Drone just stops flying

Post by BeachFlyer » 16 Nov 2012, 16:40

On several occasions my fairly new AR 2.0 just simply stops and drops. I am free flying at no great range or height outside with outdoor hull on then goes into emergency shut down. Any ideas cause the last one broke the cross Andi don't want to have to keep replacing bits when I'm not even the one causing the crash!

No errors on the screen?

Have heard this before and it must be a firmware issue as I can't see how all the motors would just stop. Unless there is a loose connection?
Is there no log we can get from the drone to investigate these mid flight problems we get?

Tilt Emergency shut-down?

The error message on the screen should tell you if it's a too much angle emergency.

If you were at height over 3m it should disable that anyway so maybe it's not it.

How high was your drone at the time?

dotcom we'd be happy to help you with your issue but please post a separate thread about your own specific problem and try to include as much information about your drone when you do so we can better help you diagnose your problem.
