    TBS Discovery NAZA-M: Can't arm the motors.

    Hi guys,
    I've got a problem with my NAZA-M in my new TBS Discovery.
    TBS 30A ESC and TBS 900kv Motors
    Transmitter Futaba 10CG, Receiver Futaba R617

    I did all the configuration in the software, Tx calibration, Tradition mode

    After switching on the system I hear 2 beeps.
    LED is initializing, then it's blinking green 4 times and then:

    in Atti Mode:
    Slow blinking in orange, when I try to do the CSC nothing happens, still orange blinking 1Hz

    in Manual mode:
    no blinking. When I do the CSC, led is double blinking in orange, every 1.5 seconds.


    No motors activity at all

    Hope you can help me.

    Frank

    I already checked the trims, all zero.
    Non of the csc is working. What is the meaning of the orange led blinking?

    The naza manual is free to download it explains all the vu signals. Here's the link

ID:	16110 here's a pic of page 38 I believe. I hope this helps if I could see the led blink speed it would be easier to diagnose check all your wires one buy one, most of the time it's something simple.

    Motor plugged into the incorrect port?
    Channels need to be Reversed or changed to Normal (this is most cases that I have seen)

    Problem solved ... you won't believe it !!!

    The known CSCs only work if your throttle min is at the bottom.
    Mine is at the top. If have to pull throttle for max pitch.
    So my CSC is instead of moving both sticks to the inner bottom corner, I move the throttle stick to the top right and swash plate stick (I'm a heli pilot for 23 years) to the bottom left ... et voila ... all engines running.


    It has nothing to do with blinking LEDs.

    Thank's guys for your support.

    I'd reverse that!

    Never want to start the motors at the top of your throttle stick input :-|

    If I reverse it, I have to push throttle during flying.
    I'm used to pull throttle, since I'm flying helicopters and airplanes for 23 years.
    But it's ok for me, as it is.
