"Not to sound negative, but DJI stuff is proprietary and I'd wager your only option is to buy a new radio."

"Hey Clifton! Thank you for that idea with connection of receiver channel 6 and board channel 5. I did can not change PWM value on channel 5 to get different flight modes. So after I've read your message I've tried to connect channel 5 on…"

"Hi Tim I had the same issue. I was able to change the flight mode channel in the Pixhawk firmware but you have to install the Pixhawk Eclipse development environment and change some of the source code. Go into Arducopter Parameters.cpp and…"

DG replied to Tim Pritts's discussion Having major throttle issues with Spider 30A OPTO and Pixhawk- HELP!! in the group PIXHAWK
"I had Maytech ST 30A opto's that would not spin 6 motors. During ESC calibration they worked fine, but in RC mode the motors sounded very sick, probably similar to as described by the OP. I ran some tests, thought I found two (!!) bad ones, got…"

Henri replied to Tim Pritts's discussion Having major throttle issues with Spider 30A OPTO and Pixhawk- HELP!! in the group PIXHAWK
"With opto esc, you have to provide 5 volts on the "servo side" to power the LED of your ESC "opto side " (most of the time) So insure you have a voltage in between the top row marked "-" and the middle row marked…"

"I have got half a solution: In the [AUX-CH] menu set the CH5 setting to "HOV THRO" or "HOV PIT" will allow you to set the Pixhawk flight mode using one of the potentiometers on the top of the transmitter."

"Almost all ESCs have a slow throttle up feature, it is set using the beeps if a programmer is not available"

Tim Pritts commented on Klaus Heinrich's group PIXHAWK
"garvarma, The first time you plug the battery in with full throttle engaged, try not using the safety switch. Just plug in the battery, wait for the tunes to clear, and un-plug battery. When you plug the battery back in the second time, wait for a…"

"it should not harm if you wire it correctly. I had same problem when i powered my FC  from the ESC BEC and the capacitor stabilized the voltage from 0,6V oscilations to 0,25V."

"I am using a PM to power my Pixhawk. I also have a UBEC going into the rail adding a backup to the PM power supply. I'm interested in cleaning this up, will this 470uF capacitor work with my set up?"

Anton replied to Tim Pritts's discussion Need log file analysis help
"Do you power your flight controller with the ESC BEC? If yes then a band aid would be to solder a 470uF capacitor on a servo wire and connect it to a free pin on the FC so it can fix a bit of those spikes of power brown outs. But a fix would be to…"
