how to reset drone after a crash with macgyver mode..

Post by obs1234 » 25 Apr 2012, 20:37

Hi All..

playing with my new macgyver mod and I LOVE it!!

one question...when I crash/bump/drift into something, the unit stops. Is there a way to continue right away without having to remove the shell, disconnect the battery then reconnect it, then wait until it syncs again to fly? Kind of a PITA!

Tnx!!!

Dave

As per Macdrones....

After a crash or hard landing the LED’s may turn red indicating the drone is in "emergency mode". If so verifying steps 1 through 6. Then move the left stick to the right, this resets the "emergency mode", you may have to do this a couple times to get the LED’s to turn green. If the LED’s will not reset you can disconnect the battery to reset, if this does not work then battery should be changed.

....Also, make sure 'TAKE OFF'/'LAND' switch is in 'LAND' mode or nothing will happen :)

With my mod, the left toggle switch also has to be in the down (high rate) position or it won't reset. Anyone else's mod do that??
