Default DJI F450 and Gaui Gu-344

Hello

I bought a Dji flamewheel f450 arf package a while back put I hadn't had time to build it until yesterday.

I had a gu-344 lying around so I thought I use that instead of getting a new Naza to save some money.

So I put everything together but when I power up all that happens is that the ESC goes Beep.............Beep...........Beep and so on. And I dont seem to be getting any power to my gu-344 or my reciever.


Do you guys have any idea what this could be?

Thansk!

Are you using the DJI esc's? If so, they have no built in BEC so you are not getting any power to your FC or your Rx. If that is not it, don't know what the issue is.

You need about 5v so unless you have a Rx battery, the answer is no. 5v BEC's are not expensive.

Yes definitely grab a BEC, cheap and lightweight.
