Hello, fellow members of the community,
I have a problem with lifting my copter from ground. My setup is an APM 2.6, a DJI F550 frame (clone), six (obviously) 2212/920KV motors, an FLYSKY FS-i6 controller with a FS- IA6B receiver, an 4000 mAh battery and an external gps module with external compas. I ordered everything (except battery) on aliexpress. link: https://goo.gl/o25fvd
The problem I am facing is similar to several cases on this forum thread. But the answers weren’t clear enough for me. Because I have an APM 2.6, I can only install AC 3.2.1. To set up my copter I use Initial Setup>Install Firmware and after choose the hexacopter icon. I follow the instructions step by step, but my copter wont arm (3D NoFix and much more strange things). I solved it once by going outside, where the GPS can get my location. But these settings wont save and therefore I am left with an disarmed hexacopter, which drifts right at liftoff.
Its really frustrating, because I can not find anywhere a solution for my setup. Many people have similar problems but they a PixHawk or a newer version of APM and another flight controller. For example one suggested to solve the problem by configuring the 7th channel. Yes, it would have been helpful, if i had channel 7
Please help me, because I dont know what to do. If necessary, I will show photos of my setup and videos of the incidents. All logs from today are here, if you need something else, please let me know.
