Hi Eduardo,

It works with the two motors, I just didn't realize about the motor arming sequence. I assume this is the BL-Ctrls that do this and that it is not initiated from the AP.

Tonight I will connect up the remaining motors and can tell you if I have the issue you mentioned of not all motors turning on (in which case I will make the change you suggested).

to start the motor put the throttle down + yaw right or yaw right
to stop the same.

if motor not start, try power down only the lisa and power again.
Dont power down the escs.

If motors start you have the same issue i addressed in github today.
You need the ACCTUATOR_DELAY_TIME in airframe.

I do only have two of the eight motors connected to the mkk board at the moment and wanted to see if the motors basically work and rotate in the right direction before proceeding. I spent a couple of hours trying to get the motors to activate which seemed to happen now and again by chance. Or so I thought ;)

It seems that the motors first need to be activated by holding the yaw stick all the way to one side and then the motors start up in idle. Pushing them all the way to the side again turns it off. Really? I know I have seen other types of copters getting armed this way but don't recall seeing anything mentioning this with or is the BL-Ctrl? It took me a while to find out what the arming trigger was.
