Getting towards end of my octo build and just want to double check Im doing the last bits right esp since involving power and Ive read it not hard to burnout if done wrong.
1) 6S Battery
Reading a few threads and wiki it looks like for my 6S battery some modification is needed. So Ive ordered the attoPilot 180A.
This will monitor my 6S whilst a smaller 3s battery powers the Pixhawk and accessories. I'll be modifying the 6pin cable to go to both as per wiki:
2) 8x Esc to Pixhawk. So the 8xEsc I am using has the standard 3 wire (red,white ,black) which would fit into the pixhawk outputs. But from what Ive read I should only connect the red cables to the signal row of the pixhawk outputs. If I allowed all 2 to connect could risk power issue on that rail?
Is that correct?
The only other plug on there is the RC
I have connected my Taranis from X8R sBus to pixhawk RC and that worked instantly, no configuring needed at all, just Radio Callibration and flight mode switches NICE!!
Cheers in advance for the peace of mind :)
