Anyone got a simple way or easy to understand tutorials for planning for your own robot? Can't seem to understand the OMPL tutorials on ROS.

Oh, I thought OMPL is just the library used in arm_navigation and is not to be used directly.

Have you seen the enclosing arm_navigation stack (with its arm_navigation_experimental sibling) at a whole? There are tutorials to get it running. You will need a simple URDF robot model for the kinematics, but it's not that complex and there are tutorials, too.

felix k I've got a simple urdf model, when I spawn it on gazebo and try to echo the tf transforms it says one of the links exists with no parent but when I look at the urdf file all the links look perfectly connected and check_urdf parses the urdf successfully. Any ideas? Thanks
