Topic: Using rs20Ax4 without a flight controller? (Read 445 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi,

I'm kind of new to the whole drone building scene and I was wondering if it is possible to wire up a rs20Ax4  ESC without a flight controller.
I want to wire it directly to my Arduino mega without the controller.

All the tutorials I can find bang on about using a flight controller. but is it not possible to just use an arduino, gyro and barometer and acctually learn how things work instead of the "hey, here is your 1 stop solution for learning nothing..."

Is it possible and can anyone point out some tutorials or something to get me started?

Yes, you can drive 4 ESCs with an arduino.
You will be diving head first into a lot of complex ideas that you need to master before you will have a flyable quadcopter.

If you are up for the challenge, this could be a fun project.

I cant get it or my motors to work.

If you mean a Racerstar RS20Ax4 ESC then yes.

For more help perhaps you'd like to tell us what you are trying to use it with including the code you're using and exactly how everything is wired and powered.

This is not a helpful statement at all.

Post code (use code tags).
Post a wiring diagram.
Post details on your power supply.
Explain what you expected to happen and what actually happened.
