"Just flipping the tail boom over will not be the solution; while the motors might spin the correct direction the numbering will be wrong from the point of view of the flight controller. You will also have to take the props off as the writing must be…"
"Nope I cannot get this to work. My setup is a Spektrum DMX9 tx with AR9020 rx satellite plugged into a PX4 Pixhawk. The satellite just does not remember the low throttle setting when I go back to the 1100 PWM setting. I have also bound the rx with…"
"The red and black cable will take power to the APM only if you are using ESCs that have BEC (battery eliminating circuits) i.e. they have their own power supply as the ones supplied by 3DR have (look at the white label). The 3DR APMs don't supply…"
"When learning to fly my Y6 I used to get out of trouble by flipping the loiter switch, reorienting and then carrying on.
Hyper bright LEDs mounted on the arms and "tail" are VERY useful.
Learn to fly in Stabilize mode - once you have it nailed you…"
"I have a DJI Wookong M flight controller on my Vulcan. It has 2 output channels reserved for either motors or the gimbal. As the frame has 8 motors I never got to find out what the flight controller did for the gimbal (a HD AirStudio Infinity that…"
"I had a similar problem with my Y6 using the APM. Erratic, it would be OK for many flights then it would dip hard on the left and recover. Caused one hard landing and broken undercarriage. Preceded by a loud ticking sound so I always knew when…"
"Make sure you don't open the DP before you plug the cable to the telemetry radio in. If it opens as a result of you plugging the cable in it should run OK (does on my Xperia Z2). Never got it to run on my Samsung Tab."
I have recently broken 2 legs on my 2013 Y6 (a fixed wing reaction to a rotary wing glitch!). I see from the 3DR site I have to buy a multi part kit of things I don't want to get the legs. Has anyone made up their own? Looks like circuit board…
"You willl need to calibrate your ESCs the manual way. I.e. plug the ESC control directly into the receiver throttle socket. Power on with throttle on the transmitter on full then set throttle to min immediately after you hear the tone. Power off and…"
"The Pixhawk has a buzzer - not sure what it's used for or its range. Risk if you are flying some distance away of not hearing it. I find the telemetry that tells you what the battery % is useless; it cycles up and down during the flight with…"
