Step by step setup
« on: October 29, 2015, 01:04:29 pm »
Dear friends,
Recently I brought OpenPiolot Revolution Flight Controller + Oplink + M8N GPS + Distribution Bord (http://www.banggood.com/OpenPiolot-CC3D-Revolution-Flight-Controller-Oplink-M8N-GPS-Distribution-Board-p-1000084.html) from Banggood and I am trying to assemble my RCX H250CF PRO 3K with it.
Unfortunately I am unable to arm quad when GPS is on, find any kind of step by step tutorial (for Dummies  ) how to do it, nor any kind of advices for beginners. It’s all general or super-sophisticated stuff (and I am 50years old noob (medical doctor) who want plug and play things).
Does anybody knows where I can find simple answers to this?
Kindest regards,
Spx

Welcome Spx,

If you want to know why you can't arm, check first the SystemHealth widget and see also this page :
https://librepilot.atlassian.net/wiki/display/LPDOC/SystemHealth

Can be various reasons for that but always for your safety.

Maybe you can post your config file and we can check whats wrong.

Have you fixed this issue yet?
I had a similar problem and so have many others. It seems to be almost the default occurrence when something in LP is setup wrong. My issue was that when I saved my Transmitter setup to the board just after choosing what command would arm my CC3D, I had my throttle stick down. This is a habit I have from years of flying models. This caused an issue with the arming procedure. I fixed it by redoing Tranmitter Wizard and being sure to center my throttle stick before I saved to board after choosing my arming command.
Hope this helps

Looks very strange, the Throttle input channel is the one that do not take in account the middle position and apply a 4% value from the whole Throttle range for neutral value setup.

If you can reproduce the issue, i'm interested for a config file and look on it.
Thanks

Indeed it is the default that it won't arm if something is set up wrong.  :)  That is the last line of defence against someone getting hurt.

There is a set of LED colors that tell you the FC status.

I made a tracking to ask for more specific LED codes to pinpoint why it won't arm while you are trying to arm.
