I bought an APM 2.6 from 3DRobotics 2 weeks ago. I finally got around to putting it in a hexacopter.
I have a question regarding the connections of it because it seems to be dead and not working.
I have Hobbywing 30A ESC's.
So when connecting everything is this the correct way?
Battery to Power Module, power module to distribution board, distribution board to ESC's, ESC's to motors.
Then the Power module has the little connector that plugs into the PM port on the APM 2.6.
Then the little 3 pin connectors from each ESC goes to the outputs on the APM 2.6 in the correct order.
The receiver gets jumper cables from outputs 1-4 and a few other for misc switches to the APM 2.6 inputs.
Is this the correct way? Because doing it this way seems to have burned the APM 2.6 up and it won't turn on anymore.
Do the little 3 pin connectors from the ESC need to be changed to only 1 or 2 pins?
I'm kind of confused because on the Wiki I read all this stuff about servos but I'm not using servos, just ESC's to motors.
