Compatable Battery/ESC/Motor/Prop Combo?
Last night I began testing my first quadcopter motors and ran into some trouble when ramping them up.
General rundown of my quadcopter:
I am using an arduino writeMicroseconds() function to send the pwm signal to my escs.
As I ramp up my motors, one-by-one, they stop working at increasing throttle steps. For instance, as I increase throttle, one motor stops spinning at around 10% throttle, then another stops spinning when I get to 30%, then another at 50%. I believe this has something to do with incompatable Battery/ESCs/Motors/props but I'm not sure where to start in determining how to get compatable components.
I tried using eCalc.ch, however, most of my parts aren't on that website.
Any advice would be much appreciated!
