Hi, I am using arduplane v 4.0.9.
I cannot calibrate my ECS, its a Volantex. Its on channel 3.
I am getting reaction on channel 3 input, and output.
This is clearly visible on the status page in Mission planner.
I have tried do disable the safety switch with arming reqire = 0 since I am indoors.
It’s a Volantex RC 40A Pro Switch-Mode BEC Brushless ESC, the controller is a Pixhawk 4. The transmitter is a Frsky X10 running open TX. The receiver is a Frsky X8R.
I am running telemetry to the X8R, and 433 MHz radio telemetry. I have a voltage/current sensor from holybro, and also the “UFO” shaped GPS receiver.
The plane is a Volantex ranger 2400 with the mentioned ESC/bec that came with the plane.
Oh, I meant channel 3. That gets input and output according to mission planner. Still I can’t calibrate the ESC. I have tried unplugging the power to the ESC ( keeping the Pixhawk powered by the current/voltage sensor board), setting the throttle to full , plugging in the ESC but no luck.
I also have tried to power the Pixhawk by USB, same result.
You have BRD_SAFETY_MASK set to 27 which is 11011. So no PWM output on SERVO3. You have ARMING_CHECKS set to 0 which is not recommended. If you want to disable to Safety Switch (which I personally do not recommend) that would be BRD_SAFETYENABLE set to 0. ARMING_CHECKS does not have anything to do with the Safety Switch.
If this does not solve the issue, please provide a dataflash log so we can diagnose what is happening.
