Drone just shuts off

Post by larry31 » 23 Jun 2018, 02:24

Bebop 2 drone, and Galaxy tablet 2 with FreeFlight pro.

Is it possible for the Bebop 2 to just shut off? Props, and video to just go off ?
I've lost contact with the drone before, but it kept flying.

My "LAST" flight took off ok, flew up to about 20 - 30 feet, and just stopped, fell to ground.
It was like the main power shut off. ( The battery was showing 85% at take off. It only flew for less than a minute.)

Does this kind of thing happen?

Hello,

this can be happen and it usually happens when the battery is almost dead, old or exhausted. The voltage drops so fast under load that the Bebop can not react like it would normally do. (Send battery warning and then just land)

Sweet and delicious apps for your drones.

This battery was just charged up before the flight.
It failed to power the drone up right after the crash. I put it on the Parrot charger for a short time, and then it did power the drone up.
Could this be a case of this battery going bad? Do batteries fail suddenly like that?
