Hawk Sky Help
I am new to the forum as I am looking for some help so forgive if I am posting in the wrong concussion board.
I recently purchased and built the Dynam Hawk Sky and have flown it a couple times but after a few days I am running into some problems...
When I turn on the plane, one of the servos now makes a strange noise but every servo still functions until I attempt to turn up the throttle--now only goes up to about 20% power-- which runs for five seconds and then the entire plane just shuts down....
I have no idea what is going on--maybe a busted battery or ESC???
If you're not familiar with those digital multimeters, this might help:
(Note that this meter only has a 10 Amp DC current range, and your electric power system likely pulls more than 10 Amps.)
Hobbyking is one supplier that has a decent unit.
Here is a 30 Amp HK unit.
Here is a 100 Amp HK unit
1. Replace the battery, it may be bad, its best to start at the heart of the electronics.
2. the one servo may be bad, replace it and see what happens.
3. reset the throttle end points on the esc.
info from Nigel
Quite a few ESC need to see the FULL range of throttle stick movement ... so for setting it up :
a) Switch on TX
b) Put trim all way DOWN
c) Put stick all way UP to max throttle
d) Plug in model battery pack
e) Listen for beep
f) Return Tx throttle stick to DOWN minimum throttle position.
g) Listen for confirmation beep
Power of both.
Now test ...
1) Switch on Tx
2) Put throttle trim to mid point
3) Throttle stick to idle position
4) Connect battery to model
Listen for beeps / music if enabled.
Try throttle ... you should have full range now.
If not ... reverse Tx throttle and try above set-up again ....
It's always good as well if you have a Throttle Cut or Hold you can activate when connecting model battery's ... but this will inhibit arming of motor till switched of.
