Hi, I am currently working on making a quadcopter drone using an Arduino nano and GY-521 MPU6050 accelerometer as the flight controller. I am using the MultiWii drone Arduino software. I have followed what many others have done online using this link. In MultiWii, the flight controller clearly shows my accelerometer working and corresponding to inputs from my transmitter. However, even though everything from the software side seems to work in the simulator, my motors do not spin when given the input from my transmitter. I believe all my soldering to be working as every component is receiving power. Any suggestions?
I am using Readytosky motors of this kind (link), with 40 Amps ESCs, and 7.4 LiPo battery. I am using a flysky transmitter and FS–IA6B receiver.
The code I have uncommented in MultiWii are:
#define QUADX #define MAXTHROTTLE 2000 #define MINCOMMAND 1000 #define GY_521 #define SERIAL_SUM_PPM ROLL,PITCH,THROTTLE,YAW,AUX1,AUX2,AUX3,AUX4,8,9,10,11
