"I had not been previously adding a RTL at the end of the mission.  That is probably why it was landing at the end.  I tried to test this theory today but my quad ended up in a tree :(.  Thankfully all that was damaged was the props,…"

"JaredM,      Is it possible the first LAND happened when it thought it completed the mission?  I see you have 6 commands and it got to the 5the one at least.  What's the last command in the mission?  Any…"

"That does not make sense I keep track of how long I can foy and I can get 6 min no problem. If you look in that picture you can see there is an earlier land command about half way through the flight. I also find it odd that the command is issued at…"

"Damm. That's exactly what i was going to say.... Pip at the 1000 post ;-) though it was a close call between that and reaching 10.5 low volts on the smaller battery."

"The battery failsafe is being kicked off not by the low voltage but by the battery capacity.  Looks like you've got the battery capacity set to 3300 and the estimated battery used is 3386 in the CURR message just before it switches to…"

"I did not think of that but multiple times the error / land is initiated at a way-point that is not the farthest away from my home position.   I just checked my settings I have the geofence turned off. Thanks for the suggestion."

"Can't see properly as I'm on a phone but might it be that you're hitting the geofence roof of 100m all? Freaked me out the first time it happened. "

Help with Determining Error that Flight Had ERROR

Hey Guys I am new to analyizing things using the log files but yesterday I had my Quad freak out.  I was flying in a combination of loiter and stabilize.  I took my quad up higher to take a better look and it stopped listening to my transmitter.  It went into Land Mode and would no listen to any commands.  Any help in determining the error or what caused it would be greatly appreciated.  See More
