Re: one of the motor stops after increasing throttle

Ok I re-calibrated the ESC using the cleanflight application built-in functionality, but it did not solve the problem... I remember it was possible to calibrate the esc also using the RC directly ( that's what I did the first time watching this video: m ), but the strange thing is that it seems the ...

one of the motor stops after increasing throttle

hi guys, I have problems with one of the motors and would like to see if you have some suggestions for me. As you will see in the next video, the top left motor stops spinning, after increasing the throttle. If I test the motors under cleanflight or baseflight, they spin with no breaks. Do you have ...

Re: motor does not spin after fpv system installed

Ok I swapped D3 (on which there were the working esc and motor) with D9 (to which the new esc and motor were attached). the motor that was on D3 spins correctly. the motor that was on D9 is still not spinning, confirming (I guess) that the motor has a problem. Just to be sure I want to desolder and ...

Connect the esc direct to the Rx and test if it works then.


Hi Patrik. I'm not sure I understood how to do that. How can I connect the esc directly to my radio controller? (sorry for the noob question, but I'm really new to all this )

ah... :shock: To verify that, can't I just try to hook another working esc+motor in place of the non-working esc+motor and see if it spins?

motor does not spin after fpv system installed

m Hi there, I proudly set the fpv system on my drone and it is working pretty well, except that the right bottom motor does not spin anymore. I know the two things should not be connected, but maybe they are because of how I "gave power" to the fpv tx and camera. First of all, all the ecs ...

I tried to comment that line as you said, but still I'm not able to arm the motors.

Could it be something linked to the Fly Sky TX?

Re: my drone does not fly

Yes,

I will never forget this lesson.
Today hopefully I will be able to set the right PID values at the park. The drone is flying (at the end I tried indoor) and although there is still a yoyo effects, it is not that bad. As soon as I will have a stable drone, I will post a new video.
