I am trying to set up a brushless motor so I can control it via python.
I have a AreoStar ESC and the manual says to enter the menu for the motor you must first set the throttle to 100%, then plug in the battery. A menu of beeps will be sounded and setting the throttle to 0 will then select and arm.
If I run the following command
pigs s 27 2500
plug in the power then... after the first set of 4 beeps run
pigs s 27 0
all goes quiet. I was expecting a confirmation beep.
If I then try and run any other pigs command to move the motor I either get nothing. Sometimes I get continuous beeps. It feels like it is not armed.
If I unplug the battry and plug it back in I get nothing (I am guessing I should get a sound to say it is armed?). I can re-enter the menu at any time with the above.
Anythoughts on what I need to do to arm the motor?
