I recently assembled a quad with ardumega board and tried to do a test flight, got it off the ground and the copter spins to the left with no yaw controll. It is in the x configuration. I had checked motor rotation. Prop orientation and all seem ok.
Not sure what is going on with this.....................?
Any ideas?? Possible motor controls mixed up?
PS like in the video, but not so drastic.
Wow, nobody has any ideas ????
Well I wiped the processor clean and reinstalled the program, rechecked all the input, outputs, calibrated the esc's and am going to try to get this up this weekend.
Actually I am now having the same problem.
I am sure it was not doing this yesterday.
Tried to fly today and it just starts spinning counter clockwise.
I have no idea.
I am flying a quad in x configuration. As for the motor outputs, I have the older board that starts at 0-7 from rh to left looking at the pins. o pin is rh arm 1 is oposite arm, 2 is lf arm and 3 is the opposite of that arm.
I found out that the radio controls are backwards, I found that in acro mode. When I switch to stabalize the copter is not flyable, I found one motor getting hot and stops right after I pull throttle out so I feel that is one of the big problems. I need to fix that first then go back to figuring out the rest.
As for the rotation on the props, I have a few other quads and know how to set that up and confirm.
I know you've said that you've checked motor directions etc. but have you tried the CLI "Motors" command to make sure the motor numbering is correct?
I have checked and re calibrated radio and ESC's
I have done the motors CLI test and all is OK.
Assuming one motor is down on power and it spins counter clockwise I should be able to narrow it down to two out of four motors.
So for a counter clockwise spin which two should I look at first?
OK I have tested with a different oilpan and my problem goes away.
Must be a problem with my oilpan or compass.
I will let you know what I find but not sure that it may help you sorry.
I hope its not my oil pan , I dont have another.
how do I look at raw sensor values??
