Okay , hope fully you got one servo around.

Take that servo and plug it in the RX by it's self.
Then plug the ESC into the rx, leave it connected to the motor. Take that prop off!
Now power up everything, if the servo responds then you rx is good.

Howdy - I am highly confused and maybe someone can help me. Looking at the source code it seems that GPS data is read through the serial port, reading all the forums it seems it needs to be connected via I2C....

I have a couple LS20031 laying around and want to use one of them for the Quadrino Board. However they operate on TTL 115200B and don't have a direct I2C interface.

Any advice would be helpful. Or a suggestion what I2C GPS module is fully compatible.

Thanks,

Andy

I had a spare external 5v BEC laying around and i plugged it into the board and it still won't receive power. Should I try to solder the External BEC into the VIN and see if it will power up?

And how would one do that?
Doc,

I too would like to know where you turn it on. The config.h, def.h, etc.?

Okay sorry guys, I was out in the shop and don't have a laptop out there yet.
Using serial gps is a bad idea, but it can be done.
The last few guys that went that wat was not happy with the out come.

One of you guys please speak up?

Somehow I blew something on mine (I think it was a diode) and i no longer get 5V on my Rx or Motor pins on the board. I now power through the VIN pins direct from the 3S lipo. I power my Rx from a dedicated BEC.

Just don't power the VIN pins with any higher voltage than 3S. I think the manual says not to even go as high as 3S, but the Guru said it was fine and it worked for me. I know it doesn't completly fix your board but beats sending it back to Colin if you can live with it.

This is all from memory as I haven't flown my Quadrino in a while, so hope I'm not giving innacurate info.

As far as GPS im currently using the Flytron Navigatron I2C gps. I do however recommend powering it for 5v instead of using the 3.3v pin on the board. Havent done it myself but will soon.

But hopefully the Quadrino gps will be out soon.
