Hi All, im new to the forum, I've just this weekend finished building my x650, the build itself went very well, all components were well made and fit together great,

My problem is the same I have seen a few other users have had, one of my motors (M3) isn't spinning and is just jittering on startup, I've tried plugging the motor into other ports on the ESC and the motor works fine. I've also tried swapping out the leads from the ESC to the FC to no avail.

The problem seems to be on the M3 ESC connection, has anyone managed to fix this issue?

I've just seen this post by TheGunMan and this is EXACTLY the issue im getting

thanks

P.S. Rotated the motors and same motor works on different port of ESC. The motor on M3 port of the ESC does not spin

P.S. there is video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=braQRTFKUBA

Thanks,

Try to adjust the throttle sub-trim on the Tx.
I had an similar issue i.e. none of the motors would spin.

Thanks or the reply, Unfortunately, I just tried this, and it didn't seem to help, it's only occurring on one channel on the ESC (M3)

Does any of you flying Y6 or hexa/octo with the XA FC do fly (sometimes) in cruise mode, or do you only use hover ? Looking at the vids in this thread it seems you do only hover - I'm wondering how does a 600/650-class Y6 or hexa behave in cruise...

m trying to hook up a copilot 2 to my 650 has anyone done this? can anyone think of any problems I might run into. Im trying to make this thing hands free for a camera so that I dont have to worry about flying the thing. If anyone has a better Idea Im open to them.
The software in the x650 is way better than the copilot II. It is redundant. the x650 in hover mode is much more stable than a helicopter with the CPII. Sell you CPII on ebay and buy something cool.

Nick

edit - Plus the x650 doesn't care if you fly next to trees or on overcast days. 2 things the cp2 suxs at.

so, anybody have the problem of when on usb power, and throttle poke starts motors and tho poke down wont stop motors? and camera servo would be real jumpy and noisey
the first ESC did that and it fried when i put battery on, the second ESC when under USB power would start AND stop, and camera servo was quite and smooth????

the first thing everyone said is battery in wrong, but different actions of config station and motors tells me something was wrong with 1st ESC-A4...

i thought camera servo was jumpy because of low power and no camera weight on board, and jumpyness was just noise that people talk about digatal servos having...with the new ESC there is none of that, from motors stopping to a very smooth servo travel slider controlled and aircraft hand held pitched and yawed now is smooth servo action...

yeah, i found and tried u-center, and its not for the this version of GPS equipment, but with the forth comming part and firmware update it will

Guys with one motor not spinning. I had that happen yesterday. One of the 8 motors would twitch instead of spinning. I powered down reset everything, same problem. I goosed it enough for it to be at 50% plus throttle and it came back to life, and worked fine after that. It's worth a try.
