    I'm glad the PPM setting works. Its strange, I know. I'm sure there's a logical explanation as to why that is the case...If the props spin, you don't have the MOTOR_STOP setting turned on, probably.

    This may sound crazy but try setting the receiver mode to PPM. I know it is suppose to be serial, but for some reason only PPM works for me

    Does the trasmitter respond when you're in CleanFlight? try flipping switches to see which one is usable for your ARM mode. I used AUX1 for mine, so when you go the MODES in cleanflight, the first mode to configure is arm. You'll see the little green tick-mark to indicate the current value being received on that channel. If you flip your AUX1 switch, you'll see it jump up. Move the target range to cover this value. Then apply the change. Then plug your battery in and once its bound to the transmitter, you should see the green(?) light blink indicating that it's not armed, but if you fip the AUX1 switch it should arm. Beyond that, you may have to modify your throttle thresholds, it may not be low enough. I'm a beginner, I had similar problems. Enough tinkering around and you'll get it.

    I am happy to try and help. I don't guarantee my responses will be helpful, but I will assure you that I try to be :)Your questions are as follows:1) is the aux 1 hidden?A)No, not hidden just not labeled. The aux refers to the a band on your transmitter. Every one is different, I'm sure. In fact my FSFLY T-SIX allows your to remap everything. My remap I, of course, mean to move the value from one physical switch or stick to another. So, your AUX1 may be on a switch that you haven't flipped. I would consult your manual on how to change them and then set your AUX1 to a stick that you like. I put my AUX1 on the "F-MODE GEAR" switch. So I simply flip the switch to ARM the quadcopter.

You will likely want to, similarly, bind it to a convenient switch.2) How to modify thresholdsA) I'm probably not using the correct terminology, here. Sorry that I'm not more experienced but I expected that a more experienced RC'er will see my failings and respond (hopefully?) Modifying the thresholds are done within cleanflight, I think. But the transmitter can probably modify the "Travel Adjustment". For instance, my T-SIX didn't return a low enough value for the micro scisky to allow the arming. What I had to do was put my throttle "Travel Adj" up to 117%. So effective range, when the throttle was all the way down, was low enough to allow the quadcopter to be armed. Without the travel adjustment being higher, I wouldn't be able to fly arm it. 3) Possible to use sticks to arm?A)Yes i'm sure its possible. Nearly anything is possible, if you try hard enough! If I were you, I'd do the following because it was easy for me and I like being able to use a switch to arm/disarm. It just makes sense to use a switch!Step 1) Make sure your transmitter is being bound correctly when in cleanflight. Check all your sticks and make sure they are responding the way you want to. If they aren't, simply change lettering from TAER to AETR or whatever works. You literally put your cursor in the box and backspace a letter and retype the letters in the appropriate order. Once you have the sticks responding correctly..Step 2) star flipping your switches and figure out which one responds on AUX1 or AUX2 or whatever. You'll see the bar respond in clean flight. It'll jump up, then down when you flip it on and off. Then go to the modes and pick the correct AUX from the dropdown menu on the ARM mode. You'll see the little green dot showing the current value being transmitted by your radio transmitter. Flip your switch to the ON position to make sure you're on the right channel, then move the sliders to "cover" that value

    Do you have any suggestions for material/temp? My PLA and ABS both have been breaking at the motor mounts. Its a clean break, so perhaps I've got some sort of binding issue. Was anyone else experienced this? What does everyone else print in? What durability do you experience?

    Not sure who has built this one lately, but I just ordered two micro skiscy from bangood and the board has changed. The connection points for the motors are closer together making it impossible to "center" the board on the frame as the leads are too short. Also, for some reason I can't get RX_SERIAL to respond. My FSFLY orange connects no problem, but in order to get cleanflight to register input from the TX it neesd to be set to RX_PPM. I don't understand if I've done something wrong, or what. Also, my "yaw" and "roll" respond in a reverse. when i go left the slider goes right and vice versa on both. I've tried to us the "smix reverse" command unsuccessfully. Does anyone have advise for me? I'd really like to get this thing working, eventually.

    FYI the newest version of the micro skiscy isn't working on RX_Serial mode for me and only responds on RX_PPM

    I found this: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=25...It discusses free typing a value in that box: "can just delete and retype in the AETR or TAER or whatever it takes to get the controls right"I'm guessing that this is what I should be doing. I also found this: http://forum.flitetest.com/showthread.php?23603-Cl...anyway... your assistance is appreciated. it's all starting to make sense, but still a bit puzzling why there's no documentation or help text in cleanflight to explain this. My googling makes clear that I am not the only one with this issue.

    Thank you for your response. Yes, I did that. There's like three choices on the dropdown, and I've tried all of them. None of them respond correctly. Everything is backwards.

    I got all four motors spinning the correct way, it turned out that two of the motor's polarity needed to be flipped, and the other two were as they should be. strange. Anyway, I really need to figure out how to remap the controls because the sticks are all mixed up. The right-hand stick is spring loaded at the center point, which after the copter is armed results in automatic 50% throttle. Obviously, I'd like to be using the left stick which is not spring loaded and is static for my throttle, and then use the right stick for directional control... Does anyone know how to remap the sticks?

    Ok, so I work helpdesk. Regularly, I get callers who, when I answer, say "Oh, it fixed itself, Bye!"So literally two minutes after posting this, I decided to jack around with it and somehow got it going. But of course the throttle now sticks at 50% because the right stick is the throttle. So at this point, I really need to know how to remap these sticks.

    So I got it flying, but it was obvious the motors polarity was switched, even though I followed the instructions and put Red and white to positive and blue and black on negative. Now the thing just spins in circles uncontrollably. Hm..

    Hello,This is a fun project, and I imagine it will be more fun once I can get this thing setup correctly and flying. This is my first RC project, so maybe I went a little too advanced... anyway I can't seem to get the thing armed.I printed up both pieces, got full BOM, soldered the motors, soldered the power cable, flashed the firmware successfully, didn't "disconnect" properly and corrupted it, soldered a wire to the jumper, reflashed the firmware, removed the jumper wire, connected up and completed the configuration steps, but hit a brick wall when I tried to arm the QC and take its first flight. Can't get it armed. I'm confused if its ok to use of my switches to arm or if I need to use the throttle stick. I got an FSFly T-Six transmitter and for starters the sticks aren't ...see more »Hello,This is a fun project, and I imagine it will be more fun once I can get this thing setup correctly and flying.

I got an FSFly T-Six transmitter and for starters the sticks aren't mapped to the correct functions. How-to remap sticks?currently, this is how it responds.Left stick UP/DOWN is "ROLL"Left stick LEFT/RIGHT is "YAW"Right stick UP/DOWN is "THROTTLE"Right stick LEFT/RIGHT is "PITCH"Next, I'd like to get it armed and flying.Help.... I'm really not sure what to do next. The transmitter is paired and I can test it in Cleanflight and they respond just fine (even though they're mixed up).I got switch "F-Mode Gear" switch setup on AUX 1 which moves from a range OFF(1141) and ON(1857). In CleanFlight>"Modes" I've set up AUX 1 as ARM and ANGLE. The slider on the ARM is from 1800-1900 and the ANGLE slider is from 900-2100 (full range).My head is hurting... uhg.
