Although, I see much more sensible as Jason's procedure.
I think that should replace the current yellow square.
I have a 1280 1.4 board as well. Just got a 2560 but using it in a funjet so maybe i'll swap the two and see.
as per the previous post - this warning in the Wiki is confusing at best and may actually not be giving the correct advice.
I think it would be most fair to many off us who have come from other platforms to post a fair warning about the USB and battery issue instead of the above link
Thanks for every answers.
Ok. I alwais disconnect CES while I use USB but if I want to configurate the transmiter the CES have to be connected. Can I calibrate the transmiter with Ces disconected? This could be the solution.
Fah Pah kit ESC
smoked one motor after a second or two of jittering, the motor continued to work for several flights after this, but eventually died. I do not recall what arm it was on.
I think that there is no reason some boards do have the problem and others do not have it.
I feel that all boards have the problem, but only some users are seing it because they have unprotected ESCs or because they always disconnect ESC power or PWM inputs before uploading firmware.
For me, on a 2560 board, i always see heavy noise on PWM outputs during firmware upload ( can be checked connecting servos on those outputs) :
During upload, CH3 PWM output is targeted
During verify, CH4 PWM output is targeted
I see as well some noise and large PWM signal excursions when rebooting the board.
where did you buy those indicators?
or are they self made?
Sorry, but what's wrong with bullets?
I thought they were bullet proof reliable.
Shall I concern about them?
Bullets are only as good as your soldering of them. Some people are great at soldering them, others get flux on the shaft or don't realize that the ROHS cables have lead-free solder that melts 100 degrees higher than leaded solder, so they end up with a cold solder joint where the two solder types meet.
It's also possible to have low-quality connectors that simply don't fit right, but that isn't the issue with the official gear.
