Loiter issues - big circle

I am having som issues with Loiter that I want to find out about. Sometimes Loiter is almost perfect on the spot, maybe drifting 1 meter or so, but I have had situations where in Loiter the copter starts circling pretty fast in a quite large circle with diameter of perhaps 10 meters or so, going round and round never settling down. If i then try to stabilize it and start up Loiter again it starts up with this circling. What could cause this?

  • What Arducopter version? 2.9.1b? others?

    How is your Compass Learning param?

    For 2.9.1b try to have compass learning disabled.

    let us know if works.

  • Hi, I experienced nearly the same behavior, but circle movement was slow and narrow in the beginning, but was getting faster and bigger. If I put the copter in a steady hover before I activate loiter everything seem fine, but if I activate loiter while the copter still drifts a little, it starts the circling. If there is a little wind the copter will compensate that fine, but I believe I saw the circling also under heavier wind conditions.
