"@  Mike i do agree. I know early days (70's) pratt and whitney engines kept running for 24 hrs on full power with rock and ash thrown at them. I have a very hard time believing that my quad is going to disable a commercial jet…"

"I would have RTL in another switch that overrides the 3 position switch.  I have a 3 pos switch to Stabilize, alt hold, and pos hold/loiter.  By 2 position switch overrides the other for RTL on channel 7/8. "

"I dont understand why we would even ask that question. Why you should not take off in loiter when you are new and are having issues? Because when in that flight mode there are more possibilities that something will and can go wrong...  Its…"

"You see 3.3.3 might expose some vibration issues that 3.2.1 does not. If that quad has very good vibration isolation i would say upgrade if you are not sure id say dont do it.  So it all depends on what size quad it is and how good your…"

"@ MArtin your problem sounds like temp related since you leave the pixhawk outside before you fly it can affect the IMU to the point where it wont arm. Try to short the connector, or try to arm indoors with pixhawk being indoors for more than 10 min…"

"temp is a huge factor with the LSM IMU.  Also how good are your offset values after compass calibration ?  Try to arm indoor. Also shorting the connector that plugs to the battery has always worked for me but that is just a work…"

"Thats enough distance. Two things i would try ALL you guys here who have this issue. 1. Turn off one of the IMUs and use one then see if the issue persists with 1 IMU or with 2 only. Also that way you eliminate which IMU is causing this. 2.…"
