Hi All,I'm building an RCexplorer style Tri with a AMP2.5, Turnigy9x (in airplane mode) and all the other HK.com stuff I need. I'm running Arducopter V2.9.1b and everything seems to work great…Continue

"I solve the problem. The APM 2.6 needs an extra power source to power the servo. You can also short JP1."

"I haven't tried another servo yet, I can do that when I get home. The servo has ground power and signal wires all connected to the AMP. I do doubt that it is a problem with the servo though as the mission planner shows that it is not…"

"I've got 1-4 set up for RPYT but I don't have any of the other channels connected at all. Mission planner shows the correct bars moving when I move the corresponding sticks on my Tx. Could the problem be that I don't have the other…"

"make sure you have your receiver connected correctly to the apm. Channels 1-4 are for roll pitch yaw and throttle. I use 5 to control the mode. 6 and 7 control camera point on my gimball"

"I armed the AMP using both the Tx and through the mission planner and tested the servo with the motors spun up to about 25% and at 0% throttle. In all cases the mission planner showed no output at all on RC7 and the servo never moved.  It…"

"I'm running 2.9.1b.  Works fine much better than the previous versions.  Output 7 is the correct connection for the servo. Did you arm the APM?  My servo only moves when the APM is armed.  When disarmed the servo is…"

"Thanks for the reply, What firmware version are you running? I may try to load an older firmware and see if something is broken in 9.2.1b. The servo is powered from the BEC of one of my ESC's and I confirmed it was getting power (both with my…"

Initial Tri Setup - No Yaw servo response

Hi All,I'm building an RCexplorer style Tri with a AMP2.5, Turnigy9x (in airplane mode) and all the other HK.com stuff I need. I'm running Arducopter V2.9.1b and everything seems to work great (Pitch,Roll, throttle), except the yaw servo. In failsafe there is no output to channel 7 no matter the Yaw input from the Tx or movement of the AMP.I'm hoping there's some setup step I missed somewhere but I've been through most of the relevant wiki pages an nothing seems to pop out at me.Hope some one…See More
