audrucopter for sale

Purchased last year, but never could get it to work right (I'm pretty sure it was operator error not the quad).   Has the GPS, telemetry, high landing gear.  Don't remember what other options I ordered. Problem with it is two motors have failed (shaft has dropped down, see pictures if they upload). I'm flying a different quad now and this one is just sitting gathering dust.  If your good at putting them together, this should be an easy fix (all motors still spin, just with the way the two…See More

"Michael it sounds like your ESC lost it's calibrations. As we are doing these Assembled kits at jDrones too, we hear this type of beeping a lot.   There are two main reasons for it. 1) your radio calibration in not correct, 2) ESCs…"

"I have never been able to get the "group" ESC calibration to work.  I think doing them individually really takes the slop out and gets them performing equally."

"I was thinking of trying the ESC calibration again tomorrow.  Today I tried the one with all four plugged in (needed the USB attached and the battery) and didn't hear the beeps it said you would hear.   So tomorrow I might try…"

"There has been a lot of progress even in the last couple of versions. So I would update mission planner to the latest version and use it to update the firmware on the quad to .049. Next, make sure you calibrate the ESC's and check the proper…"

"In the set up, it says re remove the props when running it in the set up mode attached to the computer.  That's what I was doing.   I think I have the current Mission Planner, but I don't know what APM version Udrones…"

"Holy Schmokes.... just re-read your post... Please don't try to run the motors with the USB plugged in! This could be dangerous in addition to causing other problems. Again, you should really read the wiki..."

Steve Smetters replied to Michael Snow's discussion Need a little help
"I would really recommend reading the entire wiki on how to set up your new quad copter and install a more recent version of Mission Planner and also update the APM version to the latest 2.0.49. A lot of changes have been made seen Udrones built your…"

Received my arducopter from Udrones all assembled.   Set all the modes to stabalize using mission planner 1.0.77. Didn't seem to want to work, then suddenly when pushing up on throttle motors started and stoped.  Thinking this is a good sign.  Unpluged the USB cable, then battery, and turned off transmitter. Waited a few minutes, then turned on transmitter, plugged in battery.  Now three of the motors beep and twitch (1,2,4) and if I arm the motors and give throtle 3 works. What have I…See More
