i do have some question and hopefully someone can direct me to a tutorial or have some tips?!
right now the thumper is setup with 3 H-Bridges and wired as the tutorial say's
but I'm looking to control the thumper more like a "BobCat" Two joysticks to control left and right wheels independent.
what joystick would you recommend? (one unit with two joysticks with a lot of extra buttons)
i would like for one side of the joystick to control the left side of the thumper and the other side the right side of the thumper.
next question, with the jumper wire soldered for speed control; can i assume that the right pin controls speed on the right side and the left pin the left side? AKA could i make a separate wiring harness for each side to control the speed independently for each side?
i would like to ad lights that go on when the thumper is moving either forward or in reverse. what would be the best "switch" for that purpose and could i tap into the signal wire for either forward or reverse motion to activate the switch?
the way i have setup the H-Bridges, the are powered straight from the battery packs both positive and negative. there are small buttons on the H-Bridges are these to switch between EZ-B power / Battery power?
here a video of thumper running
and some pictures
i did spend a bid of time looking at the tutorials but didn't watch them all. so main questions are;
what Joystick to get?
what switch to use for lights?
the switches on the H-Bridges, what is their purpose?
can i controle Thumper as a "BobCat"
