strange behaviour of pixhawk-request help to understand


I am building a 1300mm octocopter with 30AH lipo. I want to be using a tegra tx1 for onboard visual processing coming from a sony a6000. 

I have built the drone and assembled it. I have configured it as usual. I was using the external compass on the m8n gps. and when the compass calibration happened both of them had similar reading all under 150. I have also done a compass motor calibration for the offset.

however when I took it to the field and wanted to test it in autonomous mode, it started behaving weirdly. below is the auto diagnosis of the data log and also please find attached the flight log.

I fail to understand what could have gone wrong. I would appreciate any help solving it. I wish to fly the machine and then work the tegra part.
