Looking for guidance on using ROS with a Spektrum 6650 DX6e 6CH Transmitter and a DSM Quad Race Receiver connected to a BeagleBone Blue (BBBL) via its JST interface for DSM2 radios to control various servos and/or motors attached to appropriate BBBL ports. The BBBL is running Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS and ROS Kinetic Version 1.12.12. I found a package called ROSPPM ( https://github.com/Jaeyoung-Lim/rosppm ) that is designed to allow a Ardunio/PC communicate with a PPM based Turnigy 9x Transmitter’s Trainerport. More details on the POSPPM package can be found here: https://404warehouse.net/2016/07/13/r...

Please be a bit more specific on you Goal, what you tried so far, and where you experience Problems related to ROS.

Mig, my goal is to utilize a ROS package that will allow students to drive a two wheeled, differential drive robot base potentially assisted by onboard sensors, e.g., ultrasonics, RGB camera, lidar, etc. The system uses BBBL hardware as noted above. So far, I have searched in vain for examples.

Mig, while I have found examples of using a DSM link with a BBBL for remote control driving of the eduMiP bot using the default BBBL roboticscape package under Debian, e.g., see http://strawsondesign.com/#!edumip-dsm , I can not find a similar resource for so this under ROS.
