Does anyone have any experience using this combo?Good bad or indifferent.Does it play nicely with the Pixhawk? It says the 1280 ESC is optimized for the DJI A3 and N3 flight controllers.The ESC and the flight controllers communicate in real time,…
"Also depending on what flight mode you are in, the controller is expecting to see some movement and if it is not, it gets "confused" and you will have weird behavior of motors.
Try same experiment and move the quad around so the motors react to the…"
What are you using for batteries and what was AUW?
We have been experimenting with stretched r/c helicopters to get the longer flight time but your setup sounds interesting and I'm guessing a lot less money since it won't have a $9000 flight…"
We have been using Arducopter 3.2.1 and log bitmask set to 4100 to just get cam triggers and GPS locations.Has been working great since last year.We are now running Pixhawk 1 with v3.5.1 Octaquad with same 4100 and it only recorded CAM values one…
"Still running 3.2.1.
We had a successful mission with the Octa but I was unable to do an AutoTune because it would put 14.25 values in the Roll/Pitch boxes and when I would try to take off the next flight it would oscillate like mad. I had to…"
"Well that didn't change anything.
It does still supply 5.3 to board, just no amp detection obviously.
I decided to simplify the ship and removed the lower four motors from the equation by unplugging them and removing props. Motors were still…"
"Here is the amp and throttle position graph.
Doesn't look like the amps dropped until I lowered the throttle.
I wonder if the power module is causing it? is it possible to jumper across it and still have 5.3vdc supplied to Pixhawk?
I removed the…"
I am using a RCtimer Pixhawk with RCtimer power module (6S compatible) along with a 750mm X8 frame and DJI E1200 standard propulsion system running on a 6S 10,000 multistar pack.Running 3.3.3 latest firmware.Futaba 8FG controller with 6303 SBUS…
We are using an APM 2.6 to trigger a custom built vaccine dispenser. It is triggering based on distance. It is mounted on an ATV and soon to be on a plane or multirotor. Switching to Pixhawk for those adventures.It is easy to see if the pellets are…
"I will try that it outside right now. My old APM 2.5 with the lea6 would usually get about 4 satellites in my shop so I "assumed" this would. Will see in 15 minutes if anything changes. Thanks for the suggestion."
