well that was short lived.

Testing last night it all works fine. the 360 servo had a plastic connector, so changed it for a towerpro modified 360 and it rotates very jerkily...... im now at a loss. the servo on my tester works perfectly. attached to the nano. it doesnt. to say I am at a loss is the understatement of the century, no Millenium

any suggestions?

HELP!

I've just swapped to a different make of servo and it now works. The tower pro 995r modified didn't work

Can anyone suggest a servo that works without any modifications? I've now tried several TowerPro 995 MG all to no avail. They rotate smoothly for about a second and then go jittery. I'm wondering if it's todo with the arduino speed settings or dare I say code.


I really have no clue

After much reading and cross referencing, I think I may have found the problem, a Fake TowerPro servo. So I have ordered a genuine one and will report back

YAY! My suspicion was correct, have just installed a genuine TowerPro 995 metal geared servo and it works perfectly. Have just redrawn the Microswitch wiring and will upload shortly.


The main wiring diagram is correct, but the Sketch needs to 4 & 5 swapping as detailed in another post.


So using the diagram, the sketch adjustment and the Microswitch diagram. Your build will progress first time......

Looks good. I am just at the wiring stages so your diagram should help a ton.  Thanks!!

Hi very close too completion now. One last question


When measuring the Naza GPS position for inputting into the DJI assistant. As the FC cannot be on the C of G. I'm a little confused where too measure it from, the actual craft C of G, or ???.


Any advice?


Regards

hi,  I think I just measured it in relation to where the naza sits.  I can't remember the exact settings to be honest but I'm sure someone will chip in and help you out.
