Hey guys so I’ve been gone a while about 9 months and have decided to get back into it and get my quad flying again. Here is a quick rundown on what I got.
Frame is a modified X650F from hobbyking. Modded to where I run 15in props on it and also run it on 6s. I use Afro 30a ESC flashed with BlHeli. PIxhawk FC, Frsky x6r RX, Taranis, Motors are Turnigy Multistar 4114, 330kv.
I updated the pixhawk to the most current FW last night and went back through the setup. My ESC’s are oneshot capable but I have it set to regular PWM mode. If oneshot is enable I get the issue where it takes a while to arm and different motors arm and different times.
So here is what I got going on. Took it out last night to get an autotune in hoping I wouldnt have problems well, armed it and started to increase throttle as soon as motors start to spin it did a back flip and broke a prop. Put a new prop on it. hooked it up only to 3s and took it outside again. Armed and started to increase throttle again and noticed that one of my motors were not spinning as fast as the others. So I picked it up off the ground and held it in the air and increased throttle again, I could feel the front wanting to pull away from me but the back was a different story.
No I am here writing this post. I had a suspicion that I have some bad ESC’s but am not totally sure. I’ve included a dataflash log you can see where I picked it up and I never provided any other input but throttle. Tried all of this in stabilized mode. Please help, this was the reason I took a break 9 months ago. Just go so irritated with it that I had to. Thanks in advance for any help you guys can offer.2017-04-16 13-57-20.bin (1.3 MB)
