So I’ve set up a test bench, that includes a load cell that I’m using to measure thrust from a quadcopter. I’ve been able to control PWM signals via the actuator panel within QGroundcontrol, by setting the aux1-4 to Constant Min and manually adjusting the Min value. Information can be found here. This works, but its not ideal and I was hoping I could set these values directly in software.
I’m familiar with QGroundControl, but I have never used Mavlink before. So I’m not sure if this is possible or where I would start looking. I did start looking at the pymavlink documentation and I don’t see anything about constant min/max
I would want to use Pymavlink to accomplish this.
The goal is to be able to read the thrust from the load sensor, and adjust the PWM so that I can maintain a consistent thrust value without any additional stablization from the flight controller.
