@NRottmann My problem is that the backmotor's parent is SERVO_LINK and it's parent is the BASE_LINK. The Motor model, base plugin etc. doesnt support this type of serial linkage. I am looking to bypass that.
Not off the top of my head. Have you tried giving the thrust mixer the full range? Once I see which controllers you're using we can step through the code and figure out where it's being constrained to [0, 1].
I have added a pull request for my simulation model (http://discuss.px4.io/t/pwm-out-sim-does-not-mix-the-pitch-signal-correctly/3670).
I also solved the problem with the output being constrained to [0, 1]. The chosen MAV_TYPE is there crucial, it may be possible to integrate an own MAV_TYPE for the AUV. Right now I just chose a convenient one to get the simulation working.
One last problem which I am facing is described here: http://discuss.px4.io/t/pwm-out-sim-does-not-mix-the-pitch-signal-correctly/3670 . Maybe you have an idea why this happen?
i can not open the "PX4 ROS Simulation Instructions NRottmann " docs, can you upload again? @NRottmannJun '17
