Anyone useing futaba radio and sbus receiver able to help me out? Im having a hell of a time. Im not getting any stick inputs to be received. Plugged into the RCin port. Receiver powers up and I know it works as I can plug a servo into it directly. I have tried 7003 and 7008 receivers. This is the stuff that makes me think about DJI controllers. :D I feel like I am missing something simple.
? What is your Arducopter card ?
No sBus in with APM, only PPM
?? Is sBus Rx mode configured ??
See Futaba Rx user manual for that,
Marc, Being new to pixhawk, I am not sure what card it is. I bought it from Jordi at Mrobotics. IM pretty sure its pixhawk and not just APM. My receivers are both configured for sbsus as I have used both of them on my helicopters.
If you google "R7008SB pixhawk" you will find old information with your same problem.
I have a 18SZ (had a 14SG) and I do not use R7008 or 3 sBus2 receivers on my multicopters, but R6202SBW or R6303SB. I have telemetry via 3DR radio.
Problem is (was?) firmware related. Pay attention to use RC in plug on the PixHawk (the first plug), SB is sBus Out.
I have read I think all of those threads. It all appears to be firmware related and I am on the latest one now. I assumed the issues were solved. its just weird. I have never had issues with sbus before.
If you use a T14SG in 14-channel mode there is no SBUS-problem using R7008SB !
People who use SBUS-2 or channel-12 mode on T14SG should start reading manuals etc.
Thanks Ultrafuge. That is one thing I didnt see mentioned anywhere: the whole 12 vs 18 chan. Ill try 18 channel and see. I also found where guys had issues using fassttest vs fasst so I ordered a fasst receiver lastnight to see how that goes. For sure using just SBUS and not SBUS2.
