Good one!

Luckily my test flight field is right behind my house, just a 1 minute walk...

Hi there,

got my shippment at hands! But now, I need to know how to program them (description says something about some few programmable parameters) Since there is no documentation included with the products/shipment I have no idea!

I've used Tunigy Plush ESC so far and have a Turnigy programming card at hands (white one).

I believe that you can use your Turnigy programming card (white one)

I received my Flyduino yesterday and today I soldered all the pins. When I connect it to the computer and run the GUI the cycle time goes from 3000 to 15000 and repests thst every second. The lines are not moving. I'm using the sketch in the first post. I connected my warthox board and tested and it works fine, so I know it's not the GUI nor the FTDI.

Any suggestions on what might be wrong?

Hi,
I nearly killed my Flyduino yesterday, my motor suddenly stopped while I was hovering 30m above ground filming our city and the gravitation took over the wheel.
My tri rammed into the ground. Thank god i used a very stable selfmade exoskeleton to protect the electronics.
Although the exo was totally shredded the flyduino survived with a few bended pins (they caused a shortcircuit, but thank god only 5V, i rebuild and colored the frame yesterday, testflights in the basement suggests, that the flyduino is up and working. I lost two props (only have to props in ccw left now) but the gopro survived the crash in my custom made camera frame.

what a relief - but this f*****g esc nearly cost me a fortune. If I only new what causes this outages. You can see in the onboard vide that there was nothing special, it just turned of. It normally does this when powering up very fast.

It's a mystery Pentium 30A yellow.

Aftermath: Broken Protection frame, 2 broken props, bended Pins
Motors, bearings, arms, lipo, electronics: OK ->*sigh*

My first mayor crash after 8 months of flying...

Nils

Now it's time to rethink my QuadX Design: I think an acrylic Bowl wont be enough protection for the Flyduino...

Super Simple 20A Programming

there are three setups.

put throttle stick to max power and turn on the battery

first – Lipo *peep* - *short pause* - *peep*
second – Ni-XX *peep*peep* - *short pause* - *peep*peep*
third – Brake *peep*peep*peep* - *short pause* - *peep*peep*peep*

when you hear the bibs by the second time, just put the throttle stick to idle on the
required setup.

repeat the steps to all the configurations.

Hi,

Oh you are from Kiel too.
Cool...
Maybe we can fly together on the weekend...

a missing connection?

had such a behavior when the -wire to wmp got loose contact after a crash.

after resoldering all wmp wires it was fine again.
