"The problem was solved today, with a new and final crash... This time the plane was flying ok until I changed the flight mode to "manual" (something that I did not experimented in the last 30 or 40 flights), the plane entered in a sharp…"

"I don't see any tape on the right aileron, only on the left, so I am guessing that the left already ripped out and was fixed with tape but the right was never taped... never trust the EPO as a hinge, I always cut it away and use tape as a hinge…"

"Hi Hein, My guess is a structural fault too, but I don't see any evidence of that. I can post some pictures of the crashed airframe, but seems that all broken parts was due the ground impact. The tlog shows a lot of data when you load the log…"

"Sorry about your crash. Unfortunately the log is not of much use as it only contains GPS data. I'm assuming it wasn't a pixhawk, hence the limitation. From the video, I my gut feel is something went wrong with the plane structurally -…"

"Ok, I think that I have a self explanation for the successive crashes: Afro esc, many people having sync problems with Afro esc's and default firmware. I'll flash them with Blheli. Regards, Daniel"

Octo APM flip & crash - Esc sync issues? (help)

Hi,I have a Octo with APM2.6, ArduCopter V3.2.1 , MK3638 motors and 30A Afro esc's (Simonk). This setup won't fly. The last 2 flights resulted in flip and crash (after a few minutes in the air flying ok).Today, in the first flight one motor stopped in the air and I managed to get it back to the ground safely. After landing, the motor still did not working until I restart the APM. I decided recalibrate the esc's (all at once, because I was in the filed, but previously I have calibrated one by…See More

"I start to think that the issue is not just the follow me mode, but a incompability bug between Droidplanner & AC3.1 too. Yesterday I flew a Hexa (apm 2.5 AC3.1) and a Quad (Megapirate 2.9) with a tablet + Droidplanner 2.0 (Beta). The quad…"
