"All my power loss events have been when using deans connectors on my batteries. When connected i would move the battery wires and see the APM lose and then regain power. I changed to XT60 connectors and no longer have any problems.
You gotta remember the old saying "Measure twice, cut once". I did the same thing during the testing of my Maja drone when I bypassed the normal battery cables and incorrectly hooked a spare battery directly into the CC Phoenix ICE…"
