Hey DIY Drones community,
I'm a newbie in the RC and UAV domain, but I really wan to learn :)
This is why I've recently bought a ready to fly plane from 3D Robotics (https://store.3drobotics.com/products/3DR-ARF-APM:Plane).
I'm still in the process to understand how everything works, and I'm stuck with my RC controller. I've bought the Spektrum DX6i controller but I don't know how to connect it to my apm board (see picture). It must be something very simple but I could find the answer on the web or on youtube.
Thanks for any help.
Thanks for the advices about the sailsafe configuration.
I really want to se my UAV fly but I know as wel that I still need to improve my knowledge and my skills.
So it will wait a couple of weeks. I don't understand yet all the subtilities of the mission planner software and I don't want to loose my plane :)
thank you very much, i like your article
Good News, I've finally succeed :)
I've used the "thro" wire from my plane to power up the Rx.
I didn't do that in the beginning because the wire don't fit perfectly to the receiver and I had to force a bit to put i inside.
But after that I've been able to power up the Rx and I saw the orange light. I waited until the light stop to blink and that's all :D
Thanks again for all your answers.They have been really helpful !
Have a good day.
