I am building a quadcopter and I am on the last part of it (normally the exciting part) where I bind the controller to the receiver.
I can get the receiver, which is plugged into the quadcopter, to be recognized by the controller. The problem is that I can't get the controller to rotate the propellers.
When I touch the receiver it is hot. Not just warm, but very hot. I replaced the receiver already since it looked like the heat was too much and melted something on it.
Any thoughts as to why the receiver is so hot? Maybe it's because I hooked something up incorrectly? Perhaps the heat is causing the controller not to turn the motors?
Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.
- Controller - FlySky FS-i6
- Receiver - FS-iA6 (6 channels, 2.4 GHZ)
- Power Supply - Tattu R-Line 14.8V 1300mAh
The board it connects to is using 5v.
