I think I know the answer to this but I'd appreciate a second opinion before stripping down... Fah Pah ArduCopter kit, ready for first flight, everything working well except occasional 'clicks' from…Continue
"Really impressive work - I love the combined transmitt module, lovely work.
When I looked at the 868Mhz xbees a long time ago they alway had a duty cycle issue - is that gone or do you work around it/ live with it
"I don't have a 9X so sorry can't help with programming it but something basic must be wrong if the servos don't move.
In you picture you still have the bind plug in - have you removed that now?
"When you plug the servos in first time they will centre to their 'neutral' position, that is normal.
If you can't get the servos to move when you move the transmitter sticks then the first problem is between your transmitter…"
"S=signal, the PWM signal that controls the servo or ESC
It can go on any unused pin on the output rail.
The other end goes straight to the battery - you would normally put a connector on it to match up with your battery.
"Finally back up and running with ASM !
I accidentally ripped the keyboard connector off the main board taking the tracks with it (these connectors are extra delicate on the ASM)....
Nasty repair with some enamelled wire and secured with…"
"After a repair of the keyboard connector (a bit nasty as it lifted the tracks on the board) I get this on power up:
Is that the display f/w creating the display or is that Ardustation?
"Duuh...updated drivers and now see ASM fine, I was working on a fresh Windows 7 and didn't have the Arduino IDE installed (which has the correct usb drivers).
While re-connecting keyboard I managed to rip off the IC2 connector -…"
"@Harry, get on to Jani/Jdrones as Tom suggests, your order must have been lost - I ordered mine last week and got it this week with free shipping to UK which as much quicker than expected.
I'm having mixed results in the early stages:
- got an…"
"Mine arrived today, thanks Colin & Jani - looks good.
The board is marked v1.4, the capacitor on the power board is the right way around. Boots up with 'jDrones ASM v1.1' firmware.
One got ya so far - there is no xbee socket (there…"
