Started this discussion. Last reply by estebanflyer Feb 11, 2012. 8 Replies

Folks:10 seconds after powering the APM, the right motor starts jittering.When I test this same motor without APM, it works fine. That cancels out bad bullets, bad ESC or bad motor. I have tried a…Continue

APM 2.5 doesn't power up

I am connecting the battery as usual and the APM 2.5 is not lighting up. I got home and started disconnecting everything from it and finally it worked. I checked the DF13 6 position connector (voltage regulator) and it seems to be ok. Has anybody had problems with this connector? The cable seems to be firmly attached to the power regulator and the APM... I don't have a reason to distrust it.Thanks guys!See More

I am selling ban new Lotus t580 ready to fliy reliyeble carbon moduler air frame.

I QA Test all t580

turn on filter mean solder the filters on the board? i did that. I will reset to defaults when i get new propellers this coming friday.

thanks for the offer, but I need a heavy lifter!

thanks for replying.

do you have a shop?

At 6:51am on August 9, 2011, OG said…

looks good

The T580 is a heavy lifter designed for photography Payload 500g to 800g : for a still camera or a DV & very light carbon construction position hold, xmode + mode selectable options. I think it could be a weight/power issue as well when I load up my copter it is hard to control it takes a lot of practice.

Hi, 

Your rate P is far too low. Rate P is directly related to how hard your motors try to keep you level. Your quad looks a bit "lazy".  If the defaults didn't work for you try something just a bit lower.

Don't worry about your Stabilize P until you get this thing behaving more snappy.

 

At 2:01pm on September 9, 2011, estebanflyer said…

Perfect! thank you!

When Rate P was higher it would woobble too much, but i did lower both STAB P and RATE P at the same time.

Thanks again.

Both stabilize and simple mode work flawlessly.

Four modes switch for Futaba T6EX

Posted on July 2, 2011 at 2:00pm 27 Comments

The T6EX doesn't have a 3 position switch channel, so I had to combine channel 5 and 6 to get four modes. I made it work with a pot that has double terminals for each knob position, so that way there is always 2 pins to connect cables to for a single position.

 

Think of this knob as a bridge between same terminals: A to A, B to B, etc, closing the circuit to ground.

Channel 6 is connected to a terminal A and a terminal B from the opposite side.

Channel 5 is…
