"Frank. The only thing I tried was to go back to 3.1 but the quad flew terribly. The impact made contact between the PX4 and a water pipe. Not sure if the PX4 is toast. Will do a few more tests first. Thanks for your update. Cheers, Andy"

"Thanks Randy! Always good to know exactly what caused something. Would a full recalibration be ok or should I hold off on trying 3.2 on this PX4 again? Cheers, Andy"

"Never know, I was in stabilize mode. Will try to get the logs if I can, PX4 is beat up pretty bad. Copter hit an overhead water pipe in my studio. Might sound insane to test inside but imagine if this was outside! Yikes!!!"

"Just like any Align heli I have built, it's a good idea to disassemble completely, add loctite and rebuild. It's a royal pain but crashing hurts more. Andy"

Andy Horka replied to Randy's discussion ArduCopter-3.1 released!
"Hi Eran, Brandon is correct but 0,-1,0 are not realistic numbers and seem to be another example of the 1.2.99 mission planner weirdness."
