I just tried hooking up my Motors to my pixhawk 2.4.8.
However they don’t want to spin. Neither After arming (which does work) nor with the Motor Test in Mission planner.
I’m actually using 2 Motors in skid steer mode and Set my params to servo1_function=73 and servo3_function=74
Pilot_steer_type=1 and my radio is calibrated.
What Brothers me, is that my esc Outputs 5.5v via the + wire. After connecting the esc to main Out 1 (or 3) the pixhawk will start flashing red and blue instead of just blue.
Whenever I remove the plus wire from the esc, it will only flash blue.
My esc also will beep 3 times according to my battery. But the last 2 beeps are missing.
I’ve been thinking about it being the voltage on the power rail. But can’t pin it down to that. I even used a small resistor to drop the voltage. But that didn’t help.
I’m not experienced with pixhawk or ardupilot whatsoever. So I would appreciate any help
Edit: I did read the ardupilot wiki from top to bottom by the way. However I seem to overlook something.
