i've just samshed my Arducopter :
fliying with the latest and greatest code : everthing well.
hoovering around a bit but suddenly the Arducopter flipped to his back and crashed to the ground.....
everythin with my 2.4 GHZ rec 7 Trans is ok.
any idea ? or is it stlii too much " BETA " ?
You absolutely have to get rid of the connectors, but when they failed on me, that motor would drop out, and it would crash.
I also had some kind of APM lockup that sent one motor full throttle in mid air. Definitely a different flip and crash style to it than the bad connector.
i tested with the arducopter in my hands : moved the chassis while the 4 motors were spinning slow :
suddenly on motor " rebboted " doing it's beeps ( initializing ).
what do you mean with" bulled connectors " ?
Like the other guys, I don't like those bullet connectors - I don't know what the designers of those connectors were thinking when the came up with the idea. When I was flying 3D helis indoors I used to solder the moving part of the connector so that a good connection was made.
Anyway, my suggestion is to also check the rotor blades are tight. On my very first flight with my quad one of the arms dipped as I was about 6 inches off the ground. A check revealed why - a loose prop. I'm glad it happened so close to the ground.
I've had the same problem. I'll solder all the connectors now.
How do you guys know that the connectors were failing (apart from the fact that they look dodgy)?
