Futaba - motors won't arm

Greetings...  I just bought a new Futaba T8FG Super. After going through the process of setting it up with APM 3.0.1 , the ESC's/motors wouldn't arm. I checked off everything in the troubleshooting guide down to calibrating the ESCs, which I did using the "all at once" method. When I was instructed to bring the throttle down, and then apply it to turn over the motors, it worked!..... but, after I unplugged and replugged the LiPo as instructed, once again they wouldn't arm. I went through the process 3 times with the same result. (signal transmitting & receiving, radio calibration sucessful in the MP, accept throttle is also affecting the channel 6).   All was working with my old TX, just updated to this one.

I'm stuck, help appreciated !

  • I also have that radio. Not sure if this is your problem but I've found in most cases I have to reverse the transmitter's throttle output in order to get it to properly work with whatever I'm flying. Seems to to be something common with Futabas.
