my lab just bought an Erle Hexacopter, I assembled it but now I'm having some problems performing the first flight. I followed the procedure here a hundred of times, but nothing happens. Everything seems to work on the on-board computer, I have a yellow/greenish led and a blinking orange one, I even connected a screen to check for errors, but can't find nothing.
I know that everything is connected correctly because at some point, out of frustration, I was just messing with the controls and the motor started spinning. At that point I could control the speed using the left level of the controller.
The problem is, I have no idea how I did that and I don't know how to replicate the event.
Am I missing something? Am I doing something wrong?
