Yeah.... children riding small farm animals. Poor Timmy always wanted that pont and you killed it with your recklessness.

MCrites, are you not concerned with your own safety, while flying inside that metal building full of dangerous machinery? What if you loose your signal or a prop or two and run into yourself or do some property damage. Maybe even hit some small farm animals hiding out in there. I cringe at the thought of it.

I'd aim for the baby pigs... I love me some bacon. Tender tender bacon.

And if I damage the 2inch steel or 40ton cranes then DJI does a fine job on their frames.

failsafe not working in manual


Just flew my hexacopter for the first time yesterday. Tested GPS, ATT and manual mode using 3-position flight sw with success. Course and Homelock worked beautifully which really helps when losing orientation. Finally tested Failsafe in GPS & ATT mode with great success, a little nervous at first!! Also tested Preset failsafe and passed. The only thing that I didn't try was Failsafe in Manual mode. During software calibrating, while in manual mode I could not trip Failsafe on the software. Can anyone help me out to tweek this? Will post photos soon. VERY pleased with Naza & GPS so far.

Explain how you are accomplishing your "switched" Failsafe. (With a mix, I presume?)
Also, does you transmitter support multi-point mixes?
Or does it just have standard mixes?

I see you currently can't adjust gains inflight... what TX are you using?
Let me try it after i got a spare prop,

yes i can adjust it inflight, i just disabled it after i clean my TX, just incase my quad are not flying in full gains

Compass mounting

The reason for the separation is that the compass can see magnetic flux lines from current flowing through wiring to the ESC's. When throttling at higher amps this magnetic interference upsets the compass if close by. The manuf distance is very adequate. Regarding the GPS rcvr and how it listens we are using radio frequency. Interference can be introduced by the line connections. If I have a noisy component I isolate it with a torroid at its neck hoping to Choke off signals. If there is a rcvr involved also a choke (torroid) is used as close to it as possible. Using shielding can work as long as the shield is not resonate to the interference. It can become a attractive antenna.
Reading another post regarding a LC filter used for video interference. It is correct and simpler to use a separate battery to isolate interference. Some LC filtering can get large and heavy to do its design job.

In the software when i do my TX calibration if i hit my gear (failsafe) switch, it goes into failsafe from either ATTI or GPS, but in manual the little arrow calibration indicator doesnt go to a highlighted blue failsafe area but in the bottom right corner where the software says what mode im in, it says failsafe. It also says failsafe if i turn off the transmitter so i guess im right to say that in manual mode whilst flying, if i do need to rescue my butt quickly, then my usual failsafe switch is going to work?

Teamsherman, I seems that you are ok with failsafe. Don't be worried about the failsafe in Manual. There is not enough room for that small area to turn blue. How much do you fly in Manual anyway?

Yeah I am just going to LOS it. I figured i'd be able to maneuver in the tight spaces and line up shots a lot better in first person... but it's not an option. For light purposes I think I will be going back at night next time with the doors closed. Less wind and fan turbulence.
There are digital video options, but COFDM transmitters and encoders will run you ~$30k, and take anything from a big Octo, to an AS-350 Astar or 206 to carry it. Dunno whats in the hobbiest market with this stuff. It's what we fly at work

Yep, good point. Pretty much never!! And if i am, its only cause im showing off the rate the thing climbs in manual (which is like a damn rocket!!!) but soon as im about to lose sight/orientation i flick the switch straight back to ATTI or GPS whichever my panicking fingers get to first!! LOL

Curious on why my naza drifts forward constantly. Not sure if the ICU needs calibration or if I need to push the battery way back but the quad always wants to drift forward and drift a little side to side (I can live with that).
