I'm new to this activity so please bear with my ignorance.

I became interested in drones a few months ago when I bought a Syma X8 - loved it and since have bought a 250 racer kit and successfully built it and love flying it.

My latest build attempt is a hexacopter on a Hobbyking frame using a JMT Inav F3 delux full function flight controller with M8N GPS, compass, barometer and OSD.

All good until it came to setting up on INav, I seleected hexacopter X in config but when I go to the motors tab it only recognised four of the motors. Motors 5 & 6 don't appear the other four spin up as they should. It's not the controllers or the ESC's as if I change them around they all work OK.

I suspect the problem may be that on the board pin diagram M5 and M6 are shown as M5 / TX3 and M6 / RX3 but don't know what to do to get them working.

Can anyone offer any advice on this issue, I've searched the net to no avail.
