I'm new here.
Flew 6 successful missions with a little ST Models Discovery trainer in the past two days until my last one went terribly wrong and I lost my plane. Please help.
The plane followed the set commands as planned up until the last waypoint before returning home. At the last waypoint I lost GPS signal and shortly after lost telemetry.
My question is, where would the plane go once GPS is lost? I have no Idea where to look.
Some stats of the plane and the mission are.
ST models Dicovert trainer
5A external BEC
3600mah 11.1 V lipo
900mhz Xbee telemetry
The mission was planned close to the shoreline with heavy fog being present and the plane having to fly in the fog belt. I never had the plane in sight during the mission. I have done this successfully previously.
Mission length was 5,3KM long which should not pose a problem for the battery.
Please look at the attached log file to try and figure out where my plane went after losing GPS fix.
I am suspecting the GPS went haywire because of water accumulating on it while flying in the fog belt.
