Looking into the idea of starting arial video productions in Bali. Bought a hexa from Jani end of 2011, had a glitch. Nobody could help me, hexa in closet out of frustration. Want to take it out again and start from scratch ....

"Ellison,
Motors and ESC's were already attached when I received it, and I checked the motors directions one by one and they were according to the props. I didn't check on the heat though after trying .....I will do another test again tomorrow.

Hi again,The next step ....... after assembly and radio control problems, I managed to get my motors to turn.When I tried to lift off for the first time, the hexa just stayed in place, didn't move. So, I thought about all the posts I read on this…

"Hi,
Thanks a lot to Gareth ! I followed your advice to the letter and I managed to calibrate all my ESC's, I think. Although they didn't all react in the same way. Two of the six actually responded immediately to the full throttle when I plugged…"

Hi guys,I have resolved the RC problems. It was a defect receiver in fact, and after changing to a new one, the binding process worked fine, as well as the radio controls calibration. Now the next step : calibrating and arming the ESC's. I think the…

"Don, I always had the very rapid blinking of that blue LED on the board !
So, that means there is radio contact ?
I just did the test with a servo. The receiver was powered I suppose, as there was a red LED blinking. But when I moved the stick(s) on…"

"Yes, I can unplug the ESC's from the board, and the RC cables from my receiver and just power the receiver through the existing power cables with the battery through the hexa (red and black cables), and then connect with the servo on the throttle…"

"OK, Davey, I don't have my hexa here, I will check this all out on Thursday and come back to you with the result. I suppose you mean throttle with THRO.
But, is my setup with lippo and UBEC to power the receiver also good ?
Or, I'm thinking about…"

"Actually, I have a 14,8 V lippo. So please correct me if I'm wrong : lippo to UBEC (to transform to 6 V to power the receiver), UBEC to receiver, receiver to servo. Is that right ? "

"Davey, OK I got a servo. I have 2 in fact to move the gimbal I want to install later. So, I'm supposed to connect the servo to a battery and to the receiver, to see if it works with the transmitter ? "

"Hi Davey, I bought the hexa as RTF ready to fly and I'm a newbee in this matter. My servo's are all connected via soldering on the board, no ? How can I use 1 servo ?  What cables am I supposed to connect where ? Sorry. 

ps : I moved to the forum…"
