Hi again, So i thought i had it working could get gps and everything come to flying and have a problem where the motors all start up fine and then the rear right just stops working i dont think it is hardware as the same esc when on its own (ie not into the board but just a reciever) works fine any ideas is it sometihng ive done wrong?

Hey mooch or any1 else. Does the f.l.i.p32 send power to the RX via the cppm cable? I got it all on the bench and programmed w telemetry and a frsky d4r2 RX but im not sure how to power it. Dont wanna brick it with a wrong connection... Running cleanfligt atm..
 majik01 6782 points
CPPM cable - you mean the servo lead wire? You have to connect the signal, power and ground wires as you would a regular channel. I've had the connection reversed before but that just sent signal to ground and vise versa ... no damaged except my pride.
 Kurt-Olav 109 points
Yeh i got it hooked up. But does this servo lead send power from board to RX or do i need a separate power cable? I cant find any videos that shows a separate power cable to RX.
 majik01 6782 points
The center rail of the rx input pin is power at 5V, Outer rail is ground which is the Arduino servo connector protocol. Don't take my word ... get out your tester and confirm.
 Moochasas 1705 points
The short answer is no......... its connected to the top pinout therefore the motor escs will provide the power to the board and the RX....... you can connect the battery straight to the board and hook the D4R up to the board as well.... vbat and telemetry......
 majik01 6782 points
Whooppss ... I have the witespy 32 flip pro not the Naze and the spy guy has three pins for the inputs on Pin 1 ...even if they use the same firmware, the layout is different (among other things ...)
 Kurt-Olav 109 points
I have vbat and telemtry enabled and connected. Just havent added the battery yet... Powerd the 32 on usb and RX from a 5v converter to test sticks and aux...so what you are saying and all videos on telemetry show that there is no need for a separate 5v cable to RX... It will be powerd from the PPM or vbat connections.... It will be in the frame during the weekend. :)

Do I sense a 250 FPV racing quad in the making over the weekend?
 Kurt-Olav 109 points
Thats correct :) however the 250 racing have been here for some time but i felt the kk2 needed retirement...And i wanted telemetry on this one... After i got the Vector with OSD and Telemetry im finding it better to have some battery info... There have been a few hard landings on the 250 from not enough power to recover from loops, rolls and speed dives :)

hi tony i brought one of those gimbals you said were good , i plyg it into the battery to test it and it just keeps vibrating, DJI Phantom Brushless Gimbal Cam Mount w/ Motor&Controller for Gopro3 any ideas is it faulty regards peter
 majik01 6782 points
Wom .... what kind of vibration? a) The whole gimbal cradle is shaking like a leaf or b) you hear a low frequency "hum" on the camera mount that can only be attenuated by inserting a piece of foam between the camera and the gimbal cradle (he, he....) Ohhh BTW, make sure your camera is perfectly balanced on the gimbal arms before you power up or your controller will "seek" the neutral position. Mooch is having too much fun with his FPV 230 and J9's and FPV copter ....
 Wombatcres 63 points
i just had it held in my hand, was level and the whole thing is shaking, i will mount it and see what happens then
 majik01 6782 points
Yep ... you have to mount it, balance the arms (with the camera or dummy weight) and power up ... it will move a little then settle on the neutral / ready position after the boot up is finished. Unless it finds the "balance" position, the boot up will not be complete.

that done the trick there is a slight hum but i guess thats normal not flown with it yet but tilt the quad the gopro stays level , i have a gui for it so it can be fined turned via that ,if needed
 majik01 6782 points
Get a piece of foam and force it firmly against the camera body and the gimbal frame ... that usually stops the HF vibration.
 Moochasas 1705 points
Hey Pete there is a few things you need to do as maj stated....... what you also need to do is after you have mounted a camera and have it stable (for testing I clamped it to my desk here) you will need to download the GUI so you can calibrate the accs and gyros then set the speeds of the motors....... angle of the pitch if you have it connected to a spare channel and the PIDs if it is NOT operating smoothly..... while they are great to use they can be a tad temperamental to set up but it basically the same a one of these boards really.... mine took about 20mins...... cheers
 Wombatcres 63 points
thanks tony how have you guys got it fastened to the bottom of the quad ?
 Moochasas 1705 points
*******youtu.be/JJ-YSNB4HiE cable ties are one method but now I have some U clips which hook onto 2 rods mounted on the bottom of the quad.......
 majik01 6782 points
a) I have a bottom plate with the same holes as the damper balls so I attach the gimbals to the frame using the damper balls b) mount the upper damper plate to the protruding frame of the copter via single screw - this way the gimbal can be adjusted and taken out with only one screw to remove.
 Wombatcres 63 points
Thanks for all your help next problem is I have noticed that the gimbal motors are getting very warm is that normal or do I need some ajustment I'm the gui
 Moochasas 1705 points
They shouldnt get warm warm but as there is some current flowing they wont stay stone cold... so how warm is warm??...... and if its too hot you can reduce the amount of current to the motors in the GUI. Its in the motor configuration tab........ next to the PIDs....... reduce the power till it starts to fail then up it a smidge......
 majik01 6782 points
Same issue of motor temps as Kurt ... me wonders if the motor power setting have been defaulted to a high value or something is causing the motors to vibrate and generate heat .. dunno .. have not encountered that issue .. yet.

Great unit, with all the features you need for your MC. And the price is awsome, so normally, you cannot make a mistke on buying this unit.If you buy this features in europe, you will pay 3 times as much or more. For the HK price, you get at least the gps module ( sometimes ) but not incluiding the board, wich has a big and powerfull processor also. So another time, where HK makes our hobby affordable. This is what the MC-Flyers need to upgrade their machines.

Received the board today from HobbyKing . After reading about all the broken Micro USB connectors on other FC like the Crius AIOP , I had a good look at the USB connector BEFORE connecting anything. The micro USB connector is soldered to the board at the rear corners and also has 2 tabs half way down the sides. Close inspection reveals that it does NOT have a lot of solder to hold it in place and YES it is likely to break off without some extra solder. The side tabs do not appear to have been well soldered, my guess, surface mount automated soldering has not applied sufficient heat to get the solder flowing well around the tabs which are part of the larger metal connector shell, using a fine tipped soldering iron, care is required specially on the side near the pin headers, re soldered the metal tabs and also the rear corners of the connector, I don't think it will come off now. Do keep in mind that is a very small connector and the cable can be used to apply sufficient leverage to rip it clean off the board, no amount of extra solder will prevent that, so be real careful not to apply sideways forces to the cable when plugged into the board. The quality of the board, the soldering of all the other components, I can't fault it, all looks excellent. Lots of information now in the files tab for the product at HobbyKing. I connected the GPS to Serial 2, and the flashing LED

Great Board. Using Multiwii Dev, and The AdruCoper Firm. Position hold, works... ok. for the price who cares!! Pressure sensor, old, but will work ok with foam mounted over sensor.
