I got my first JDrones and I broken the propeller, I supposed that I did something wrong because the drone was moving all in one side instead of doing the balancing.
I was wondering if you can understand from the video ( youtube below ), what can I do to fix the balancing.
I think so that I didn't followed this step: http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/AC2_Props so my drone is trying to fly in the wrong way.
To make sure that my next propeller is not going to break it, I want to check other things but I dont know what.
You either followed the instructions or you did not? A balanced prop means that the weight of the propeller is the same from tip to tip and edge to edge. You balance propellers to remove vibration. If you did not follow the instructions with regards to mounting the propellers in the correct orientation and order with regards to their direction of rotation what did you think was going to happen? Bottom line go back and follow the instructions there is little room for error if you want to be successful, pay attention to detail.
I followed all the instructions but I missed the step about propeller, I am going to pay attention to these step but I want to know if that could be the only reason of my crash.
Which step mounting or balancing?
I have done all the steps to balancing my motor and setup all the environment.
I am trying to figure out if that movement to the right is due another reason, how can I make sure that the balancing of my drone is correct? When I give some speed to the drone, the motor are running a little bit faster to check if a motor does something wrong.
Okay forget about the prop balancing at this point as an unbalanced prop is not going to make the unit tip over. Start with checking that the motors are turning in the correct direction (check your ESC leads) depending on their location and that the prop you have attached to that motor is producing lift i.e. the leading edge of the prop must be higher than the trailing edge when turning.
Ok I will check it, Thanks
Here are the instructions for a Hex in the plus or cross config:
Thanks but I have an APM1 , so I should follow this one: http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/AC2_Multi
