Control Signals

Post by EduardoAguilar » Tue Jul 21, 2020 12:28 am

Hi guys!!

I have some questions about the file power_distribution_stock.c

In this file we send motorPower to motors but I don't know what are the unites.
Are Newton Meter?

And Can I to obtain the motorPower information?

Thank you!!

The motor power is more of a thrust percentage mapped to a uint16_t, where 0 is no trust and 65535 is full thrust. Its not really a unit in that sense.

Here is a page with some investigations (not converted to the new documentation structure yet): https://wiki.bitcraze.io/misc:investigations:thrust
