The lesson here is: to set up a flight controller with ArduPilot firmware, read the ArduPilot documentation. If you’re trying to set up a flight controller with PX4 firmware, ask for help on the PX4 forum. Mixing and matching just leads to confusion/frustration.
Note that Pixhawk4 and PX4 are not the same thing. One is hardware, the other is a software project.
So after I set the MOT_PWM_TYP to 4 like I already did, how do I get the FC to treat the AUX channels as MAIN channels? I still need the parameter SYS_USE_IO and I can’t find that anywhere and there are no instructions on what to do otherwise
If I buy a 4 in 1 ONE SHOT esc board, will I have to any configuring with parameters that aren’t there? I already have $2500 put into this thing what’s another $50, right?
If I purchase the TCMMRC 50A AIO BLHeli_S 4-in-1 ESC 3-6S Electronic Speed Controller that Supports DSHOT1200/600, PWM, Multishot, Oneshot for FPV Racing Drone Quadcopter. will I be on the right track?
I think there’s a whole lot of confusion here. In Ardupilot you can just set the function for the output to whatever you want. ServoN_function (where N is a number) is the parameter, so for the outputs you want to use set the function to be whatever motor you need it to be.
I need my question answered. If I buy a 4 in 1 esc board that runs one-shot. Will I be able to wire it up and fly it without having to do goofy things with the configuration? I can get one for $45. will that solve my problem?
In order to run DShot with the FC I have to reconfigure the AUX channels to act like the MAIN channels. main channels won’t run on dshot. And the parameter to do that is not in the list of parameters on any of the software. Not in Mission Planner and not in QGround Station, so I’m just saying eff it. and going a different way. I just wanted to know if I’ll be beating my head against a wall for another 4 months
All you have to do is set output 9,10,11,12 to option 33,34,35,36 and turn on the dshot settings for the esc. A solid 5 mins process. But the param you are talking about is not apart of mission planner or QGC they just read the data, your flightcontrollers software is what has the param. If its running arducopter we can help and easy to setup. But again what are you running? px4 or ardu?
