Why I cant arm my quad unless connected to mission planner


Does the pixhawk have to be connected to mission planner for you to fly in loiter mode?

I appear to be unable to arm my copter when there's a fast flashing green light. I get a amber light come on briefly. HOwever everytime I connect it to mission planer it has been switched to land mode despite the switch on the radio is in loiter mode.

If I switch between the mode whilest connected to mission planner it's works as expected.

I have made sure the  failsafe for the station and battery are turned off then written them to the dataflash.

Any help will be greatly appreciated as this is confusing.

Try apmplanner2 and post the .tlog it produces.

GCS failsafe is most likely to be the reason
