Hello everyone, this is my first post; so bear with me for anything that may have been discussed on this space already. I have an 8520 racerstar coreless motor but then i wanted to try if Arduino Nano can power this through an L293D. I’ve also got the MPU 6050 for the required gyro and accelerometer data but then even before i get there i have a problem with the thrust i guess.
Given that am using an Arduino i wish to control speed with the analogWrite() function and then the digitalWrite for the respective pins in play. The whole thing works well - as in functionally i can ramp up from say 50 to 255 in the value range and the motors accelerate as they’re supposed to. Being a small frame i worry that the whole setup isn’t aerodynamic enough and maybe that’s another reason why this is stuck on the ground.
I use the 3.7v 500 mAh batteries - two of them - wondering if 1 wasn’t sufficient. Still no luck. Before i labor with my PID challenges i wanted to know if this will take off at all before i go forward
