I just built my Arducopter however, when i connect my battery to the set up the escs start beeping indicating there is a problem with the voltage. When i connect the battery to a lipo battery charger i get and error saying the second cell is below voltage (about 1.3v).
I thought it was a faulty battery however i got a second battery (of a different brand) and the same thing happened to the same second cell so I'm wondering if it is possible for the arducopter set up to cause a battery to loose all the voltage in a cell.
What sort of issue could cause this kind of reaction from lipo batteries?
If it helps I got the jdrones kit. Info of my hardware is below
- 4 x Servo motors (850Kv)
- 4 x ESCs (20Amp)
- Zippy 4000mah 40C 3S battery
- AR8000 spektrum RX (connected to the TM1000 telemetry module)
Many Thanks in advance
