I have a 3DR frame and I am having trouble following the instructions at http://stuff.storediydrones.com/ArduCopter3DRAssemblyInstructions for assembling the power distribution board. I received a 4 wire connector but the colors on it are green, orange, white, and yellow and I am having trouble figuring out which wire goes to which place on the PDB, since the instructions reference a wire with orange, white, red and black. Are the wires in order (where the metal pieces in the connector are up like in the image) so for me it would look like?
Here is the picture of the connector I received: IMAG0101.jpg.
The color of the wires does not really matter.
As long as you plug the connector in with the wire going to Motor 1 on the right hand side of your APM 1 board.
The motor outputs start on the right and go from 1 to 8 if using an APM 1
Refer to this page for APM 1
and this pge for APM2
Thanks for the quick reply. I followed the info on the APM2 page and everything tests ok!
Now you are ready for some fun.
