Mounting and Wiring the Board

This tutorial is still under development. However, if you follow these steps in point form you should not have any problem wiring the board.

For now, refer to the EZ Connect Wiring Diagram and the notes below.

Motor Connection

  1. Connect 3-pin ESC connections to the EZ-connect motor cables marked A,B,C,D.
    • Power will come from Motor-A ESC only.
    • If you are coming from another flight control board don't assume the A,B,C,D motor locations relate in any way to motor locations on other boards. hint! hint! ...the KK board!
    • If the copter can't take off under control then you have your motor locations mixed up!
    • Refer to Connecting Motors and Servos on the MultiWii Site for proper motor location diagrams. (The Quadrino is an Arduino 328P.)
  2. If you have a camera stabilization platform connect SERVO1 and SERVO2 to your Yaw and Pitch stabilization servos. You may remove this signal wire if not in use.
  3. If you have a buzzer for low battery voltage alarm connect the Buzzer cable. You may remove this signal wire if not in use.

Receiver Connection

  1. Connect VCC to (+) power connection of the receiver.
  2. Connect GND to (-) power connection of the receiver.
  3. Connect at least Throttle, Yaw, Pitch and Roll signal wires.
  4. AUX1 and AUX2 is also highly recommended, you can connect to channels 5 and 6 on the receiver.
  5. VIN: We recommend you power the Quadrino board using the ESC connection but if you prefer you can connect VIN directly to the battery positive supply and it will use the on-board regulator to power the Quadrino and receiver module. Do not connect both VIN and ESC power! Do not connect the battery (+) directly to any other wire except VIN or VBATT or the Quadrino will Fry.
  6. VBATT wire is usually unused but if you are doing battery voltage monitoring by the Quadrino then you should connect this directly to the 12volt positive side of the battery.
  7. You may remove the VIN or VBATT signal wire if they are not in use.
