"Hi Forrest, is this something you are still working on. I am involved in a large x8 with staggered front to rear rotor height, and am interested in working with someone to help configure this to fly with ph2.1. We are ready to fly now, but may need…"

"Wow, that will be a monster machine. Are you talking about a 200 lb. payload or gross vehicle weight? If you are talking 200 lb. payload it will be under powered. I figure your motors ,esc's, and 12 s battery for each motor will weigh ~ 100…"

"Thanks Brian, I will be powering the autopilot with 2 separate battery packs, and now that I know about the servo rail, a separate pack for that. I cant go into the details of the x8 we are building yet, but soon I may be able to. I will just say…"

"Jon- If the pixhawk 2.1 is the same as the original pixhawk, then all you should need is a single BEC plugged into any spot on the servo rail in order to power the opto-isolators on the ESCs. If I remember correctly, the main difference between the…"

"Thanks for the reply OG, but we figured it out last night. Rereading setup, and some other blogs, the servo rail isnt powered... the jeti esc's need to see 5 volts to run. Everything is running like it should now, and boy what a noise these big…"

pixhawk 2.1 with jeti spin pro 300 and tmotor u15 no spin up

Hi all, I am new to the forum and about 2 months into a rather large x8 copter.

Has anyone run a large jeti spin pro (mine is a 300 mated to a T-Motor U-15) esc through a pixhawk 2? I can arm the flight controller but cant get any reaction from motors.
