I did two successful test flights with RC_01.
It seems all is set correctly. Behavior is as expected (very sensible, but I like that).
Now the questions :
- one ESC does not work (broken ? It does not output any voltage on the motor side; BEC is good instead at 5V). I exchanged it with one laying around. It works, but I prefer to have all ESC the same type. Unfortunately the original is out of stock. Is the one showed on the pictures (Turnigy, probably the same) a recommended substitute ?
- during the flights I had some issues, with motors suddenly stopping (and copter diving :( ; fortunately I was expecting some issue and then flying very low, so no damage).
What is going wrong ?
I noticed that there is another ESC which does not work properly, sometime stopping to work (?!).
I already found a bad solder on a motor connector. I have then to check for them all, but in this case I would prefer to solder my connections myself from start, not having to check for bad solder joints ... or experiencing them during a flight ...
- is NG firmware already flyable, assuming it is a beta (alfa ?) revision ?
This is a starting point.
I have some other questions about stabilization etc, but I would like to check all that better, with flight experience, before asking.
Out of curiosity, 10 minutes of hovering are 2220mAh consumption from a 3300 3S lipo.
