I had my hexacopter on the back burner as I put together some wooden arms together for it.
Anyway, I updated the Mission Planner software and reloaded the firmware onto the APM. I did the radio calibration and now my throttle is sort of backwards. Using this page as reference in Mode 2 here are the symptoms:
Shouldn't it be the other way around? As in, I should hold the throttle down and right to arm the motors and then raise the throttle to speed the motors up?
I tried using the reverse button when calibrating. Here's how the sequence went:
This is more as expected except the arming doesn't seem to be in the right position and it skips from no throttle to max throttle.
Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong and how to fix it? Thanks
Instead of reversing on the APM, set the Throttle to reversed on your transmitter.
Thanks! Worked perfectly. Had a successful flight and everything. Just need to tweak the controls so that it flies nicely now.
