Default motor mixer ??

I am running twin brushless motors on my boat and would like to use the motor speed to assist turning . Is there a mixer avaliable to do that ?

The hardware mixer that I have seen was intended for brushed ESCs - response might be different with brushless ESCs.

A V-tail mixer should do the job, but you'll need two ESCs (in case you don't have that already). You write "assist" turning, so I assume you're also using a rudder. In that case, you'd want to adjust the ESCs so they only cut out very late (or cut in very early).

Keep us posted!
