Hi. My EAST program is working on building an ArduCopter as our big project this year. We have the frame up, but now are starting to run into issues. I have all the battery connections hooked up…Continue
"The first file only consists of this:
ArduCopter V3.1.2 (e2ed3dd1)Free RAM: 65535PX4
The second file does not look any more promising, mainly due to file length.

"No big secrets on researching the logs...
2) Drill down in the picture below...
3) READ and Practice
4) Post the *.tlog files here or at the other more technical forum to get a group mind opinion.
"I will need to do some research into how to obtain the logs. But I will definitely try my best. Would like to know what went wrong.
We are building a frame that is 1150mm from motor to motor, measured diagonally. We hope to get some good…"
"Wow, you are getting the full immersion experience now aren't you?

The 3DR PM combines voltage and current monitoring of the battery (that is what the AttoPilot does) AND 5 VDC supply regulation to the APM.
Are you using the 3DR PM? If so, it may be…"
"Hate to revive this thread, but I need some help. The 3DR Tech help said (like what was mentioned before on here) that the Power Module couldnt handle the 6S battery we were using. Well we bought an AttoPilot 180A to eliminate that problem. i wired…"
"Are all the motors wired so they turn correctly? You should have two pairs of two wired the same ie one set straight left centre right connected direct. Thats for the normal direction props. Two motors where the centres are common and the outers…"
