After successful testing a single copter with electric motor I have converted it into a gas powered version. What settings should I change, or options should I use, especially for controlling the carburetor throttle?
I’ve set low and high Servo5 limits to cover the throttle range from stop to stop of the carburetor, but I damaged the throttle servo already. Reason being - before ESC is armed the Servo5 PWM is set to 982 by default. Even after it is armed it will stay at 982 I believe.
Obviously there is no ESC in a gas engine so I don’t want this default, or want to be able to set it to the Low servo limit which in my case is 1040.
I already switched option 37 to 70 for Servo5 (from Motor 5 to Throttle function) in the Advanced Settings, but nothing happens and the 982 stays. By the way - all other servos move when I change their Mean Position but not the throttle servo #5 (will not respond to changes of either Low, Max, or Mean).
I’m not even sure if Pixhawk Mini which I use will arm properly without an ESC, in the configuration that I carried over from my electric powered version.
Could anyone help me out in proper configuration and setup of a single copter for a gasoline engine? Is there such an option or standard setup that I should follow? So far I have not found any information on that.
Appreciate any help you can offer.
