Clifton Hipsher replied to Abhirami's discussion PX4 compatibility with different ESCs
"Don't even think about using SimonK.  With the exception of Little Bees (which are horribly noisy in RFI), jut about any ESC that uses BlHeli will work.  ArduCopter 3.5.5 and higher support BlHeli. "

Clifton Hipsher replied to jj's discussion I can´t configure esc with pixhawk. in the group ArduCopter User Group
"First off, props off bench testing using the radio is totally useless.  When you arm the motors the PID controllers are ACTIVE.  Pixhawk is trying to control an aircraft that is not flying and the motors will behave erratically. Second,…"

"@Nicholas: Because no two aircraft are ever exactly alike, the sharing parameters and settings is ill advised. What is the nature of your problem?"

"If you invoke during Loiter, the aircraft will stay roughly in place.  If you invoke during PosHold, the aircraft will twitch roll in place for a bit, then it will yaw left 90 degrees and it may move forward a few meters.  It will twitch…"

Clifton Hipsher replied to churl11's discussion Stablize is OK, Loiter with forward speed will have a severe vibration in the group ArduCopter User Group
"The side arms are too long.  This non-standard configuration confuses the firmware and I'd wager this could be the source of the high vibration levels."

Clifton Hipsher replied to Tom's discussion Pixhawk is not sending chanels into QGroundControl in the group PIXHAWK
"Pixhawk should be fine with either S.Bus or CPPM, so either you have the input cable 180 out, there is an open between the Signal wire and the Signal pin on the RCIN port, or the RX is just bad..."
