I am just about done putting together a Hexacopter using my own parts. I have connected all of the BEC to the Output of the ArduPilot like mentioned in the APM2 Motor Order Documentation (http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/APM2_Motor_order).
When I test each motor all but motor #3 spins in a counter clockwise motion. The documentation says that motor #1 and #6 need to spin clockwise as well. Is there something I need to do to switch how the motor rotates? I would assume this would be controlled by the Output number the motor goes to, but I dont really know.
I also see mention of using a pusher propeller on the clockwise rotations and a normal one on the counter clockwise. I bought the 7x6E propellers. Do i have to buy special propellers?
Please let me know.
