Step 1 - Kopter-Check
Before the Kopter will be powered up the first time after a successful assembly you should review your work again.
For that reason that it is an electronic model a solder bridge or an improperly connected cable can destroy hours of work within seconds.
What should you check?
Here are some hints:
The red outrigger is pointing forward/to the front?
The FlightCtrl is mounted correctly (with the SMD parts upwards)?
The FlightCtrl is pointing with the arrow forwards to the red outrigger?
The propellers were properly aligned and mounted with the correct direction?
All bolted connections were made correctly?
Visual check of all solder joints.
Visual check of all connected cables.
The power distribution board has been checked for shorts? (Check help)
If you have allready mount the GPS-System, is it correct connected? (Check help)
Also this should be checked:
At the transmitter a model memory with a fixed-wing model (ACRO) has been set up.
The transmitter has been set to your desired MODE (MODE 2 is the regular mode).
The channels on the transmitter are assiged to switches, buttons and potis.
The receiver was bound with the transmitter?
The receiver gives a PPM sum-signal?
(or has it been changed to - i.e. necessary at the receiver of the HoTT transmitter => Link)?
The receiver is connected to the FlightCtrl ? (Check help)
