A friend had an accident, how much more you have to tell people to remove the props when uploading a new firmware.
Dude saying it was a "software error" on Multiwii...
and this is the result:
How'd it get both of your hands?
I have been so worry about this same issue that I made up some prop rotation blocker using duct tape on my Octo Coax that I slip on every time after flying.
This works great with the coaxial config but not on a quad, it will be great to have some piece of hardware that block the motor rotation when we work on our helis.
Like a U shaped staple that we could drop on any prop and that will lock onto the arm.
I hope your friend recovers quickly.
Frederic, that's a great idea. I think someting similar could be done for quads. Just a simple, single loop that slips over the blade and arm.
I can think of a more dangerous habit.
Need "THROTTLE HOLD" for multi-copter!!!!!!
@Jack: i agree, but motors are disarmed when i play with the quad in my hands... :-)When upload firmware to all boards you must use a little power supply (or USB, when avaiable like in APM2) without plug the main LiPo battery! This is a know rule...Before handling the quad in the hands with the LiPo connected will be confident enough of its own wiring and the software will not crash by moving the electronics, I have run many tests in this direction before being sure that all was well.The "throttle hold" is useless, just arm the motors when the quad is on the ground and disarm them before taking it in his hands, do not emulate me!Multirotors are not a toys.
yeap ... multi rotor is not a toy ...
this is my accident with one of my big hexa
this occur by a i2c bus fail
It's getting better my hands. I couldn't forsee this. Marco, I didn't even touch my Tx :). Everything is caused by the software. It was the multiwii calibration process that started the quad.
