    Hey all!

    Appreciate any help you can provide, I'm building my first drone.

    I've got the following hooked up:
    Motor: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B075731ZJM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    ESC: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B073VM2MRX/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
    Flight Controller: https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B074KCDRDM/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    I've soldered everythign together (it all looks fine), when I hook that up to BetaFlight the Accelerator works fine and I can calibrate that.
    If I plug the battery in the readings are all okay on that as well.
    I've gone to the motor tab, clicked the switch to arm and tried each of the motors and none of them spin up.

    Does anyone have some helpful hints on how to debug this?

    Yeah, a lot going on here. Firstly I see that your ESC/Motor protocol is set to brushed. Needs to be brushless and then DShot 600 selected. Also your Mixer type should just be Quad X, not 1234. Can't see further down but Serial RX should be selected for RX Mode, and sBus or iBus (depending on what radio system you are using) should be selected for provider. My suggestion is to go to Youtube and do a search for Project Blue Falcon Beatflight setup. It will give you a simple, easy to understand start to finish of everything from ports tab to configuration and modes/switches setup.
