First of all I have to say that I'm completely new to the RC world.
Today I just finish assembling an quadcopter kit from jDrones. I loaded the latest firmware onto the APM 1 and everything seems to be working fine, but when I try to setup for the first time in the Radio Calibration page, when I move the sticks on my turnigy 9x, nothing happen. I saw that the bars on the wiki page ( what it is suppose to be) is green, but on mine, it's blue. I'm not quite sure what I'm missing here because I've never done this before, but I think I've followed the instruction correctly.
Is there anything extra that I'm suppose to do to make the Turnigy 9X (stock) work with APM1?
Some extra observations:
- I think I have paired the tx with rx correctly since the red light on the rx is solid and only turns on when I turn my radio tx on.
- The blue CPPM LED light on the red APM 1 board flash rapidly at first, but when I start moving the throttle on the turnigy 9x, the led starts to flash slower depending on I far I push the throttle. If I push it all the way up, the led flash very slowly, but if I push it all the way down, the led flash faster.
- The green and red light on the IMU/Oil Pan board flash - Assume that this has nothing to do with rx/tx
Does anybody have an idea about what I could possibly miss or what newbies often miss?
Let me know if you need more information.
