Kakute f7 current sensor issues


#1

Ive owned several versions of the kakute fc’s and have never had this issue. So I just bought the kakute f7 and started calberating the current sensor in betaflight then I ran into a problem. When I look at the amps in the osd it’s backwards. When I lower the throttle current goes up and raise the throttle current goes down. Any ideas? Faulty board?

Ummmm ok…
That’s a new one on me :confused:

Maybe the scaling is wrong…
@UnmannedTech guys have you seen this before?


#3

That is super weird and I dont know off hand what it could be… are you by any chance using a virtual current sensor selected by accident? Or have you wired the current sensor the wrong way round?


#4

Negative on all of that. Everything on the quadcopter works great except the current sensor.


#5

I’m wondering if you have a faulty board then and there is some sort of short that causing it.

Its strange that it changes with your throttle input that’s what makes me think its faulty.


#6

Yeah that is quite strange… did you order it from us? If so would be great if you can send support an email along with a video (or you can add it here to the forums) so we can talk to Holybro about this as i have not seen this issue before.


#7

No I didn’t order it from you. I ordered it from Amazon but not sure about what company. I guess I could contact holybro directly. It isn’t a huge priority that I have current reading or mah just a wierd thing that I’ve never seen before.

Try to go back to the seller through amazon.

If you find the issue can you comment it here.
I would like to know what the cause is.

Just wondering, but do you have a high amp draw as soon as you plug in your battery ?
