Crash with Arduplane 2.76, in FBWA mode

Had a bad crash today flying in FBWA, with a plane that has logged 100+ flights without any issues. Only change was upgrade to 2.76. Was flying level at full throttle, and the plane just took a nose dive straight down. I have never seen any behavior like this in FBWA mode before, so I am weary of 2.76. Has anybody else reported these kinds of issues with 2.76.? There could have been some other failure, but too much damage to really know now.

I will look for log files to attach once I figure out where they are.

  • Log file attached. There is a high probably that my plane suffered some sort of air-frame failure as I was flying on a pretty windy day, and going full throttle at the time of the crash, and the plane was going around 36m/s however it would be a good think to verify that nothing in the software caused the issue. Being a software engineer myself, I know how easy it is to blame the code when some other 'user' error was the reason. 

    Thanks, Patrick

    I've had problems with v2.76 too, would need to see the logs to see if it's related.
