Where do you find the settings in MP ft modes

Comment by Mark Aylward on October 27, 2014 at 1:34pm

ok so now I am stuck at getting the R7008sb to talk to PixHawk for my initial set-up.  Do I get a PPM encoder and use the 8 ports into PixHawk vai the encoder or is there another solution yet?

HI All
I am new to RC and need some help. I have had problems setting up my TX (Senior Moment).
Now using a EEPE file I got from friend that works. But some settings don't thats why i would
like to find a file that someone is using on their Hex.  Maybe they will share the file with me.
If it works for them it will for me as well with the equipment as i have.
Any and all help would be greatly be appreciated.

@Austin

I recently had an issue where checking the reverse box [ in AMP Planner ] didn't reverse it as it should but if I did so in the full param list it did. 1 is normal  -1 is reverse.

Problems/issues drone quadricopter using 2.5 AMP last step "SETUP ALL IN ONE ESC"

I just finished calibrating the setup and installation of a drone quadricopter with APM 2.5. with Mission planner last version.

How do the tuning "all in one of the 4 esc" everything works perfect truttle and left control of movement.

But as I go back mode 'normal I have serious problems on the speed' minimum or zero drone quadricopter better with truttle a low position to zero.

anyone has any suggestion?

Thank you for vs time and congratulations to the whole community '

Bye Paul

PS ** I hope I have posted in the forum corrected the problem thanks again to all a good weekend;)

Hi all, I am starting a project where I want to add two pusher propellers to an X octocopter configuration.

I wonder if anybody can give me his opinion on the feasibility of doing this on Arducopter.
