Quad goes to full throttle when selecting height hold or loiter (Love that phrase)

I am on the latest code and have managed to mix my Hitec tx with two channels to give me at least five flight modes.


Hovering in Stable mode is fine but when I select height hold or loiter, the qaud flies aggresivly off at an angle as though it needs to go somewhere fast.


I now hold it in my hand and when I select these modes, all motors seem to go to to full throttle.


Does anyone have any idea what the problem is.  I have only altered the PIDs for stable mode and haven't touched anything else.


I know that this stuff is early beta but I'm sure that the team wouldn't release the code if this were a known issue.


BTW - comiserations to the guy who lost his quad in the last few days due to issues with the latest code.  I imagine that it just flew away out of control......

This is very  helpful but I'd appreciate it if you clarify which is the channel that transmits flight mode to ArduPilot (CH5?)

Thank you

Yes Wilson Channel 5 is the one

Thanks. Excuse the delay. I Solved. Maybe I'm going to put a video on you tube

Hi Patrik,

I really liked your approach and I am using it in my setup. Thanks for the detailed information provided.

Question, since you have setup RTL on the trainer switch I would assume you have to hold it until it lands in order to operate properly, otherwise it will go into the previous set mode, right?

did you find the answer?

You should Install vibration damper for z axis vibration

its not vibration damper I reloaded firm ware now in stead of rise it falls I have another that once you move the stick past middle it goes full throttle in alt hold just holding in my hand no props I had one fly away never to be found  I think its setting a glitch some where be cause I had one that was perfect same setup
