I was having problems arming my ArduCopter. This is how I was finally able to get them going.

It should be noted when arming the motors you have to press right on the rudder/throttle WAIT (About 2 seconds) and then throttle up a little past 50% and HOLD there for about 5 seconds. I also wait for the GPS to get a lock before I attempt to start.

My experience arming the motors by moving the throttle right then quickly to the 50%+ mark never started the motors.

Hope it help with anyone having difficulties.

I'm topping off the LIPO and next stop first flight.

Weird, I've never had that experience.  For me it's always, hold the throttle down, then hold rudder to the right for about 5~6 seconds...

Steven, I think something is wrong with your setup.  That's not how the program is supposed to work.

Are you flying a quad or a heli?

That is still how my arducopter is functioning. The setup is from udrones. It is also worth mentioning I start with the rudder/throttle centered and at 0% throttle and not centered/centered.
