HELP....Flysky with arduino

Hello, Basically i am making a robot for a competition called "robowars". I want to control the robot with the transmitter i.e. the flysky transmitter, like if i want a rotating disc to cut someone, or a hammer, etc i will have to control it with the transmitter right and i want to use the arduino for this, for example, to change the speed of the disc or change the speed of thee robot itself.I want to read the stick values and assign them for different tasks. My robot is about 15 kg, so i need a high power battery to run it, . I guess i can use a BEC for this....i just need help in reading the stick values from the transmitter.Please help in the hardware and software. I am using an ARDUINO MEGA 2560. I am totally new to robotics and have no experience so[b] please [/b]help. I need the code and the connections. Thanks in advance

Connect ESCs with RC receiver?

I am trying to connect 4 ESCs with a FlySku 6 Channel Receiver. I managed to connect all four of them to the throttle channel and it works fine. However, is it possible to connect them to other channels wiht them being plugged in the throttle channel at the same time? I am making a quad-copter and I am not sure what channels to use? like I know that we need the throttle channel to change the throttle and the motor speed. but like to change the pitch, roll and yaw, we need the other channels too right? So can anyone please guide me through it? I am using a flycky CT6B transmitter and a 6 channel receiver.

Need help with RC plane transmitter ---> Flysky FS-TH9X + R8B receiver?

I bought FS-TH9X thinking that I can use it to control a land robot. I only need it to move a few 180 degree hitec servos My problem here is that I've never worked with RC plane transmitter or receiver --- I don't have a clue on how to operate or program it. If you have FS-TH9x or are a RC plane enthusiast/expert, please help me I urgently need to know how to control 180 degree hitec servos  I know i'm stupid for not researching the product before buying it but youtube only has videos on modifications or unboxing, forums only have specific questions, and the manual just confused me.  Any help is appreciated, Thanks

Quadcopter wont lift off? Answered

I have made a quadcopter. However, it wont lift off :( I really need help with that. Following is the list of components I have used: 1) http://www.buildyourowndrone.co.uk/QuadCopter-Full-Motor-ESC-Set-850Kv-p/acq-fmk85.htm 2) 6200mAh, 35C LIPO battery 3) http://www.buildyourowndrone.co.uk/ArduCopter-QuadCopter-v1-0-Frame-Carbon-Fiber-p/ac-frcarbon.htm The weight of the whole copter along with the battery and the components is 1.52Kg which I am sure the motors can lift. I am using and arduino UNO and an MPU 6050 along with a FLYSKY 6Channel Rx/Tx for communication. The motors run on full power, however I am not sure why I can not generate a lift :/ I really need to make it work as this is my final year project. PLeaseeee someone help me :(

Why my quadcopter is oscillating and crashing after taking off?

Hi guys, I am new to this multirotor domain. We are strugling with our first F450 quad. Below are the specs: 1. F450 quadcopter chassis 2. KK2.1 Flight controller. 3. FLYSKY CT6B --- 6 channel radio transmitter 4. 1400 KV Brushless motor 5. 30 amps ESC 6. Lipo battery Firstly the quad was not taking off properly. More over, after activating self level mode also, the quad is not at all stable. If we max up the throttle, then it flips in one side and crashes. Otherwise, it takes off from the ground upto 1-2 feet if we slowly increase the throttle and then oscillates and to avoid crash, we then decrease the throttle. Please see the video HERE for more reference. Please guys, really need your help in this matter. We are not able to understand exactly what is wrong with our quad. We have already calibrated our ESC's and the Accelarometer but no luck. Please help guys.
