I am having issue with my copter flipping as soon as I throttle up. I have confirmed the motor and the propeller configuration and can only think it may be the ESC Calibration.
I calibrated using “Normal” ESC Type and now starting to wonder if it is right.
I have LHI Simonk 30A ESC. How do I know what ESC Type that is?
Thanks in advance.
Those are plain vanilla PWM. Set MOT_PWM_TYPE to 0 (normal).
It’s almost always motor order or prop direction causing this. Double check with Motor Test in Mission Planner
You response is much appreciated.
I have done motor test where clicking “Test Motor A” drives “Motor 1”, B drives 2, C drives 3 and D drives 4.
Also, I can guess the motor spin and propeller are correct since the air blows down when I click on any of the “Test Motor”.
My configuration is as follows:
That is incorrect. Read the note about order on the Mission Planner motor test page.
Clockwise from front right.
Hello, sorry for jumping in but I al so have a question regarding how to chose the ESC types.
I purchased the low cost standard “brushless motor + esc + propeller set”. The motors are the typical Brushless 1000kv A2212
The ESC specs are:
Output: 30A continious, burst 40A up to 10 Secs.
Input V: 2-4 lipo battery or 5-12 cels of NiCd/NiMH
BEC: 2A/5 V (linear mode)
What Type of ESC should I select in Mission Planner, the option that says “Standard” or “one-Shot”, or other?
Advice would be greatly appreciated.
