So the past week, I decided to change out the basic TX that came with my Nighthawk, and the RX as I'd broken the antenna beyond repair (and now I have a basic platform to work on with other drones!) but here's my problem:
I spent an hour figuring out the channels and positions on the RX using PWM. 6 channels, 6 wires. Eventually, I got to a point where I had Pitch, Roll, Yaw and Throttle correct! Awesome, but for some reason it isn't showing any input from the Aux channels.
Now I know for sure that they are working (the switches) as during my testing, the switches would activate the channels (so switch A would change values of Roll as it was plugged into the wrong channel)
So I decided to dig through the TX menu's, I'm using the FlySky IA6. Everything looks set up right, I'd changed the switches around, tried using all 4 switches plus the two variable knobs and they won't show anything in cleanflight. On the TX, looking at the outputs, I can see the switches are changes values, as is the AERT, but the AERT channels are moving in unison with cleanflight, the Aux channels are not!
Anyone have any ideas why this may be or how to fix it. I'd very much like to use the switches for a host of things.
On an odd side note: before with the EM-16 TX and RX (came with the Nighthawk Pro 280) I was unable to arm and disarm by pointing left stick down-left/down-right, I always had to arm via switches, but now I can arm/disarm using the stick and not the switches!
