I am a little confused why I can't get the quad rotor of my Quad Plane working. I have four Hacker motors installed on my fixed wing Anaconda with 4 Castle ESCs.
As per the instructions I have the motors plugged into channel 5 thru 8 on the pixhawk. Channel 1 is aileron, channel 2 is elevator, channel 3 is throttle and 4 is rudder. 5 thru 8 are the quad rotors. The Red wire from the ESCs are cut due to each power lead from the ESCs goes into one PDB which is powered by a separate battery.
I have two batteries. One plugs into the Power Module for the pixhawk which then goes into the Pusher Motor ESC. Of course the ESC is plugged into Channel 3 for the throttle and the power module is plugged into the pixhawk. The other battery goes to the PDB for the quad rotor motors.
I put Arduplane 3.6 on the pixhawk and after that was done I enabled Quadplane mode. I then refresh the params so I can see all of the Quadplane params. I then moved onto ESC calibration. I followed the instructions to enable q esc calibration. During the process I can not get the outputs on Channels 5-8 to change. My R/C remote is on Q_Stabilize and the plane is armed and I can't get the values to change. It is seeing the Input of the TX but it is doing no output. It holds at 1000 for each channel 5-8.
When I plug in the pixhawk then plug in the quad motors they make their normal beeping sounds. When I arm the quad rotor and pusher motor they make the activating sound, but I can't get it to work with the throttle stick on Q_stabilized.
You can however go to the Servo menu page and toggle each motor and they will make a chirp sound and barely spin.
What am I missing? It seems to be a setting somewhere not allowing the Quad mode to fully activate. This has been a huge puzzle for me and I can not figure this issue out.
Thanks for the help.
