Picked up a 250 quad with cc3d flight controller, downloaded software got the quad calibrated, but when I start the transmitter wizard, it doesn't recognize any transmitter inputs
Probably just got an expensive paperweight

I'm using CC3D Atoms in a couple 250 racing quads. They're working good for me. Are you using OpenPilot or LibrePilot software? Either should work. PWM or SBUS?

I just picked up a 450 quad with the cc3d (not the atom) controller and I have the same transmitter as you.... JR 9503....... No problem at all.... there's something you're missing along the way.....

Have you checked out the youtube videos ???

Been there, done that and old enough to know better.....

I agree with Juan, check YouTube videos. Is the receiver bound to the transmitter? Also, check the firmware version. You may possibly need to update it on the CC3D FC.

You've answered my next questions already.... ie, transmitter on and bound to the receiver.....

Don't know then.... you've tried re-booting everything ?? Computer, controller, etc. .... ??

Mine works as advertised....

So, are you talking about the naza controller ?? I thought we were discussing the cc3d controller and software

Go over your wiring... make sure that the connectors are oriented properly.... ie, the signal wire on the signal pin on the cc3d, etc....

Ok, let us know what you find.

PS, you can always post a picture of your setup..... you know what they say, a pic is worth...... well, you know ....

Ok, found my mistake
when selecting reciever type,I selected spectrum,since I am using that tech
I should have selected the 1st type listed
just did a quick test fly on what little battery I had left

Tomorrow I will work on the naza setup on my 550 hex
Thanks for letting me bounce the difficulties around with you guys
