I ve been flying a quadcopter with apm 2.6 for awhile now. But recently it started acting weird. It keeps landing on its own all of a sudden. Its totally well within range , in fact all the times this happened, the drone was within 10 meters from me. Today it crashed all of a sudden and i figured the mode has changed to LAND after going through the logs.

Please someone help me understand this. I will attach the log files i dont really know how to read those.

Thanks in advance.

    Not so sure about the brownout assumption because the log ended at altitude, as I am currently trying to find the cause of a crash I had which says the same thing but is not the case as I have dual power supplies and little voltage fluctuation.

    2 Points:

    Test: Event/Failsafe = FAIL - ERR found: FS_THR  is worth following up on. Radio signal or Tx problem?


    Test: VCC = WARN - VCC min/max diff 1.25v, should be <0.3v  could this be causing the Rx to stop? 


    Test: GPS = WARN - Min satellites: 6, Max HDop: 3.69 but you weren't flying in GPS modes so that should not cause a land.  What FS settings do you have?

    Radio issues seems to dominate the log at the point of crash, but I am not that experienced at reading these.
