    I received my H on Friday and have had 4 successful flights over the weekend. Tried to fly it today and the motors won't arm, Everything fires up as normal after the long wait for the camera but the ready icon (top right) does not turn green. GPS status said ready, even tried it with the GPS off but the red button would not fire up the motors. I connected it to the GUI and got green ticks for all sensors and even did a motor test successfully. Anybody else come across this?

    Did you check all switches on the transmitters. I do not think it will arm if the RTH switch is on.

    Yes all switches were in the correct position, Flight mode was in Angle.

    The problem seems to be with the ST16, I put the H into team mode and bound the wizard which was able to arm the motors. I would appreciate it if somebody could post some pics of the B1 button setup in the channel settings so that i can compare.

    I have managed to fix the problem. When i changed the B3 (camera) button it linked it to the throttle channel and was overriding the B1 (arm) button. I deactivated the B3 button which unlinked it and set the B1 button to -100%, both buttons now work. Thanks to Simon Newtons video where i could see what the throttle channel settings should be.

    I did something similar yesterday, and now I cannot figure out how to make B1 100%.

    I did it by going into B1 channel settings, click on the second graph so you get -150 to 150 and then I set position 0 to -100

    I will try that this evening. At one point I had it arming with throttle down.
    Is there any documantion on the default channel settings? Or is there a way to reset st16 back to factory settings?

    There is a factory reset on the pad side in settings then about device but I was unsure if that would reset the flight app, I chickened out on trying that one.

    Ok here is what there is to change for the B1.
    There is Multi, Accumulation and Equal. You see what I have now.

    What happens when you hit the reset button? Does it go back to factory defaults?

    In equal position 0 needs to be set to active and -100 I set pos 1 to inactive. Reset just puts it back to 0 not the required position.

    Ah dammit. The ST16 battery died. Its always something. Yea, a reset dont put it back to the defaults it needs to be. It sure would be nice if someone will create a pdf showing each channel and the default settings for instances like this.

    I'll try -50 later today, I guessed -100 from watching a video and it worked but I would rather have it set correctly, thanks.

    I have set mine to -50 and all is well, I will leave it at this setting.

    This is ridiculous, it has taken this freeking long to charge the ST16 battery from the stock charger.
    Multi tester says 4.1V

    That doesn't sound right, I've not flattened the battery but first charge from 50% only took 2-3 hours. I'm going to try out some phone chargers though because the standard charger does seem to be on the slow side.

    I dont know if its the battery itself or the charger is just that slow, or at least mine is.
    Im thinking of making my own pack and charge it with my better charger.

    Anyway I got the H back to where it will start the motors with the B1 button. Thanks guys.
    I did learn that if you go into the channels screen be very careful of what you save. It could add a feature to whatever channel your in.

    Like me I accidentally added the elevator to the rudder and B1 channel.

    I for one think there should be some detailed information on the entire channel menus. Including pics of every option and what the default setting is.
