Folks:10 seconds after powering the APM, the right motor starts jittering.When I test this same motor without APM, it works fine. That cancels out bad bullets, bad ESC or bad motor. I have tried a…Continue

About Me:
I live in Toronto, Canada, and I would love to find someone around here who is into this!
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I want to have the most advanced helicam in Toronto and use it in film productions. I have a quad with a GU 344 gyro already working and shooting, but the Arducopter seems really superior. EDIT: really really superior.

Your rate P is far too low. Rate P is directly related to how hard your motors try to keep you level. Your quad looks a bit "lazy".  If the defaults didn't work for you try something just a bit lower.

Don't worry about your Stabilize P until you get this thing behaving more snappy.

Perfect! thank you!

When Rate P was higher it would woobble too much, but i did lower both STAB P and RATE P at the same time.

Thanks again.

Both stabilize and simple mode work flawlessly.


The beast is flying with four 4 cells batteries, 400 gram each. wingspan is 120 cm. Propellers are 14 X 7 3 blades.

Four modes switch for Futaba T6EX

Posted on July 2, 2011 at 2:00pm 27 Comments

The T6EX doesn't have a 3 position switch channel, so I had to combine channel 5 and 6 to get four modes. I made it work with a pot that has double terminals for each knob position, so that way there is always 2 pins to connect cables to for a single position.


Think of this knob as a bridge between same terminals: A to A, B to B, etc, closing the circuit to ground.

Channel 6 is connected to a terminal A and a terminal B from the opposite side.

Channel 5 is…
