Hi. Have you checked that you don't have any prop upside down ? Each prop has a up side and a down side, usually the up side is where the letters with the reference of the prop are. To have a ccw and a cw, it's not a matter of flipping one prop, they are specific for cw and ccw, the profile is not symetric, if looked from a side, the blade looks like a plane wing. Another thing, check that you don't have an ESC with brake on configuration. Check your ESC manual about "brake" function. If one or two have the "brake on" and the others have "brake off", the propellers will react different, and it could be the cause. Hope to have helped.
Props are identical to the diagram in
I will load up the programmer on each ESC and see what I find. I saw you once had this problem as well. Thanks for the help.
Can you post a pic real quick of your quad? I know you've gone over the props, but, you know... ;)
could be several things:
1) your accelerometer offsets were not set (in CLI or Mission Planner)
2) your motors/props are spinning in the correct direction, but ESCs are connected to the APM in the wrong order.
3) your APM is mounted in X mode but firmware is in + mode (or vice versa)
I'm inclined to think it is #2 or #3
if #2 turns out to be the case, be sure to check to make sure you have the correct prop and motor orientation again as it may be changed!
to calibrate the accelerometers:
place it on a level surface and hold disarm for 10+ seconds, you will see the lights flash
-> calibrated :)
do that first
Odd behavior video:
I Dane, I've been watching your video, the "motors" show that all motors are in their propper sequence connected to the APM, however, when at the beginning you try to level the quad via tx stick, it looks like it's arming and not leveling, I believe you have to reverse the yaw control. When you call the "level" with the tx, the APM should continue to blink both green and red for a couple of seconds (+/- 10) and then make the rebooting sequence, with all led off and next quick blink on both until it blinks normally. Yours is not making that, it looks like it's arming, making me believe you must reverse yaw stick.
One way to see if you have brake active on any of the ESCs, would be to remove the props, arm the motors, give full throttle, and then get the trhottle down quickly and see if the motors all stop at the same time or if any of them keep spinning while others are already stopped. It's normal to have some 1/2 second difference in timings, more than that could show that you may have brake active on the ones wich stopped first.
