I think there is a bug in 3.1-rc7. I am using the 3DR mini osd (updated to v2.0 including character set) and the flight mode is not displaying. Difficult when flying FPV. Everything else displaying fine.
The setup is AMP 2.5,…"
I put in 8 motors in the ecalc and 11" props and then increased the requirments by about 15%. Maybe that does not work.
What kind of frame do you have for your Octo? And wow, this U8 motor is amazing except it needs a 28" prop…"
I am planning my next build using the F800R from Rctimer.
What are you guys using for the PMU? The 3DR Power unit is not capable of handling the power, so I guess you are connecting a BEC directly to the APM2.5?
A recommendation would be…"
"Thank you Leonardthall,
I agree, I am investigating the possibility of a motor/mechanical failure, that combined with low voltage/underpowered X8 would definitely cause something like this. Even if there was one motor failure on the left rear arm,…"
I have the AfroEcs 20A from Hobbyking which have the SimonK firmware.
I also found all the error codes on the 3DR wiki. Thanks for pointing that out.
The thing is that the cutoff is too sudden after the RTL. As I indicated before, in my…"
Yes, I recall that during the final second or two after the cutoff and while it was coming down I was throttling up and down hopelessly to get something. What I distinctly remember is that when the copter was not upside down, the…"
"Thanks Vince, Yes It would be great if Randy or Leonard take a look. I understand my voltage was kinda borderline but the sudden cutoff is still a mystery.
And yes, I have started the rebuild. I ordered a new lens for nex5T also I could not get a…"
"Thank you John, I truly appreciate it. Given the following:
1- I was relying on my Spektrum TM1000 voltage alarm on my DX8, it was set to 10.2 Volts and there was no alarm.
2- I was in a controlled descent (Loiter) and hence I still had…"
No telemetry or OSD unfortunately for this flight. I simply wanted to go up vertically, take a couple of pictures and come down. I rely on my spektrum TM1000 voltage monitor which starts my DX8 vibrating like crazy when the voltage drops…"
"But John, I had qty(2) Batteries at 5800mah EACH. If you look a the previous log (6.log) of the previous flight, I consumed almost 10000mah without a problem. The Batteries where fully charged when I started. That was my second takeoff. The…"
