    Awesome! I'm glad you got it working. Let me know if you run into any other issues.

    Ahhh! Change External RF to PPM. That should do the trick! You will probably want to add an entry for CH5 up to CH8 in the mixer page, assigning them to switches. Those will act as your AUX channels in cleanflight. Let me know if that sorts it out for you.I help a lot because I love this stuff :). I also remember how hard it was getting started. I do use affiliate links for some of the products I list and that helps to fuel my addiction and publish more content. Check out my blog at http://fpvobsession.com/.

    Also, for reference. PPM frame says 22.5ms 300u -. I'm pretty sure those were the defaults.

    Is this a new taranis? Did you setup a new model in the taranis and tell it to use the external module? Does the model have channels setup?

    for the motors spinning when you connect the battery, got to the cli and type "set motor_pwm_rate = 32000" and then hit enter then type "save" and hit enter.

    Hi Ilyu, the Fmode switch should control Aux 1. Does it move the Aux 1 channel in the receiver tab when you move the switch? You will probably need to scale the channels coming out of your radio in order to arm. Check out my response to MalcolmK2 below, I explain why. You can use the rxrange in the cli to do this. Let me know if this doesn't make any sense. What are the minimum and maximum values for throttle in the receiver tab when you move the stick between min and max?

    Thanks, I'm glad you like it! Sorry for the delayed response. I'm confused by the statements "the channel values never move" and "I can see that the inputs are attached to the channels". Where can you see that the inputs are attached to the channels? Can you try setting the module to DSMX? Did you change any dip switches on the module? You can also try different combinations of RX_PPM and/or SPEKTRUM2048.They changed something with the latest scisky, buy I can't remember the exact combination of combination of things that work for people. I don't have a newer version of the board, but I'll try to help.

    Hey, sorry for the late response. I really need to put a "common arming issues" section or something somewhere because you aren't the first have this problem.My best guess is that the quad is not arming. I assume you setup the arming switch correctly and that you can see the switch move the little tick below arm in the modes tab?Next check the receiver tab and observe the range of the throttle stick. The values should be as close to 1000-2000 as you can get them. In order to arm, the throttle needs to be below a certain threshold and I bet that your throttle is not going low enough. If the values are not close to 1000-2000 for all of the sticks, you should be able to adjust that from your radio. Something like "travel adjust" and push that percentage up for each...see more »Hey, sorry for the late response.

Something like "travel adjust" and push that percentage up for each channel until the range gets as close to 1000-2000 as you can get.There is another thing you can look at in the CLI. Type "get min_check". That is the value that the throttle needs to be below to arm. I bet that value is lower than your lowest throttle value in the receiver tab.I imagine that adjusting your radio channel range will fix the problem, but another thing that will prevent the quad from arming is its orientation. Make sure that the accelerometer is properly calibrated and that the quad is sitting flat when you are trying to arm.I hope this helps, let me know if you have any more questions.

    You might have to reverse some of the channels. You can do this from the radio with the DX6i. When you push both sticks to the upper right, all the channel values should be at max.

    The Scisky has a built in DSM2 receiver which is compatible with the T-6.

    That weight is a bit heaver than mine but should still be fine. My builds are usually around 38g without battery.Does it not take off at all? Can you confirm that the motors rotate in the correct direction and that the props are not reversed?

    Thanks! I'm glad you like it.

    Sorry I didn't respond earlier, looks like you are making progress. For the stick mapping, have you tried adjusting the "Channel Map" on the Receiver tab as the first image of step 6 shows? You need to hit save after changing a channel map before the changes will take affect.

    Your quad is probably not arming. Go to the receiver tab and observe the minimum value that the throttle can output. Now go to the CLI and type "get min_check". I'd bet that value is lower than the lowest your throttle can output. In order to arm, among a few other things, the throttle needs to be below min_check. You have a few options:* Try and adjust your radio so the values that it outputs are as close to 1000-2000 as you can get them. This might not be possible on the DX5e.* Scale the values in cleanflight using rxrange in the cli. I have not done this but will try to write a short guide about it when I get some free time. Once again, you want those values to be as close to 1000-2000 in the radio tab as you can get them.* Adjust min_check to be larger than your min...see more »Your quad is probably not arming.

Add 20 to your minimum throttle to be safe. Something like "set min_check = 1200". Without scaling the channel values though, this approach as the disadvantage that you will lose some top end throttle values that your stick just cant command.I hope this helps, let me know how it works out for you.

    These pids are for rewrite.

    I'm glad you guys are having fun with it! I'm sorry you are having issues with the Scisky. Let me know if you have any more questions or are still having issues with the new FC.

    What version of cleanflight did you load? Version 1.13.0 fixes a bug where the accelerometer would drift over time. You should only adjust the trim to make the stick values as close to 1500 as you can on the receiver tab when centered.

    Are you testing the motors in the motors tab in in the Configurator? There is no safe way to do this. You shouldn't plug the battery in at the same time as it is plugged into USB.Is are you sure motor_pwm_rate is set to 32000? Have you tried the other suggestions I gave to pctech334?
