I just built my first quad and I got the Taranis bound to my x4r and I installed the firmware for the Kiss FC. However, I can't get it to arm. I followed Rotor Riots instruction perfectly and Kiss GUI is showing the command for Aux1 but wont arm. Any suggestions?
Does the gui show the switch you used for arming actually working when you look at the receiver tab? When I set my devo 7 up I had to extend the travel for the switch I used to arm it so it would go from 1000-1500-2000. It was only going from 1300ish to less then 1800 on default set up.
Are you sure the switch that you chose is actually set in the taranis to be the aux channel you assigned in the gui? Im in new territory as I don't use a taranis just going by what I see in the videos. Maybe redo the step where you choose the switch or maybe to trouble shoot try using a different one?
I'm not saying you didn't do thing right just thinkin thru the setup process and where things can get confused.
Oh and check and make sure you don't have a throttler hold possibly set up too that is locking it out.
Yeah to both things. This really suck no body can help me and this is my first build so I have already been challenged a lot. I never soldered before doing this and I spent 3 days on it for it to not program correctly. Do you know if Kiss has a customer support?
(Edit) I don't have the option for dshot right now I have oneshot 42 slected instead of oneshot 125 and PWM.
I do believe you can contact them directly on their website. Flyduino.net. I also think they have a thread up on RCgroups as well.
Have you been able to spin the motors using the motors tab? Make sure they all spin and we can most likely rule out a bad esc. I would say go back and triple check the wiring for the esc's if one or more does not spin. All else fails you can carefully de-solder then and see if the fc will arm without them connected.
Ok just saw the edit from the previous post.. Look on the Gui and tell me what firmware you have loaded please. Then tell me how many wires you are using from your receiver? This may be a case of pwm and ppm swapped.
Wait.... You have a taranus and an x4r? you should be using sbus I thought.
On the GUI I have V1.14. I have the Rotor Riot setup with 4 wires coming from the receiver to the FC. I have the red, yellow, and black ones coming from the Sbus pins and the white coming from the smart port for telemetry.
