Running python scripts from Mission Planner

Hi, I tried running the default python script from to make my octocopter take off and roll, but when I ran the script, the motors seemed to arm, but then shut off, without the copter taking off.

Does anyone know why it didn't increase the throttle to take off?

  • In that code you have to add your own arming python script and for take off too. I did it with out props (if my copter is in roll then i can hear variation in motors RPM). can you please tell me on which multicopter model you are running all these scripts. I have F450 and 550 but i don't wanna brake those frames, so if you are using any other frame for it then please let me know. Thanks.

    • It already arms in the example. Do you have code for takeoff?
