robot off the ground and operate the joysticks, do you have better control with no load?
Hi tom, I am using generic 30 Amp esc’s they have worked well smoothly with my old helicopter potentiometers but because i am using a custom made remote, its difficult to implement them in the small space i have in the remote.
You need to post your arduino/joystick code for evaluation. Your problem may be with your wireless connection or the motor control and mechanical setup.
Here is my code. (Transmitter)
int potpin1 = 0;
int potpin2 = 1;
txdata.servo1val = analogRead(potpin1);
txdata.servo2val = analogRead(potpin2);
txdata.servo1val = map(txdata.servo1val, 0, 1023, 0, 179);
txdata.servo2val = map(txdata.servo2val, 0, 1023, 0, 179);
And my receiver
