help my wiring...


hi, I was stuck here...

as you see the pic, 1 is the wire coming from the FFboard with xt60.


2 is the 4 esc's output....


battery can be connected to xt60 but where should I wire the esc's output?

Both the esc's and the FC should be connected to the battery, looks like. some controllers are like that. the board should have a filter on it I would think.

what are you trying to do

If you want to flash new firmware:
use the Firmware update(d) software and follow this guide
Pay careful attention to the final page otherwise you could mess up your board!

If you just want to run the board GUI:
run the ZNS* (Upper Machine software).
Best to use the latest version (sorry - not sure where the latest is)

Yea just want to run it. that is what i was asking. with the program, there is 1.0.5 and 1.0.7 so was not sure. if the firmware on the board works i will leave it. when it comes to what ever board I use. if I don't have to update the firmware and it works good I am happy.

Since you havn't run the GUI, you don't know what firmware version you have, so what GUI version to use ?

Just use the latest - 1.0.7 I think.
The earlier version locked up when I did IMU Calibration

Sometimes it is only a hair of a change in tilt in the proper directions on the motor axis' that speed up to yaw in the weak yaw direction. It is a setup procedure that should be accomplished correctly and periodically checked especially after a "hard-landing" in order to get the best heading hold and yaw performance out of multicopters. Be sure to reset the yaw "P" value when you are finished. An indicator of bad mechanical dynamic neutral stability is weak yaw response in one direction and both motors on one axis being hotter than the other axis.

Quadrocopter and Tricopter Mega Link Index
Hey, it worked!!! The rudder is not as aggressive as I am used from KK boards but at least I can fly now. I used PID for 500 mm quad and I changed P Yaw to 50 and D to 0, Stick to 20. Maybe future FW versions could have more aggressive rudder, for me this is lazy.

This quad is good for slow flying for AP/AV. Overall, it's very stable. I tried acro mode and when I was messing around it and it suddenly fell out of the sky. Fortunatelly only props broken, but I would not try acro mode again.

The video is shot today and it was just before the snow storm, there was a very strong wind.

Now, I am going to mount my DIY 2-axis gimbal and try how it works with this board.
