Hello all, I’ve been a bit of a lurker to these forums the past 6-12 months and thought my first post here would be a bit of a happier/delighted one however it’s not to be! I finally took the plunge to take on the challenge of my first build. Being the Tyro 119 the set being bought from Banggood and following Joshua Bardwells youtube guide.
Before this I had just been pouring countless hours into simulators on my computer in preparation for the eventual first flight.
However the first flight didn’t quite go to plan… One of the motors stopped working after about 30 seconds of the first flight and would then only stutter. Even stutters when plugged into betaflight.
This still remained after re soldering the joints - just to make sure.
After trawling the internet and reading a fair few posts about the Tyro 119 I gathered that it could either be the motor or the ESC. A fair few people stated that it was their ESC that gave up on them.(a fair few actually!) I should probably un solder one of the other motors to check. However in the meantime I ordered another ESC a CL racing 4 in 1 45A. (probably could have got a more budget friendly one) After ordering I then realised that this has an 8 pin connection compared with the current 7 on the Eachine 40A 4 in 1.
I haven’t changed the flight controller from the one which came with the Tyro - The Eachine GPS f4.
Will this be overly difficult for a complete beginner to suss out? I know that I’ll have to re pin the connector or solder it to the fc. But I suppose its knowing what goes where which is probably what I’ll get wrong.
Anyone have any tips or advice for a complete noob regarding this? Potentially even to tell me which wire goes where onto the FC. I’ve probably gone over my head changing ESC’s but the Eachine one didn’t seem that reliable.
Thanks for reading - hopefully I’ll soon get to put all my simulator practice into a real quad!
