Hoping someone can halp me here. I did post this question in Pixhawk group but thought I would post here as my problem may be more relevant to Plane.
I’ve already had a few successful flights with Pixhawk in my Skywalker X-5 flying wing – all flights were in a park right next to my house. I decided to go to my local flying club yesterday but I could not get the Pixhawk to arm (flashing yellow). In Mission Planner I looked at the Flight Data map and it shows 6Km to home! I then look at the Flight Plan tab and see the “H” over my house!
So, it’s obvious that my home point has not been reset when I powered up the Pixhawk at my club. I can confirm that I did get a valid GPS fix and there was no reason shown in the little telemetry/horizon box in Mission Planner. I did have a good internet connection at the flying club and brought up the map which showed my plane sitting right where I was.
I can only presume that the distance to home is what denied me the ability to arm because when I got home I tried again and was able to arm. But what's interesting is that I was in my back garden when I powered it up and noticed that the Flight Data map showed the model on the other side of my house which is where I first powered up the Pixhawk (first ever after buying it). I'm stumped!
When I was at the model club field I did try right click the plane symbol in the Flight Data map and selected “Set Home Here” but that did nothing.
Thanks in advance,
