"mmm....one day happens to me, I disconnect and connect again and works, if repeat the issue perhaps we have to report to devs, I had the issue only one time for the moment."

Telemetry data reported as zero's during auto mission

When Flying IRIS+ auto missions using Tower app. V. 3.2.0  Telemetry data is reported (voice) as zero.  Altitude zero meters, speed zero meters, etc.  What gives?   The mission flies as planned and IRIS comes home and lands without issue.  When free flying with Tx and Tower is connected the telemetry data is announced correctly?  Anyone have an Idea what could be wrong??See More

"hi Mark:I also have an IRIS + (actually replacement IRIS+ from March 2015) and haven't had many GPS issues and my Hdop is typically low 1.4 to 1.7.  The caveat here is I usually have 9+ sat.  I like the idea of the GPS on the mast and…"

"I had the same issue with mine.  To solve the problem I used JB Weld.  its an automotive product, and hardens literally like a rock.  First I unscrewed the mount post from the Tx then used JBW to permanently keep it from unscrewing.…"

mark truesdale replied to Justin M's discussion 3DR Iris Screwed Me Again! in the group IRIS
"As inexperienced as I am..I would respectfully disagree. The motors stopped and THEN the iris crashed. A low charge bat. Should trigger a low bat. Failsafe and land. The logs will tell."

mark truesdale replied to Justin M's discussion 3DR Iris Screwed Me Again! in the group IRIS
"So sorry see that. The motors stopped. Did the battery door open and let the battery fall out or did it fall out after crashing. I feel your pain brother. I'm convinced my first iris was a lemon. My replacement hasn't had any issues.…"

"Hi Justin, I'm traveling for a few days and fishing for a few days so if I don't respond right away that's why. As far as the time of the flight the actual log file name begins with the date and is followed by a series of numbers…"

"Hi Justin.  Not sure how your particular capacity controller works but you definitely NEED to read the instructions.  LiPo Batteries are truly great but not without risk. read about them and use the LiPo charger "bag"  So…"

mark truesdale replied to Kris Kitchen's discussion Landing drone flips over and will not turn off? in the group IRIS
"Hi Kris:I think a "death" switch is a good idea.   I had my IRIS fly almost out of sight it was so high (1,100+ feet) .  Fortunately, I had pitch/roll/yaw so I could keep it overhead, but no throttle.  After a 300'…"

Heller Gregory replied to mark truesdale's discussion Pre-Flight Check list in the group IRIS
"Yes, kind of like a watch or phone compass needs to calibrate.  You can USB it to your computer using the APM software.  I find it easier to use the Tower software on my tablet & use the telemetry.  Take the props off and place it…"

"Hi Heller.  Always good to have an exit plan.   when you say calibrate it every time, do you mean the IRIS compass?  "

Heller Gregory replied to mark truesdale's discussion Pre-Flight Check list in the group IRIS
"Calibrate it every time, especially if you've had a hard landing.   Quick pre-check for switches before take off in case you get in trouble for your exit plan.  Especially loiter, gives you a second to think.   I'm finding…"
