Hi Everyone. I’ve decided to build a APM Rover from scratch and so far so good. I have purchased a rover & have successfully added the APM 2.8. I have wired the components as follows:
Because the transmitter is only a 2 channel I have now ordered the Flysky FS i6 for more channels to also provide the option to switch to auto mode once I setup a flight plan on Mission Planner.
What I’ve noticed is that it says on many tutorials that you can’t power servo’s and ESC’s through the APM but oddly enough I’m able to do this. Is this normal?
When I use power from the lipo battery directly into the ESC which then powers the APM it doesn’t function as well as when I power everything via the APM “which like I said you shouldn’t do”
I’m wondering why this is happening?
Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance
