I am using the latest firmware for the ESC’s and Omnibus flight controller and the latest Betaflight configurator. I have connected the controller to VBAT, connected just one ESC to VBAT and ESC data connection to the controller.
I can control the motor from Betaflight when in oneshot or multishot mode but in any Dshot mode the fight controller locks up after a few seconds. I can use BLheli in passthrough when the flight controller is in oneshot or multishot mode but not in Dshot (because the fight controller is locked up or it has lost the serial connection for some reason).
Has anyone experienced this or have any suggestions?
I am not using logging and no SD card installed. I just have power applied (VBAT) and one ESC. Maybe I will try another ESC just incase one has an issue. I have found that the problem is not just with Dshot. The flight controller locks up on oneshot or multishot too but just takes a little longer. Maybe I have a defective ESC or flight controller.
Hmm that is abit strange, and the lock up occurs even when the FC is powered via battery and you are not using betaflight? Just checking so we k ow of its maybe betaflight software locking up, rather than the firmware.
If you still have issues with another ESC, and also when not connected to betaflight then maybe the Baird is faulty so we will need to investigate that further and replace the FC
Thanks for your help. I found out what the problem is. It must be the USB drivers on my laptop as when I tried another laptop it works just fine. On the other laptop I let Windows pick the driver and it works. On my laptop I used Impules RC to select the driver but that was causing a problem. I also tried Zagdig but I still couldn’t find a driver that works. Any idea which driver I need to install for Windows 7? The laptop that it works OK on is Windows 10.
