Hello! I am having a problem where my aircraft will reduce throttle to zero when I switch on Auto or Loiter Mode.
Here are a few things to note:
I have an airspeed sensor, so did the following:
I was thinking it might be altitude related so tried the following
Does anyone have any suggestions? I searched the forum and saw some similar issues but it did not appear any of the solutions worked.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
EDIT: I think I found a relevant log file, and have attached it.
I had the same problem during my setup in my ground tests but in flight such thing did not happen. (I almost took a risk). at that time I thought it is matter of speed. now it seems it is not! now it is more risky. I had arduplane 2.72!
I appreciate any kind of explanation!
Well, i figured it out. the throttle channel was revsered. lol... i had assumed this was not the issue since it powered up on the ground... but... alas it was. now i have an altitude problem, but thats a problem for another day!
Wouldn't your altitude problem be related to your throttle issue? If you are in an Auto mode and the AP is calling for increased power due to diminishing altitude, with a reversed throttle a call for increased throttle would result in less throttle and an increasing call for more power as altitude continues to diminish.
