How do you arm an Arducopter?
Arming the motors
- Turn on your transmitter.
- Plug in the LiPo battery.
- The pre-arm checks will run automatically and if any problems are found the RGB LED will blink yellow and the failure will be displayed on the ground station.
- Check that your flight mode switch is set to Stabilize, ACRO, AltHold, Loiter, or PosHold.
How do you arm Arduplane?
This can be done in three ways:
- Rudder Arming. Hold the rudder stick fully to the right and the throttle stick fully down for 2 seconds.
- Arming Switch. An RC channel can be configured as an ARM/DISARM switch by using the RCx_OPTION for that channel set to 41.
- GCS Arming. Press the arming button on your ground station.
What is AHRS ArduPilot?
AHRS: Altitude Heading Reference System. An IMU (see below) plus the code to interpret the output from its sensors to establish a plane’s XYZ and heading orientation.
How do you run SITL?
- Open a Cygwin64 terminal from the start menu.
- Navigate to one of the vehicle directories (in this case Copter) and call sim_vehicle.py to start SITL.
- SITL and MAVProxy will start.
- Send commands to SITL from the command prompt and observe the results on the map.

Why isn’t my drone working?
If your drone propellers are spinning, and the drone attempts to take off, leans to one side and almost flips over, the most common reason why your drone might not be taking off is because the propellers ARE NOT on the right motor.
Why do my motors keep accelerating on the bench when I arm without props?
What you’re seeing as the motors slowly spin-up is the buildup of that Ki value getting stronger and stronger as flight controller is trying harder and harder to execute a change that it can sense, but can’t impact. No props means no force to execute change, hence the windup.
