do it this way:



I had it wired this way, I rewired it to match your wiring. LED is still on and no blinking. I also reloaded the firmware without making changes, no change in LED behavior.

looks good now. solderjoints look cold but ok, should also work. have u also uncommented the ppm sum define? maybe its necessary when u uncomment a hexacopter with pro mini.
can u post your config.h?

I believe you Paul but it's not because it never happened that it can't like I was thinking( I have been very discouraged many times searching trouble and replacing motors and esc!)

.What surprised me the most was the cheap HK controler who make my quad live again!I know it's a strange behaviour and on another frame it'unflyable!I will wait for the new one and will be happy to see how stable flyduino and ffimu can be like the first flights was!

ok flye we find a solution, but i think a new one shouldnt behave different, we will check.
But technically the flyduino should behave like a pro mine and vice versa.
Its really hard to get a relation between the beahviour and a technical explanation.
But i know some configs behave strange and i am also always happy when i find a good working one.
But this sounds abit like a enabled baro, dont know, New ones will take a bit, but we check that.

Hi M4d_d,

great looking flyduspider! Can you provide some details on the config (i.e. BLDC you've used (KV value), ESC, sensors, ..)?

the config looks ok. the only thing u can try now is to comment the failsafe function. i had a problem with that at the beginning when it was implemented.

it flies very stable ... i just used an aluminium profile to mount the lipo that far back

I uncommented the line, still no readings. The problem is that the LED stays on after connecting to the COM port, according to the startup procdure it should blink and stay off. Could that be a help finding a solution? Also also tried running the code and gui on mac and windows, no change.

mh ok. have tried to upload the 1.7 fw? if this also dont work i would try another ftdi adapter.
