Well today I went for a test flight, trying to get my octocopter under control because I have an important demo to do on Saturday for a potential client. It did not go as expected. Here is my config :
- RCTimer F1000 Cinestar Clone
- RCtimer HP4108 380KV motors
- RCTimer 40A ESC (SimonK)
- 14x4.7 carbon props
- APM 2.5
- 2 x 5800 Zippy 6S
- Brushless gimbal + 1 5000 3S for power + 1 gopro
The first 2 crashes happened like this : I'm flying at about 10 m high and lower my throttle, the copter goes down slowly and at 3 meters or so I'm going full throttle with absolutely NO effect. The copter just crashed on the ground. 2 times. 1 crab leg broken.
I'm going up in the air for a third time, then this time it starts spinning like crazy then crashes. 1 prop broken.
So please, take a look at my logs as I cannot understand what is going on. As one would expect, I'm really frustrated because it's not the first time the APM gets out of control and I break stuff.
Thanks in advance for your time guys !
