Furious FPV "Nuke" Brushed Flight Controller Set-up Guide


#21

Sounds good. i feel like I can safely say the community will be here to help if you have any questions B)


#22

So I got things all soldered up and followed the guide (flashed firmware ect).

Now when i try to connect the nuke to my taranis x9d it wont bind.

When i boot the rx holding down the bind button i get the solid green light. When i hit bind on the taranis remote the green light begins flashing (but never turns off). If i stop the taranis bind the green light goes solid again.

This happens every time i try to bind.


#23

The plot thickens, the nuke is sending me telemetry through the micro rx when the micro rx light is solid green. However when in betaflight no controls issued from the taranis x9d show up.


#24

I’m having the same problem, tried setting the sbus inversion to off and still not registering my x9d inputs on betaflight


#25

May not be helpful but did you do:
2) “Ports” tab:

  • UART3 row -> engage the “Serial Rx”.
  • Save.

Sorry, but I used a lemon rx dsmx with dx6i. Bound it on a different fc and put it on the nuke.


#26

Have tried that in both states. Also tried remote config in serial SBUS and PPM. Neither worked.

Thanks for the advice just the same.


#27

Just curious, what PIDS is everyone using?


#28

I used PIDs from the bottom of this thread:

and they worked very well, a little bit sluggish on thrust but quite stable. I think the sluggishness is related to lack of power - its a 6mm dreamcatcher with middle-of-the-line motors - and right at 24g so a little bit heavy. Its waiting on faster motors.

I had a really hard time dialing in the PIDs, it was mostly very unstable and was really hard to get to a baseline setting that was flyable. The linked thread settings seemed like a good starting point. Thanks Chime13!

@Scott8933 You’re welcome! I’m now running all my motors at 13000 to keep in line with my ‘13’ theme and I’m really loving it - I get solid performance and decent battery life (I usually do 3min flights per battery) - All in all - pick a number between 8000 and 22000 and you can’t go wrong. Happy flying!

I just flashed my Microscisky with the latest firmware and some of my numbers have definitely changed for the better.
For S & Gs, here is what I’m flying now as far as my nQx with an ARRIS 5.8G 48CH 25mW 800TVL FPV Micro AIO Camera and using Nanotech 180mah lipos

I have my DX6i travel limits to 125% and I also use a mix of aileron and throttle(30%) and elevator and throttle(50%)

#31

Thanks. They worked pretty well. I have my Nuke in an e010 frame and trying to figure out the best way to mount it. Right now I have it with foam sticky tape with my micro frsky rx on top then use rubber bands to hold it down.


#32

My quad is making a loud whine when you throttle up. It’s not flyable either. I’m thinking a bad motor. I’ll test tomorrow with my other quad. If not a bad motor, any ideas?


#33

Go to CLI and type:

set motor_pwm_rate=32000

then type:

save

test it


#34

I tried that and 1600. I have a set of insane motors coming in tomorrow so I’ll test them to see if it still whines. I’d use the ones from my other bird but I finally have it dialed in and don’t want to mess with it lol.


#35

Got rid of the whine and it’s flyable now. Had to refresh the firmware a few times though. Running default betaflight PIDs but it’s way to sensitive. I’ll tune it tomorrow. Just glad I got it working. It was driving me crazy lol.

Got everything working now. Only problem is I have bad roll drift. I have to almost max my trim out to correct for it. How is everyone mounting their nuke? I have mine in an e010 frame with double sided foam sticky tape but I know it’s not level. I’d have to remove the nuke to calibrate the acc but that kind of defeats the purpose.


#36

I’ve been trying to configure a Nuke FC to work with a spektrum satellite but it won’t accept serial on UART3. I’ve tried it on the other UARTs to be sure, but it just won’t stick. Has anyone experienced that?


#37

Mine was much more stable after I did a calibration with the sticks - I assumed that Betaflight calibrated on Arm (thought I read that somewhere) but it still needed to do a gyro and acc calibration using the stick positions. After that it was better, less drifty.

My nuke is just resting on some foam strips and held down by a loom band. I didn’t want to stick it down since the USB port is behind a plastic strut and it has to be lifted out every time I want to change a setting.


#38

Figured this one out. I was trying to slide over the first slider after UART3, and also setting Serial RX. That wouldn’t stick. But just setting Serial RX worked fine. Doh.


#39

Hope someone will read this😂

I have ordered this fc and I want to use it with flysky receiver https://www.unmannedtechshop.co.uk/flysky-fs-a8s-2-4g-8ch-mini-receiver-with-ppm-i-bus-sbus-output/

How should I connect them?

Thank you in advance


#40

If you’re using this board and it’s quickly disconnecting from BetaFlight, make sure you’re choosing the FF_PIKOBLX as the target.

Thank you to the BetaFlight support team for helping me resolve this!
