Steve I don't get the part where you want me to connect the signal in from Rx and then to the receiver. Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks

You need to take your gear channel (say ch5)from receiver and the orange or white wire is the signal wire. That wire will go to the Arduino pin D2. Pin D3 is the orange or white wire from servo. The way I wired my Arduino is, I connected 5 JST connectors to the Arduino board. Than the other side will connect to correct wires from receiver and switches,etc. That way I can just unplug it if I need to.

Okay, much better. What do you mean with tapped off?

Thanks

trying mine little different, using a 360 servo with the (2) 3a limit switch and 2 diodes  and the wires going into the servo motor lead off the board

Help guys,,,


burnt 2 servo already. Tower Pro 360. Become heated up and dead.  i set voltage to 6.8v on stepper DC converter.
Then i replace another servo and happy for 5 minute. :) . Burnt.....

Hi Yen,
I had similar issue but was doing the lifting/lowering when it was on the ground (as you do when testing)
Suggest you put a block under the frame so the legs aren't on the table/ground when testing. That way it is not under strain from lifting the weight of the chassi.
Bear in mind when the rotors are turning they will assist in the raising of the legs.
I bought a replacement Tower Pro and did the conversion to 360 myself and haven't had an issue since following my advise above.

did you do the mode with the limit switches wired into the servo with 2 diodes

Nope, I added 2x 2.2K resistors and removed the limiting pin from the cog. Youtube has a good video.

Can someone confirm this. Using the Arduino, the microswitches should be wired as follows.
common---signal wires
N-O of both switches wired together for either pos or neg on Arduino
N.C of both switches wired together for either pos or neg on Arduino.

Yes, that's correct.

To test, unconnect your servo but set it in the middle position so not touching either of the switches. When you first turn on nothing will move, this is coded in so no fingers get trapped. Flip your controller switch and you should see your led's start to flash. Now, click one of your switches with a screwdriver and hold it down. If your LED's go solid then you know this is the direction your servo should be moving for that switch on your controller. Flip the switch and double check the other microswitch.  Lastly connect the servo up and make sure its driving the right way. It will burn out if it's going in the opposite direction.  If it needs reversing you can just swap the pin numbers in the top of the code and reprogram.

You can also check with a multi-meter that the + and - (NC / NO ) pins on the switch never see each other when activated.

Does this all make sense?

Yes, I actually had it working. But my mental lapse caused me to forget how I wired it. I than needed to redesign the lower block that holds the switches and took it apart....lol.....forgot how I wired it.

I'm on my third servo too.. lol I did the same thing 'TWICE'  so you're not alone.

I was so close to finishing. Wired up my motors and LEDs. Now just need to tidy it all up and try to fit it all under the Dji canopy.
