TBS Disco + DJI Naza V2 - Red Yellow light error


Hello

I have just recovered my tbs after a little fall in the forest, tried to fly it today and after takeoff it started blinking red yellow all the time.

I just let it blink and it flies just like atti mode.

If i land i stops and blinks green again, then i takeoff it hovers nice a few secs then starts blink again.. if i just ignore it it casually blinks green sometimes.

I have tried calibrating it each time it starts. Done the "deep" calibration of the "IMU".

Anyone know what it might be? The difference since i crashed done to the craft is that i've put the FPV TX flat instead on the top plate. And the GPS also flat instead of on the stick. (The stick dosent fit in my new carry case)

I mounted the gps on the pole again.. jackpot.. :-/

Can this be the case??

I had it into the servoconnectors on the back there the RX for remote is.. I thought RX / RX did not interfere with eachother? battery was under it

Ok, now its f**ked. Took 5 minutes to get fix. When i get fix it flew up. Driftet around and around. (not on pole)..

I really dont want that frcking pole.. Is it a must? :-/

Is there any way to test if the gps is dead after that crash?

Have you checked the Naza manual? It explains in detail what the light error codes mean.

im not an expert but if it (the gps) was mounted on the mounting stick then you mounted it flat on the chassis did you also go into the assisstant and change the location parameters for the gps. since you have to put in -10 for the last gps parameter it might need to be 0 ?

just a thought.

Orange light means your in atti. mode and the red (depending on how many ie 3 blinks) is the satellite signal. No blink is good signal, with blink weak signal.

I have never entered the values of where it installed and it works. I even move it around from time to time with no issues.

Try and keep it away from the frame and VTx antenna.

I know what the light is It was flashing RED and YELLOW when i landed it started blinking green. I calibrated, flew and same thing.

When i mounted it back with the RX above the battery the module got miscalibrated and dident hold position at all.

I moved it to the middle on the left of the TX and its 100% stable now.. :P So if mounting behind keep it atleast 10cm above battery. Works fine. If not keep it away! :P

It is a compass error, it is in the manual. I had this when the GPS puck was too low and gets interference from the magnetic field generated by the motors. Raised the height of the puck above the motors and never had the problem since, over a year ago.
