I had a horrible indoor crash today after I armed my motors.
I was in stabilize mode, the quad changed direction towards one side and crashed into the wall, broke 2 props, 2 motor shaft bent. I have to check the 20Amp ESC's if they got burnt in the process due to over current :( Bled my arm in order to save the other two props!!
I had my GEO Fence ON. After I see the log, it shows has triggered a fail-safe (RTL) as I breached the fence? I am unable to interpret why this has happened? Outside, it flew like a charm the last time I flew.
Why did it breach the fence. It was supposed to be in Stabilize. No waypoints, simple indoor flight in STAB mode.
Subsystems/ Error codes:
9: Fence, ECode 2: circular fence breached
Log attached, any comments will be helpful
How would GPS ever be accurate enough for the confines of a small room?
Simple! Just glue some GPS satellites to the ceiling! (=:
Again, my understanding is that it doesn't matter how many sats you get indoors (or in other places with lots of walls, like city streets), the "multipathing" phenomena - basically like echoes/reflections - can screw it all up.
Either you do not understand , or refuse to accept what everyone is telling you.
You can only fly indoors in STAB mode IF GEO FENCING IS TURNED OFF.
That was the perfect answer I was looking for. Thanks for the detailed explanation.
@Wessie: I missed out on the fact that STABILIZE mode will indeed use the GPS when the fence is breached when GEO Fence is ON. Right, I accept it! I thought (as per wiki) that Stabilize mode DOES NOT use the GPS.
@@ I think there should be an edit to the WiKi on such an exception so that others are aware of it (probably, as a RED warning!! ). I will however look into the code to get this clearer!
