Hello all,

I did a test with an auto mission and the ground station today.

It was a simple mission with some waypoints.

Something similar worked already before.

The only difference was that I armed the coper (Hexa) in the "Actions" tab and set the Auto mode there too (on ground).

After rising the throttle a little the mission seems to start but it was just a loiter above the start point.

I decided to turn off the auto mission and land but when I switched to a different mode (Alt hold) with the remote control the motors stopped and the thing came down (flipped) from about 15m :-(

Is this a known problem?

What went wrong?

Regards,

Bernd

    No logs provided so it's hard to be sure but I'll bet the throttle was at zero when the copter was switched to alt-hold.  There was a warning in the original 2.9 release thread (but sadly not in the 2.9.1b release thread) that warned of this issue.  If you'd raised the throttle above zero it would have recovered.
