I have a 3Drobotics Y6 copter with Pixhawk.
I am relatively newbie to quads. This is my first big drone.
I am done with assembling the hardware and while calibrating the hardware in Mission Planer 1.2.93 i encountered issues with Radio Calibration. Everything else calibrated properly.
I have a FlySky FS-TH9X transmitter and a FlySky FS-R8B 8 channel 2.4GHz receiver.
The transmitter is bound to the receiver, i can drive servos with it.
The receiver is getting power from the Power distribution board and the receiver's channel 1 is connected to Pixhawk RC IN.
The Pixhawk Main Out Signal pins are connected to the Power distribution board Motor outputs (six colorful wires).
Does my receiver support PPM? Do i need a PPM converter?
Any ideas what I am doing wrong?
In the meantime I tried three different receivers all binded to the transmitter and working with servos on the individual channels.
Than I installed APM Planer on my Mac too. I Installed the Firmware again and tried to Calibrate the RC when i start the calibration the green levels show up on the grey bars for a flash second than they are empty and all the values are 0 on the end of the calibration.
My transmitter signal pin outputs a voltage between 0.29 and 0.34 V.
Any help would be appreciated.
Yes, I needed PPM converter between the Pixhawk and the FlySky FS-R8B 8 channel 2.4GHz receiver.
Yes, that's correct.
I did check and you do need a converter...when you get one did press the arm button before trying to calibrate I spent ages with this issue until I read a post some where.
I cannot get my PPM converter to work.
I have followed the videos but no luck
this is the converter I am using with my FS-R8B
I've tested hitting the arm button prior to calibration and this does not seem to have any effect
