    250 Class FPV Drone Under $350

    In case anyone was following my post the solution to my arming problem was:- rewire the receiver as shown in the pic attached. Basically opposite hand with signals all on first rail in same order as before and power wire left as it was on ch5.- modify the max_check in the program through CLI to something less than the default value of 1900 (say 1850) so your controller yaw can exceed it at max position so the program recognizes an ARM command. (You can first test this before changing the program default by just using the fine tune thumb wheel for yas if you can get it above 1900 on the high side.)Hope that helps somebody somewhere.....................Next up.............tie it down and add props!-

    Remarkably good Instructable! Worked fantastic for a beginner like myself.I purchased and assembled all of the parts aspresented. Even added a Screamer for lowbat alarm. FPV is operating great!For the program I used CleanFlight and all seemed to work fine. I used the CleanFlight configurator andfollowed your lead in the video for setup. Motors calibrated fine after I did swap leads on two of them to get themin the right direction. So the power board seems to work ok and theNaze32 controller board LED lights up as expected. The Screamer unit beeps at me. It was hard to see the position of the 5V powerconnected to the receiver (CH5 pins) and I know I had the ground lead flippedto the control board's ground side wire pin on the receiver first.

So the power board seems to work ok and theNaze32 controller board LED lights up as expected. The Screamer unit beeps at me. It was hard to see the position of the 5V powerconnected to the receiver (CH5 pins) and I know I had the ground lead flippedto the control board's ground side wire pin on the receiver first. Thenflipped it over to the signal side pins with the other signal channel wires fromthe control board and it lit up and worked then. I always had the 5V red power supply fromthe PDB on the same line of receiver pins as the red power line to the flight control board (receivercenter pins).Problem I do have now is that I cannot get the Turnigy 5Xcontrol transmitter to work. It seems tobind ok with the receiver. Its light onthe receiver and transmitter go solid when binding as expected. But will not interface with the configuratorchannel range checking step nor will the controller arm. I am trying to arm by leaving the right stickin center and moving the left stick to low (down) throttle and high (right)yaw.I have it set on MODE 2 and tried the Aile and Rudd switchesin normal and Rev position. I did try to set the minimum throttle to 850 tomake sure range was low enough. There isanother yellow blinking LED on the flight controller board that I think issupposed to go solid green when it is armed?I tried searching this out on line but without success. Any help or suggestions?
