i am trying to set up my copterx 450 with apm 2.6 and have a few things i cannot understand from the help in the next pages:
copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/tradit … cting-apm/
copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/tradit … iguration/
i would be thankful for any help.
in basic configuration and connecting the rx to apm. what should i set to channel 6 ? in the radio …
i am using er9x with dragonlink … i now have a curve -30/-5/30/60/90 which channel 3 as a master, else the collective in the “heli setup” bar will not move at all … but i am guessing here …
in the radio calibration page i run the process few times … but i have only the minimal movemest of servos /swash when moving the pitch / channel 2 on the radio, collective /ailrons / rudder are all working fine.
in the “heli setup” page there is to set the ch8 / motor speed / mode1 / but there is nothing to select from the pull down menu. i looked for something to add to channel8 of the parameters page on configuration … but nothing there looks even remotely related to the helicopter.
i did not understand how to arm the helicopter … the button in the HUD page of MP did arm andthen i could run the motor while collective got up ( without blades ) … ( so is my guess in 1. correct ? ) but moving rudder to right as in the hexa-copter did bot arm.
thank you for any help.
