display motor output values? disarm?
« on: March 26, 2017, 12:27:00 pm »
Hi,

I am flying copter for five years (Nanowii, APM), but new to LibrePilot. After having problems with installing a CC3D board with betaflight, I came to LP and could flash the controller immediately. 1 big point for LP!
As I walked through the ground station to understand all the features, there came two questions:
* is there a display for the calculated motor PWM values, where I can see if the correct motors spin, e.g. tilting the board to the front with neutral stick position, so the front motors will increase speed? I always found this a useful feature when installing a frame.
* how would I disarm the copter, excluding powering-off?

Thanks for your help!

Greetings, ghj

Hi,

You can display motor value in scopes with Actuators.
- Scopes tab
- Windows > check Edit gadget mode
- Choose one scope with "Actuator" and select the traces you want to display.

Best option for orientation check is PFD.

If you need to power-off the board for disarm you are using the "Always armed" setting.
Not really recommend, you should use a switch or stick movement for arming.
