Help!

Controlling a Brushless Motor through ESC using Arduino


Hey,
I'm have a brushless motor and ESC, which I'm trying to control using an Arduino Uno for my first quadrotor project. And I'm failing miserably, which is why I'm here. I tried connecting the Arduino to the ESC and using the Servo library, but it didn't work. All I get are three continuous short beeps on power and then short single beeps. I'm probably not able to even arm the ESC. This is the motor I'm using: http://www.yinyanmodel.com/En/ProductView.asp?ID=58 This is the ESC's manual(Mine's the 20Amp Aircraft one, with Ni-MH and LiPo Auto-detect. Table 1.1): http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...2X53414X39.pdf It's meant for an RC receiver and I have no idea how I can emulate one through my Arduino. All in all, I'm blank. If anybody could please help, I'd be real grateful. It'd be great if I could get the Arduino code also.

Thanks a lot.

You'd find them soon enough if you visit the multi-rotor forum, but take a look at http://www.multiwii.com/ and http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/ - Tried+tested open-source projects for Arduino-based multi-rotors
