Tarot Gimbal on APM 2.6 - Use RC10 or RC11 not RC9?

I have been trying to setup a Tarot Gimbal on a APM 2.6 running 3.2 following the directions at http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/common-tarot-gimbal/.     I can get tilt to work on RC10 and RC11 but not RC9.   I think RC9 is for a relay on APM 2.6, doc was probally Pixhawk specific.   Can some one confirm that RC9 output 0 or 5 volts and is intended for a relay (not PCM)?    Maybe the docs need to updated with notes/directions…See More

"Your ThrIn droped/glitched twice at the end and your log ends while still at altitude.    Seems like a power issue although your VCC looked ok for the rest of the flight."

"The random motor thing is weird, not sure how to incorporate that, but I think it is a voltage cutoff maybe, or a connection or maybe something arcing on the PDB? Do you think you can make a video, happy to help as best I can"

Motor stop at low speed

I have a issue on a Quad with  20amp 3DR ESC (non simonK) and 28-36 750KV motors.    I have never had a issue in flight (50+) flights.    However very freqently one of the motor (not alway the same one) will cut out/stop while spinging up at low speeds.  I have to disarm and rearm to correct.    If I take off quickly I do not have a issue but if I let idle a low speed one motor will stop,   Checked ESC calibration and setings. Tried ESC timming at low, med and high.   Motors start at same time.…See More
