installed new cross, drone flies crazy

Post by HAL 9000 » 16 Aug 2012, 19:21

Hey all. I installed a new cross bar and props but now when I fly my drone and I try to increase altitude, it just keeps going up unless I command it to come down. Same happens if I try to lower the drone, it keeps going unless I tell it to go back up. Any suggestions?

Did you try doing a reset of the drone?

okay, just did the reset. It launched and did a calibration spin. Still has the same problem. everything else works fine, just won't stop climbing of dropping unless I command it in the opposite motion.

On my drones, I do have to keep my finger ready to increase altitude or reduce it at times. Like when I'm flying and changing directions or going over uneven ground.
It sounds like you may be having a different problem. It's possible in the time it took you to get and change your cross, your props could have come out of shape. This condition could possibly prevent your drone from maintaining altitude.
Check your props for straightness, Look up DroneBonerStallone, he has the best fix advise for straight props.

Good luck, I'll be thinking of what could be causing your problem. Check the props though....

Sounds almost like an ultrasound problem... like the drone doesn't know where it is... double check the white ribbon cable with blue tips and make sure it's attached properly

Probably not the reason for those symptoms, but could it be worth checking the right props are on the right motors? ( A and C )

for the record, I also tried to move the bottom plate over so the sensor was more centered thourgh the little clear window and I cleaned the sensor with a microfiber cloth. Also reseated the blue white cable.
