Pixhawk 2.4.8, ESC 4 in 1, Flysky 10 channels - Servo lag and can't fly (tip over)


This is my 1st quadcopter that I am building. I 3D printed the T4 Quadcopter on thingiverse. I calibrated the ESC and the servos seems to be of the same rpm when I click Test in MP. I connect the 10 channels FS-i6X with the FS-iA10B through the i-BUS port to the RC-IN port. I did not use the PPM encoder. This allowed me to control all 10 channels and calibrated in MP without lag.

However, when I Armed and the props start spinning, as I increase throttle, the quadcopter starts tilting forward and broke a propeller… So I changed the Layout from X into V. This caused it to tilt sideway! The T4 quadcopter is not exactly X or V. It’s straight on the back 2 and V on the front 2.

(2), When I put it back into 0 throttle, the light on the Pixhawk continues to flash yellow, but I can no longer control any throttle. No response unless I unplug and replug the battery, rearm, and then it will start from the beginning.

(3) When I increase throttle, it doesn’t accelerate right away, it takes like 1s. Same thing with decreasing throttle.

Can someone please educate me as I have no idea what I am doing?

Thank you so much!

Note: I calibrated the 4 in 1 ESC with Dshot 600 (which it states it supports)

I wasn’t able to connect BL_Heli_S. the Chrome version of Configurator could not read any data.

EDIT #1: the ESC 4 in 1 has wrong labeling for motor 1-4. 2 and 3 were swapped. I wasn’t aware :expressionless: Will re-install props and test.

EDIT #2: When I armed it and in Stabilize mode, it will spin up for a couple seconds, but if I don’t increase the throttle, it will trigger Failsafe (yellow flashing light). How do I avoid this? The battery is fully charged, changed the throttle minimum to 925 but the minimum at throttle 0 is at 1000?

Edit #3: Failsafe is due to Battery…

Edit #4: still not working, forgot to take the prop off while hitting ESC calibration. 6 fingers got cut and 15 stiches…

Sorry to hear about your injury. An X configuration should work for that frame generally called a Dead Cat. Select Dshot150 max. You don’t need to perform ESC calibration with Dshot. Use Mission Planner Motor test to confirm proper motor order and direction.

This sounds a whole lot like the Elevator channel needed to be reversed IN THE RADIO. I can’t tell you how many times I have seen this…
