"1. Try checking the status pane of the HUD and see if the 2nd accel values are around 18000 (if so its a imu2 problem, which is fairly common). 2. Could be a reception issue, check the status link near the com/connect button and see what the link…"

3.1.5 APM Loiter Flip

Hi,I am about to dig out my old APM which is a clone that I purchased before I purchased the Original 3DR Pixhawk.The last episode with the Clone APM resulted in a flip while in loiter. The graphs also show a divergence when I compare DROLL to ROLL & DPITCH to PITCH.Id like to use this APM again on another QUAD but before I do I want to identify what caused the flip. Any idea what I should check for? The last error message is ERROR-MAIN 1. What does that mean?…See More
