Just DIMU + AQ6

Postby Jean » Thu Aug 07, 2014 9:14 am

Hi everyone,

I have a simple question.

For now I'm using a AQ board and esc simonK and my dynamic calibration is REALLY BAD, (I still have the MAE number around 4). I have a DIMU to but I haven't soldered it yet, so maybe I should do it. So that my question, can I use a dimu without can and esc32 ? If it's possible I will did it and see what happens with the new calibration.

Best regards

Jean

So ... what are you waiting for? ;)
Take the DIMU, do an onboard calibration and see if it works for you.

If you need temperature calibration you can do it afterwards.

And yes: you can use the ESC32 w/ PWM. CAN is not required.

Ok Thank Kinderkram.
But That's the point, I don't want to use ESC32 because I bought simonK ESC.

So I will do it, I solder everything tomorrow and feedback if you confirm that I can use it withou the ESC32.

Best regards

Sure, you can use any suitable ESCs that work @ 400Hz - SimonK do.

Note: if you´re using an experimental Firmware the AQ does only send a valid PWM signal once armed.
In disarmed state usual ESCs will beep...

Ok So I do it tomorrow.
It seems to be delicat to solder on J1 & J2 but I will try.

What fw do you advice to use with the AQ board ?
