3dr Power Module problem


Hi everyone,

does the wiring look correct to you? I just hooked everything up and it short-circuited really bad. Did someone from 3dr solder this incorrectly or was this my fault ? :-(

Help would be appreciated.

Thank you

  • I did inform 3DR and they are sending me a new power module. Can't wait to get it so I can finally "lift off" :-)

  • Thats really a bad mistake, whoever soldered it...

  • Thank you Tim for your reply. Yes the power module came just like this from 3DR. I sadly did not inspect it before hooking it up to the rest of the hexacopter :-( But who would think that something like this would be overlooked in the factory?

    But just to be safe: the red and black cables should not be like this on the 3DR power module, right???


  • If the red wire came to you common with the black wire, there may be a QC issue involved. I'm sorry to hear of your misfortune.
