So I just had 2 wrecks in a row from what could only be described and cronic interference... one messed up an APM board and damaged other parts. It is ok, but I think it happened when the failsafe kicked in on a low throttle input... anyway I had spare parts so things back together. The problem is the GPS or the board is getting tons on interference from something. When I tried to put it into Loiter mode it looked like it was a shooting star. Luckily I flipped it back in time. I have not run compass mot as of yet.
This is the sixth Arducopter rid I have setup from scratch. It flies beautifully in stabalize but anything else it goes crazy.
Anyway, I am not running anything all that different than my other quad, infact, the GPS is the same one (6M ublox). It works fine and dandy in the mission planner.
Anyway, it seems that ever since I put the Power Module -or- the telementry things have started going batty.
I installed a FPV setup nearby the APM (a 600mW immersionRc, hooked to telemetry, hooked to a 3 channel video switcher), but removed it for the test which resulted in the second wreck. I *thought* it was the video stuff but now I am stumped.
I added some pics of this rig, what I am wondering is what is Biggest culprit of ~~interference~~ and what is the best way to deal with it, eg. Video transmission, GPS, AMP etc..?
Thanks in advance!
