Update of from 3.2 goes badly wrong

Hi I have several quads and hex and all running 3.2.  I updates my IRIS+ successfully but when I connected the hex it updated to 3.1.2 and thats backwards I know.  Its not a typo and it won't allow me to try anything else. even via beta.  Then i wondered if that would happen to my other amp 2.6 quad and that did exactly the same.  Cannot use sonar and am very frustrated as to how to get it back to 3.2.When i finally do manage that how do we stop this happening again on future UPDATES?Any help…See More

"Thats not the case for me.  Connected my IRIS+ and it told me of update so I installed it 3.2.1  Then i connected my Hex apm2.6 and updates without really paying too much attention as it was just the same as for iris+ right?  Wrong.…"

"Looks like MOT_SPIN_ARM is set to 70, have you tried increasing it slightly? I don't use spin on arm, but do you motors spin up as soon as you lift the throttle? Wondering if there is a dead band at the bottom. Your bin log is longer than 1 or…"

Hi everyone, Ive got a F550 converted to 680 with DYS 65oKV motors and APM 2.6.Had 3.1.5 installed initially but upgraded to 3.2.  Since then I get about a max 1-2 mins flight time on 4S 8500mah battery and no motors spinning on arming.  This is completely weird behaviour and since 3.2 cannot even look at the logs properly and no terminal to do reset....What is wrong with this and how can I either erase the amp and reinstall 3.1.5 or at least fix the issues I am having.Any advice please…See More

"Hi Henri, Having looked closely at yor site and system may I ask if it oNLY deploys when the operator uses the switches. I mean is it in any way autonomous? Sensore initiating the sequence when it feels it going wrong? Thanks, great work. C"

Conrad Allen replied to Henri's discussion Skycat parachute launcher for Drones
"Has anyone thought of using an arduino nano or micro to control this part so it's not taking any APM space or coding. I mean it could be a bolt on and with accelerometers it should be able to interact with input pins etc"
