Firstly, I'm new to this (oh great I can hear everyone say) haha.... and I'm not asking this because I'm dumb. I'm quite a nerd when it comes to technical things. However as simple as it may seem, I want to make sure I get the connections correct.
I have purchased the DIY 3DR Hex-b copter and I'm putting it together - nearly done too.
However the lack of documentation of how things go together is rather frustrating, because there is so much content that "assumed" in the construction document.
I have a board that came pre-build with 6 ESC xt60 plugs on it, and it's where the main battery goes in to as well. From that, I'm guessing the ESCs little 3 pin plugs get connected to the 6 three pin groups. From there there however there are 6 coloured wires that get plugged it in the Ardupilot board... But to which plugs? Do they going in the Outputs to the first row, the second row, or the third? Is that 6 wire length even required? Or do the ESC 3 pin plugs go straight to the Ardu board?
Unfortunately there is way too many assumptions about the construction of these bad boys. The manual basically just says "connect it". There aren't any hows, or specifics, or colours or anything.
If anyone can point me in the right direction with photos, I'd be very happy. :)
The UK arducopter.co.uk seems to have gone in the last 24 hours, and I was going to use it's great instructions... but I can't now. :)
Loving this little community too. Thanks for your future answers. :)
