Hi Alex, thank you for responding... as I said not new to RC as I have 2 RC cars for bashing with my son. Bought second hand as chassis and repaired and fitted the electrics and I race RC sailing boats. But here for some reason I am struggling.
Here is the link to the Tarot 280H
I apologise for the poor quality of the drawing but I'm not an engineer however it should reflect the wiring diagram I have so far on the Tarot 280H. It is the one with the swinging canopy from Tarot... same as the 250 but with longer arms to put 6 inch props.
Totally beginner with drone.
Ok so since my last post I check that the AR610 RX was working properly by directly powering it with a battery to the batt port and pluging a servo on channel at a time and all working fine. So I know the Tx and Rx are ok. But obviously the Rx was not getting the power. so I soldered on the cable from a UBEC 5A I have onto the distribution board of the Tarot and the other end to the Rx and sorted we know have power.
I since went through the firware upgrade of the Atom, went through the wizard setup of the drone... all good so far.
Now go to the Tx wizard.
all the controls work fine as per the wizard so I know the signal from the Tx to the Rx through the Atom to the GCS is working fine. That up to the point I need to use the flight mode.
When I flip the switch H, but tried G and F on the Dx6 nothing... also with the Dx6 the pitch was not recognised.
So I changed to a flysky FS-i6 Tx and iA6B Rx and all the 4 channels controls by the 2 sticks are recognised and working as expected on the screen as on the Tx but here again nothing happens when I flip any of the switches on top. I tried the SWD as it is a 2 position switch but nothing.
I am at a loss now on how to assign a switch for the flight mode.
Hope this helps to recap where I am in the build and how I fixed the initial power issue on the Rx (hope what I did is ok) and the problem I face now.
BTW I set the arming as per your video with the Yaw on the left... tested and that worked. However 2 motors at the rear 3 and 4 started together where the 1 and 2 were kind of spinning but nowhere near as fast as 3 and 4. did I do wrong the setting of each motor neutral position?
