I had a great flight today! The quad soared to over 500ft high. I select land flight mode and she came down with not problem. My radio is limited, I've only got a 2 position toggle on channel 5 I figured land was safer than RTL while I am getting used to flying it. My 2200 3c LiPO only last 5 minutes LMAO.
I've got to save up for a bigger battery now that I know this puppy can carry it and a gopro with no problem at all!
When I got in the house tonight I decided to remove the props and test to see what would happen if I lost the radio link to my transmitter. I got the idea to test because I know if I soared too high, too fast I would have been out of range. Well... I fired up the quad, armed it (with props off of course!) and proceeded to give 50% throttle. I shut my radio off. My quadcopter went to full throttle!!!! If this was during flight she would have ascended until out of power!.. so how can I fix this ?
Is it better to drop to LAND or RTL mode ? RTL under the worse conditions could fail, but if you are flying along the surf of a beach or in the mountains LAND flight mode would certainly mean trouble.
How are you programming Failsafe mode ?
