    My solder job could look better however when I hook it up to betaflight all the motors come on.

    I'm not the best at building yet but at least I don't think I fried out the dalrc 40amp 4in1!!!!

    I can not get this flight controller to recognize my flysky receiver. I've tried everything and read all online information.

    Can anyone tell me how to get this thing to recognize flysky?

    Configuration tab, change to ibus or ppm rx. You must have the Aux channels setup as well as modes.
    I have my Aux channels as

    Arm = swd = aux1
    Modes = swc (3 position switch) aux2

    Change it in tx menu & modes tab.

    Which tx do you have. FSI6 or i6s.

    If non of this is setup the tx won't talk to the fcb.

    It's actually the eachine I6, I have bound many quads to it without issue.

    How can you tell if a receiver is bad? I've noticed after binding the RX signal only has a couple of bars.

    On mine it has never been full.

    I think there is a setting in the transmitter (remote controller) that you have to switch to ibus. This is just a thought... I might be remembering it incorrectly. I have been on ibus/sbus for quite a while.. and I'm not around my Flysky transmitter to take a look at the moment.

    Dammit!! Now I've got a bricked f405 fc board that won't do anything?? Oh well it'll work eventually. But still man,,,,,,

    You may have to use impulseRC driver fixer or zadig. They're on github.

    Jump the boot pads. Connect. Re-flash

    Okay I've got the ground and positive wires soldered to the row on the outside row and the ibus wire soldered on the inside to "rx2". So I should just be able to go into BF config tab and turn on "uart 2" and be good to go? Am I doing something wrong here?

    (The solder job looks crappy I know, once it's working I'll clean it up).

    First you need to go into ports tab and enable serial rx for UART 2. Then in config tab there's a dropdown for receiver mode where you select iBus

    Okay the receiver and fcb are finally talking however another issue has popped up.

    In betaflight where you can see a 3d of your quad and it's supposed to move the same way you move your quad?

    When I move my quad to pitch up, the 3d image pitches down, and when I move it to pitch down the one on screen moves up.

    I went ahead and tried to fly but that was a mistake. All it did was flip up into the air and crash.

    How do you fix a pitch reversal? I've looked and found no answers.

    Have you read the manual?

    Yes Jackson I've read the manual lol and I wish it was that simple.

    I knew someone was going to suggest a channel reverse switch, however that is not the problem.

    The problem is the flight control board thinks it's upside down, I don't know of any way to make it realize it's right side up.

    Which way are you moving the stick?

    If 'the flight control board thinks it's upside down' wouldn't all the controls be affected?
  17. Dugdog47

    Dugdog47 Well-Known Member

    As far as I can tell all the other controls are correct except the roll pitch for forward/backward.

    As you can see the nose of my quad is pointing down in real life, but on screen the little 3d display is pointing up.

    I haven't been able to fly it yet to check all the controls but only the forward/reverse (right stick roll) seems reversed.

    Answer: rotate the yaw 180!!


    Thanx for all your help fellows, I'll take it from hear lol.

    Well I got the 40 amp escs with motors that pull 33amps. No babying here lol.

    Hover tested it with a few punches, HOLY MACKEREL this thing is FAST!

    Like a rocket blasting off.

    Expect a video in the "well did you fly today" thread in the next week or so.
