Hello All. First off, thank you to all who have worked so hard for this community!!
I am posting this here(as opposed to the main thread) on the advice of other members.
I just had an event happen with a new quad I assembled.
I know the setup was incomplete on this quad. I had intended to fly only in stabilize to test my camera gimble.
I had an RTL trigger with a resulting significant crash and would like to know why.
If someone could please help analyze my Flash log(no telemetry during this flight) for clues, I would greatly appreciate it.
My setup is as follows:
APM 2.5 with ublox and seperate external compass.
Dji 450 motors and arms and 10x4.5 props with a custom spider style frame.
30amp simon K flashed f30 speed controls from RCmanchild
Tarot Gopro gimbal with separate 1000mah 3s pack
Single 2800mah 3s main pack(incorrectly setup as a 5600mah dual pack in apm)
FRsky tfr4-b receiver with ppm single input to apm
Futaba T8FG transmitter
900mhz 3dr telemetry( Not connected during this flight)
The flight went like this. powered up quad, turned on Gopro(in wifi mode) and took off to get an aerial shot of a bus leaving an event. It was windy, but quad was quite stable. I got up to about 100 feet alt and about 100 feet away and quad did a piroette(spelling?) then stabilized momentarily, then pitch hard forward and away it went from 100' to the ground at about a 25degree angle. I know the logs show RTL triggered. Can someone tell me specifically why?
What I assume was a Radio failsafe. But it appears to me the roll in and pitch in are still registering my stick inputs.
******Attached Tlog is for reference only. It is from my only previous test flight. Exact same config as main event. There is outdoors hovering with GPS lock at about 70% in this Tlog*****
Here is a link to the onboard video from this event.
Thank you for any help on this,
