I decided to start a new discussion so I’m not butting in with unrelated items. As the topic states, I am using a pixhawk2.1 with pix4 pro loaded on it, QGroundControl and a ground station, and tbs crossfire as rc control and hopefully mavlink abilities. I also have a minmosd connected as well. I have been slowly but surely working through connecting components and trying to work through the setup in qgc. All has been going well and I believe I have things somewhat working. I should probably say that this is all going into a Ritewing Drak that I plan to use as a long range fpv wing and also for mapping.
I am trying to work through these issues I’m having one at a time. I’d really like to get it up and flying before I dive into camera triggering etc.
I currently have rc link established and when I arm the unit the servos work but the esc just beeps and doesn’t allow the motor to spin. I do know that the esc and motor work because I connected it to another receiver to test it. I’m sure I will have many more questions but I need to work through this one step at a time.
Thank you all in advance for you patients and help through this. I will admit that even though I am not new to the drone or rc world, pixhawk is completely foreign to me. I hope as this project progresses I can learn and pass along knowledge and help to the next person who needs it.
