I have some questions, but first let me tell you what I have done so far. I have my arducopter assembled, all ESC’s calibrated with the following calibration:
ESC Tower Pro w25 settings Brake-off, Battery type-Li-Poly, Cutoff Mode-Soft, Cutoff Threshold-Medium-High, Start Mode-Normal, Timing-Medium.
Motor-Turnigy 2217 20turn 860kv 22A Outrunner Motor spacing is about 51cm
APM and IMU Fatubu T6XH radio with 4500mAh battery.
My questions are:
Are the ESC setting correct for theses motors and application?
What mode should I start off with to try to get it in the air for the first time?
What PID settings to start off with?
Thanks for any help,
Hi Scott, I have the same Turnigy 2217 20 turn 860 kv 22A Outrunner Motor. When I connect the ESC's and battery etc, the cables connected to the motor spin WITH the outside out of the motor as the cables are connected near the shaft. Does this make sense? How did you resolve this issue ?
These two images show the cables moving whilst the motor is spinning...
