Hey guys I'm having issues with my yaw stick... I have no problems arming the motors however I can't disarm them? Also when I yaw right she will spin right but when i try to yaw left she spins to the right again?
I'm using a futaba t7c tx and every other Chanel is working perfectly. I have tried resetting the APM multiple times as well as re configured the radio settings on the Tx and calibrating it on the board.... I'm still pretty new at this so all help is greatly appreciated
Can you post your radio configuration settings? (what the MP reports when you do the radio config). Sounds like you're outputting some funky rudder stick values.
Connect to the apm in cli mode.
go to test, then type radio.
Numbers should start flowing.
Move yaw stick all the way from left to right and back.
The number in the 4th column should change from -4500 to 4500. If it doesn't your radio is not configured or calibrated right.
ok I got 4263 to 14684?- its my transmitter then?
however when I'm calibrating it it gos from
1333 to 1697
Jeff: those are indeed very funky values. Most transmitters will output ~1000 to ~2000 in setup. Do you have yours in some weird mode? It shouldn't be in any heli mode, and you can turn expo off. Obviously you don't want any mixing, either.
If you can get your TX back to its defaults I think you'll be fine.
I'm not sure what was causing it put i ran the radio test and played with the end points untill i got -4500 and 4500 (ended up being at the exact same points I started with? )
now I can arm and disarm...
