"Z axis vibrations! I've had a look at your log, and they're really bad. They should be between -5 and -15. From this log they're between +20 and -30.  Your X and Y vibrations aren't too good either. Have a look at balancing…"

I have a pair of graupner 9x5's i used and they were solid in stab mode. The issue comes with Alt-Hold, as soon as i put it in the Alt-Hold mode, the drone pops up and down pretty fast. There's something wierd with the baro, i've tried two different APM boards (both 2.6), tried different variations of foam covering…See More

Pixhawk wierd glitch

I was flying today around my neighborhood. Around 6minutes 18 seconds into the flight, the pixhawk twitches hard and pitches up and to the right. I immediately started it back home and seemed to behave fine after that. Looking at the logs i don't see anything crazy. Can someone take a look at these and let me know what happened?
