I LIKE BOOKS WITH LOTS OF PICTURES...
I followed the wiki instructions exacly, but I think I have a warning if you are not bulding an ardu copter specifically!
The wikis are absolutely fantastic, but I have been frustrated by the lack of whole actual full wiring schematics. It really is documented very well and sraight forward in the wikis.
But I have discovered if you follow the wiki wiring step by step, you might run into issues if you are not using the PDB as arducoptor.
I followed the wiring diagrams without thinking how much all the electronics would draw off the one esc I connected to.
I have a hoverthings 550, with 18amp tnigy esc's, and I think I forgot to take into account smaller esc's on my quad...by following the wiki I ended up with this wiring configuration.
I am curious as to how others are running there wiring if anyone is running different electronics off the various escs
For example esc # 1 APM2
esc #2 RX
esc #3 DIY OSD
ESC #4 Go pro usb power
Secondary battery --> Video TX
Secondary battery--. APM RX XBee osd
I understand the concept of noise, and have seen the basic concept drawings, avoising ground loops etc. But I like a good picture to actually wire the entire system together. Can anyone help me put together a decent diagram of how to wire a quad with APM and all the bells and whistles?
