What do you think now?
What do you mean by "a little"? The motor test is supposed to spin the motors for a short period of time each in succession, with a regular delay in between. If you motor is starting an stopping intermittently, then there is a problem.
They run for a little time, short period of time. Just 2 motors spins. All cables are OK. So what's problem here?
I see this data in MegaPlanner:
Is it normal?
No, it is not. On a level surface without any motion or vibrations, and motors not running. The lines should be flat.
What's wrong so? It's flat surface, no motion no vibration
Mark, get in touch with someone more experienced.
But here are some links you might want to look at:
As to why a single ground point in high current systems, google "power supply design"
English isn't my first language, I sometimes have difficulty get my thoughts across.
Yes, that's not my problem, see my last 3 comments. It's further than that problem. I have seen those pages and obeyed all instructions there already
I have the same problem... I'm uploading a video right now.
Hope someone will find the problem..
Great! May some one solve the problem. I know a lot of more people looking for same solution. Just some lucky people get it working
Ok, folks. With so many people seemingly having these flipping problems, I would like to use this discussion to focus attention on the issue. I don't rule out software or hardware problems, but it can cause by your particular configuration.
Please post the logs, downloaded using the Mission Planner, Terminal->download logs function, that they can be analysed.
I already sent them to this thread, please tell me what you think about mine.
I currently have no logs because i dont have an Xbee conected to my ArduCopter, i will try flying it with USB connected.
But here is the video:
