AX3500 - No Channel One - and Jerky

11 years 9 months ago #29524908 by kradsith
I am having a problem with my 12V tank. After hooking up the controller and running through the Joystick Calibration I don\'t seem to have anything happening on Channel One. I have checked the receiver and 3500 Adapter. Anything else I can Check?

Something must be getting through Channel One as the Receiver Powers up.

Cheers,

Check that your battery doesnt ever drop below 11V, even temporarily.

An undervoltage condition would occur. When it does, the display will be a solid 8.

Do you tests with the controller connected to a PC with the Roborun utility. There you will have much more diagnostic data.

Thanks for the quick reply.

I checked out my voltage and its solid 12V (OPTIMA 12V 55AH Deep cycle battery)

I tried out the RS-232 and laptop and everything seems fine. No Jumping around and motors run smooth.

My Radio is a Futaba 9CAPS with the FAAST 2.4 Module. I have tried clean configurations and disabling the F/S on the Radio.

I have checked the receiver by putting a couple servos on channel one and two and all that checks out.

I am going to try butting the stock Module and Receiver back on the Futaba and see if that makes a difference, but not sure why it would. Anyone else using a Futaba 9C or 10C?
