ok i have all the motors working and spinning in the correct direction. I had to swap some of the leads from the esc to the motor.I know have all motors spinning. I have the ESC calibrated. Now if i could get my phone to focus on the laptop screen so i could show you the output from the radio to what the motors are actually spinning. The only time i have full control ( what i mean is making the motors spin very very slow to very very fast ) is when i am in the calibration mode or when i have the esc and motor connected directly to the receiver.
Yes has been calibrated through mission planner.
I just want to throw this out there. Thank you guys very much for being so patient with me. This is my first build and i have realized that i am a little quick to post a question and then it seams like i figure it out mostly on my own.
I am going to try and make a video of the input on mission planner to show you with the throttle and the motor output.
Video . first one is during the esc calibration, last part is after calibration is finished and it is relying on the apm to control the output.
Let me repeat for clarification - I am no expert. In fact I was about where you are six months ago.
A screen photo would tell me next to nothing as I have so little experience reading logs and graphs from our machines. But instead of taking a photo why not simply do a screen capture?
From the video, I am tempted to say that this looks normal. Here's my speculation: You don't need low-speed control if there's no hope of lifting the copter, so why waste that much throttle throw? Additionally if the throttle PWM goes low, as if you lost radio contact, the APM goes into FailSafe. You certainly don't want to be able to throttle down into failsafe. On my hex I get liftoff with about ten percent of the throttle and hover at about 45%. If I ever went full throttle, this thing would disappear like a rocket. If I am wrong, I hope that someone would correct me, but as I said, this looks normal to me.
