Pixhawk flight controller in a fixed wing airplane.


New member
I am trying to put a Pixhawk 1 flight controller in an electric RC glider. I am using a FlySky FS-i6x radio system with the PPM port (channel one, usually used for the ailerons) on the receiver cabled to the RC IN port on the Pixhawk. I am finding that I am not getting a signal sent to the throttle channel, but I am getting signal sent to the other flight controls. I would like to converse with someone who has experience with such a system. Thanks!

I haven't used a flysky radio setup, but am well versed in Ardupilot. Most likely that is the firmware you are running on the pixhawk.

Almost sounds like you have not armed the flight controller. The throttle will not pass through until armed as a safety measure.

See Ardupilot documentation on arming:
