Can't Get Motors 3, 4, 5 to Work


Thanks in advance.  I have the Y6 complete kit from 3D Robotics that I just finally got around to building. I have an APM2.6 with the external compass etc..  For some reason, I can't get all the motors to spin in test mode through the CLI.  Motors 3, 4, and 5 never come online.  I've checked the connections on the PDB.  I've tried calibrating the ESCs.  Nothing.  What am I missing here?

  • Let's stat with the basics, Did you load he Y6 firmware into the APM 2.6?  Have you done your radio set-up via the Mission Planner software?
