3DR RTF 2013 Problems

Not sure what to do, I just got this last week and I am having issues. A couple of days ago it took off to one side and crashed and broke one of the legs. Today I was doing some basic hovering and again it took off, this time right at me. After getting 20 stitches I need to find out what is wrong. Where should I start to find the problem?

    • This may be the case but I still want to know what happened, part of the learning process. The documentation is so scattered, should I read the wiki's (https://code.google.com/p/arducopter/) or docs on http://3drobotics.com/learn/? Or both, what is the latest? Also, there seems to be little documentation on how to pair and setup a transmitter. 

      It seems the lights on APM should be easier to see, on my 3DR RTF 2013 they are not that easy to see.

      I am now going to take some time to get my transmitter (Turnigy 9x) to display flight data, as well as find different battery connectors that are easier to take apart. 

      • copter.ardupilot.com is the primary source for documentation. Google code documentation is all deprecated.

  • I wasn't using APM Planner, just the remote. Are the logs stored in the Quad?
    • Yes..  The APM creates and stores dataflash logs in its internal memory for each flight...   Below is a link explaining how to extract them:

      • How do you download the logs if you were using Droidplanner2? 

      • Here are the logs of another day when it just took off.

      • This is what I was able to pull

        This came from APM Planner 2 (mac), I found Mission Planner provides all the logs. I will upload those once it is done downloading.

        • I hope someone can help me out.

    Sorry to hear that! If you can post your logs here, I'll ask one of the experts to look at them and figure out what went wrong.
