Drone on betaflight configurator work normally, just with battery no?


#1

When I disconnect from betaflight configurator and use just the battery for drone…there is no light, nothing. When I connect to betaflight conf.(and the battery) everything works normally. Where is the trick?


#2

Sounds like you are not powering the flight controller correctly. Or worst case the regulator on your FC is fried :boom: . Can you share some photos showing how everything is wired up.


#3

But when I connect the battery i heard a sound, but there is no lights. In betaflight everything works normaly…


#4

What sort of sound was it? And was it followed by a puff of magic smoke?

Can you share some photos showing how everything is wired up so one of us can check if everything is correct.


#5

Sound of motors. And there was no puff😊. Is maybe this connected with aux channels or failsafe, angle mode,something like that,some setting to setup?..i have nothing to do photos with


#6

Im pretty sure you have a phone…
A photo of your wirings will definetly help us.

#8

And when i connect battery and in betaflight configurator i hear the whole sound of the motors and flight controller. With the battery i hear just the half of the sound


#9

Am i seeing it right that everything is connected to the battery pads on your FC? :smile:


#10

Yes that is right. I can do this:)


#11

Looks more like you cant do it… :smile:
However:
My Theory is that (as @unmannedtech said ) that you dont power your FC correctly.
It turns on while the usb is connected because the cable powers the fc.
My suggestion is to think about a PDB.

But when i try my rc radio and motors with battery connected,they work ok and respond. When i disconected the usb cabel, nothing…


#13

Thats why i said try using a pdb…
Looks definetly like an powering issue

@ares
You really really need to fit a PDB.
your running 4 30amp esc’s off the same pad with bad solder connections that may come lose on a crash and cause a short.

If those motors even try to go full current through that connection its going to go bad, real fast.

Moving the ESC’s to a PDB will give you much better and safer connections.

We all have to start somewhere with soldering.
It took me about 30 minutes just to solder 3 small wires.

Thank you, I will try to split it and will see…
