I got some cheap ESCs from Amazon and I’m trying to get the to work in reverse. I’ve built a small jig with pogo pins and I’m able to flash SimonK using avrdude. It’s a generic atmega8 and it looks like it supports tgy just fine.
What’s got me stumped however is configuring SimonK to go in reverse. So far, this is what I’ve tried:
- get the latest version from GitHub, compiled it, uploaded it. It works just fine, but only forward.
- looks like the documentation on how to enable reverse is outdated, no idea how to enable it on the latest version. RC_PULSE_REVERSE is no longer a config option.
- got an older version from 2015, set RC_PULSE_REVERSE to 1, compiled it, uploaded it, and it still will only go forward?
I tried a bunch of other things, such as kkMulticopter flash tool, but it was completely broken for me, just threw a NullpointerException trying to download the firmware. Did it manually by following the steps the tool was trying to make, found tgy_reverse.hex and flashed it, but still only forward.
I also tried http://0x.ca/tgy/ but that looks broken, too.
Any ideas what would be causing this?
