"MP is corrupting your log by adding bad MODE FMT message, if you use ApmPlanner2 for analysis in the future, you'll be much better off :)   "

"ApmPlanner2 had some problems visualising the log. Did you use some GCS to download it (which) ? Or did that APM had a SD card ? Thank you"

GPS 3D "dgps" ??

So I ordered a new GPS module to pair with my PXFMini which is sitting on a RaspberryPi3 B+....  Took a bit of doing but I finally got it all configured nicely, no more compass variation errors, heading looks to be representing the true heading, GPS locks quickly and averages about 8 to 9 satellites.  Finished up this afternoon and decided to put the props on to do a run up test this evening.  When I booted up the RPi and connected through Mission Planner, everything was good, but I checked the…See More

"BTW: the reason you could not see mode, is that is incorrectly formatted, (FMT)  - how did you produce the log, converted it from something, or downloaded from an older hardware autopilot ?"

"it enters auto on line 906, and RTL due to battery failsafe at 27218 , and land at 31641 battery drops to 9,47v (3.15v per cell, assuming 3s is very bad), so it's not really flyable at that point) you are using old firmware, with little logging…"

I set up a mission, had it take off in auto, When it got about 200 feet away, the transmitter lost signal, the signal from the SIC radio was still good.(telemetry on the tablet) ... on the way back, that started losing signal and then the quad went off course and got stuck in a tree.  On the log file, I dont even see anywhere that it shows it was in auto mode.  I am also not very good at reading these log files yet so I could be missing it.  Is  there a way to find out:1) why I lost signal so…See More

Cause of fly away when selecting RTL

     Because of some problems with the SBus upgrade, I decided to completely wipe out and start over on my 2.6.  When going out for first test flight tonight, I was really pleased with how well it took off and hovered!  Actually even better than before when using the parameters which I had spent some time tuning.  So stabilize mode was great, a little more aggressive in the rates than I like or remember them being before the rebuild, but just fine for a first flight.     The first time I put it…See More
