"Have you checked the power module under load?
It sounds like the power module is failing when load is applied.
Have you checked the current draw on the power module?
The standard 3DR power module is only rated at 500mA, so a check of the current…"
There is always slight variations in outputs due to variations in the level of the FC.
It's not until it is flying that it can use sensors other than just the gyros, so your best bet is to fly it, after making sure everything moves in…"
"I had a power module blow out and did much the same thing to a Pixhawk.
It would actually still boot and fly quite well, you couldn't connect to it.
I could identify the chip that got fried, the multiplexer I think, but unless you could rework…"
"120A on the 4000mAh30C is right not he edge, you are working it to it's maximum stated capacity.Not a great way to treat the battery and I would watch your discharge and temperatures carefully.
Your 16000mAh10C is rated at 160A so not so bad…"
"Good to see you realised the importance of being able to control the drone manually.
A flight simulator is the easiest, safest and fastest way to get your thumbs in tune with the sticks.And it saves a lot of money in repairs.
There are all sorts…"
"First up, if you are going to 6S then the 3DR power module won't do it, they are rated to only 4S.
Unless you are driving servos from the output rail you won't need a BEC. The power module is rated to 500mA.
When you go to 6S after setting…"
Thanks for sharing your experience with your APM flight controller. I have reloaded the firmware, but I had a major time with setting up the compass. My theory in thought was that it may of been magnitive field from my gimble, because I didn't have that problem until I installed the camera gimble. I completed a couple of flight with no problems unit I made some adjustments to the PID on the gimble after that things changed. I am planning on making a test flight without the gimble
because the gimble took a beating after the crash, but repairable.
