Okay, so this is kind of along term update…
By now, I had to change some parts of the projects. instead of using an LTE modem, I switched to a cheap set of 433mhz transcievers. These worked very well and reliably on the ground and I was quite happy to get ready for the first flight.
I set up the plane and checked out every controll surface just like the ardupilot first flight page suggestet. I also checked basic functionallity with the motor running, to check for interferrence and power instabillity.
everything worked, so I went to flying. during the takeoff phase, i had little or no controll over the plane. The plane crashed in a quite spectacular fashion, but the demage seems to be okay and reparable with some heavy duty glue.
the very strange thing about the crash was, that the motor started to run with full power after the crash, although I dissabeled it on my rc it did not stop, until I pulled the battery.
I am quite frustrated by now. I guess the powersupply failed under the high motor load, although the Navio wasconnected to everything just like recommendet in the docs. Also I should mention, that I was unable to calibrate the accelerometer, so I skipped the arming checks. The plane was in manual mode all the time, so the accelerometer shouldn’t have had any effect.
Is there anything I can do to test for this, and how can I get the accelerometer to complete the calibration?
