                  • ok, just to be absolutely sure, I would reload the firmware again.


                    Just to make sure, when you load the firmware, you click on the icon with 8 props (4 green and 4 blue)


                    If that doesn't get it then it leaves me rather stumped and unless someone else has any suggestions, you may have to raise a ticket with 3DR and post a link to this thread. I'd list everything you have done in the precise order to help them figure it out.

        • Hi Toby,

          Thanks for your interest in helping me solve my problem..    OK as far as any changes go i really have amde none.

          I plugged in the Pixhawk, updated the software to latets Version as suggested by the Mission Planner.

          Did all the config as per instuctions in the Manual..  Thats it..  I know not to screw with anyhing else till i  fully understand it.. 

          I will have a look at the flight modes and get back to you.

          Thanks Mate !! 

          Chris

           

          • next time you plug it in, take a copy of the current config and save it somewhere safe.

            Here is the config from my X8 on the day I opened the box and before I changed anything.

            If you get stuck, go back to this and then make changes one by one saving a new param file after each change just in case you screw up.

            • you are a legend !!  I will give this shot !!
