"noob here but I seem to recall a similar story sans ubec, in which a separate power supply for the board was the solution. It may be worth a search until someone with real knowledge can advise. "

Controlling a multicopter

I just finished creating my first quad. I am using a th9x to quad for control and two xbee pro for telemetry to pc. I am wondering about using the xbee's grater range to control the copter from pc, using the keyboard. Ultimately I would like to use a usb game controller or better a bluetooth, one like say the wiimote. If anyone can help point me I would be most aprecitive. I also wanted a place to find out how all of you are currently controlling your apm 2's. Soo... what are you using?See More
