Alexandre Heitor Schmidt replied to Aeropixel's discussion ESC problem? What does this means? in ArduCopter User Group
"Although I have no idea about what that infinite number of beeps actually mean ( :) ), I'd suggest you to take a look at the ESC's manual (if you haven't already done so). Manufacturers generally put on the manual what each number of beeps mean. Goo…"

"Thanks! That helped a lot! But I still can't arm my heli, unless I use mission planner. Maybe if somebody here knows the logic of arming i.e. what PWM values in what channels makes it arm/disarm, I believe it would really be of use for us."
