I have a Flamewheel F550 and I am having problems setting it up. I searched online and have found no solutions.
F550 frame (hexcopter)
DJI 2212/920KV motor
DJI OPTO 30A ESC
3DR GPS module
Turnigy 5000mhA LiPo
I have very similar problems to this old thread however there are no replies: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1845258
I have to Calibrate the ESC everytime I connect the LiPo battery otherwise the motors won't get armed.
My telemetry radio is not getting connected with the APM mission planner. It is giving the error message "No heartbeat packets received." But surprisingly when i connect the battery with apm and connect 3DR with mission planner without ESC Calibration(i.e when motors are not armed but system is ON) it gets connected and works perfectly....but as soon as i follow the steps of calibration and motors gets armed the telemetry stops working and gives the above mentioned error.
When the telemetry is not connected and the ESC is armed, during takeoff it always leans to the left and fails to liftoff.
Could you please help me.
