Are others having issues with transient signals causing motors and servo to pulse?


#1

I have it all laid out on the bench at the moment. From the very beginning I would have occasional video frame jitters and the servo would sit and make small clicking noises while not actually rotating. Now that I have the motors attached, I see the ESC's can occasionally get a signal (the LED does turn red) and it will start rotating a motor for a second and then stop. The servo seems the most sensitive (always clicking in random ways). Motors are more random and show less impact, and seem to settle down after a bit.


#2

I've noticed that the motors occasionally move on their own sporadically and I've assumed its from something in the software, but perhaps it is an electrical issue... I suppose we could test this by changing scoping what goes into and out of the cape.

Hmmm...

#3

I've added Arduino code that keeps sending the ESC position data. The transients seem to no longer be effecting the motors as a result.
