Jumper T-Lite Transmitter (4in1)
Emax TinyHawk II Freestyle BNF
Done bind_rx in CLI confirms binding but no confirmation to say complete even thou the control after me pressing the bad on transmitter setup receiver in pic I uploaded. Unsure on other settings apart from on transmitter set it to frysky D8
Betaflight receiver is seen and can see it testing the drone still spin it like a washing machine on 1200rpm
I know it’s connected to the drone when disconnected from laptop and running of the battery as if I goto turn off the transmitter it gives me a warning and rumbles and if I switch off the drone transmitter rumbles and if I switch transmitter off no warnings just straight off.
But apart from that nothing I do with sticks it will not arm
I installed the link circled
So when connected to betaflight on the receiver tab do the coloured bars move when you move the sticks?
And the little picture of the quad is spinning wildly out of control?
That sounds like your channel mapping is out.
Have a watch of that video and follow along, it’s the complete setup for betaflight
Alot of it will already be done for you so ignore it but pay attention to the channel mapping and the modes tab setup for the Aux modes.
One thing to be aware of with the Freestyle in its standard factory setup. Do not fly too far away from yourself. The inbuilt SPI receiver is not the greatest and it will failsafe at anything more than a 100ft. This isn’t the fault of the THFS it’s true of nearly any quad using an SPI receiver. I have an Eachine Twig that would failsafe at much less than 100ft.
At some point you may want to add your own receiver. This will require some delicate soldering (I hope you’re still practising ). There are many options. A lot of the guys on here, including myself, have gone for long range systems such as Crossfire, or in my case IRCGhost, for no other reason than we already had the kit. You could add a FrSky micro receiver such as the R-XSR. Personally I’ve become quite enamoured with the Radiomaster R81 D8 SBUS receiver. These are cheap as chips at £6 from Unmannedtech and are as good as anything from FrSky in the same size. It will also bind to your Jumper T-Lite exactly the same as the built in receiver on your TinyHawk FS.
The above is just something to think about as you become more proficient and you want to explore further. Other than adding a Ghost receiver to my THFS I haven’t done any other modding. But when you start to feel the urge to mod Karl and Deano are your goto guys if you want to go extreme
Hi thanks for replys but at the moment I’ve spent hours and hours at this, I’ve followed JB to a T and nothing works I’ve removed the modes he suggested and just kept arm mode and definitely tried both ways, I did get motors running for split second then flicked the arm mode switch to stop but never again I thought there be a certain stick control movement and done everything position possible and my thumbs are sore now.
I went to motors as JB showed and they will not start.
Set all inputs from 1000 to 2000
I’ve done firmware.
Definitely controller is binded and do see when I’ve tried to start it I can see lights changing.
I thought this be bind and fly like a bind button on the controller and drone then fly, it took 2 seconds for drone to goggles
Got any screen shots of betaflight tabs?
Should give me an idea on what’s a miss
If it’s not arming are there any flags shown here?
Your first flag is throttle high.
Is the stick centred or at lowest position?
Second is a problem with rpm filtering and is usually an issue with esc setup. It could be bidirectional dshot enabled and your esc does not support it. I’m not sure on your quad though. @DeanoG60 will know more.
Ok so MSP just means you have usb connected so it’s just the rpm filtering to deal with.
Yes @callum is correct, turn off bidirectional dshot.
Also change it to dshot600 not dshot300
And set your Gyro update frequency to 8kHz
And set your PID Loop frequency to 8kHz
Disconnect from usb plug in a battery make sure your throttle is all the down and flip your arm switch make sure the motors spin.
@callum @DeanoG60 @Nidge U
I followed exactly what was told all them settings he said todo.
I spent 2 full nights and days fuffing around this and while have a it’s where I think best I thought pack up and sell, thought waste of hours on the simulator.
I was going to buy a DJI FPV and fly high and do FPV 400ft in the air in fear I break it.
Thanks guys now back in box and continue on simulator.
Bardwells video was setting up a completely different quad lol only wanted you to follow the receiver and modes setup part of the video as that’s the same on most quads lol
Sorry was my bad I didn’t make that clear when I posted the video.
@DeanoG60 tbh i did it that way originally but still did not work, was it ok to configure endpoints 1000 to 2000 ?
is there a reason my motors don’t work in motors tab, I’ve click the warning tab.
Do you have a battery connected?
EDIT: shall i enter the other modes or just keep to the arm only
Are your motors spinning now?
And modes are personal to the pilot so it’s up to you. Ones I would suggest are beeper and flip over after crash.
And yes should always set your end points and then reduce the dead band.
