I have set up a hexacopter with a Matek 743-Wing V3 and Hobbywing Platinum 30a esc. I was following the set up procedure but when I try to test the motors in mission planner, nothing happens.
When it starts, the motors beep once and then don’t beep again. If the esc are unplugged, the continuously beep.
I’m confident in the wiring and was able to get the motors to spin when wired directly to the receiver.
If I had to guess, I have something wrong with my parameters.
Attached should be my parameters list. Any help is appreciated. Chicken.param (19.9 KB)
Hi, I’m still a rookie in Ardupilot but I was wondering if the motors were armed ? Because it seems like the ESCs detect the signal coming from the Flight Controller so I don’t see why it shouldn’t work, unless the motors are disarmed.
I needed to calibrate the escs first. I wasn’t able to calibrate them at first but figured out that I needed to plug in the autopilot, let it start, then plug my escs in to start the calibration procedure.
