Avoidance not working, Copter does not stop

Hi All,

i’ll make it short.

I have a quadcopter fitted with an Orange Cube.
I have set up several TFmini S on I2C (i can see them on Proximity tab).
I have set up my RNGFND, PRX, AVOID parameters so that my Copter stops (not slide) and keeps a distance of 6m from obstacles (i actually tried with 2m, 3m , 4m but same result).

Copter acts as if it is detecting the obstacle (i see it leaning to the opposite side as if it wanted to stop). However if i keep my pitch/roll command it still goes towards the obstacle and never stops.

below are my parameters possibly related to Obstacle Avoidance. Any hint why is that happening and how to solve it ?

extra issue: i tried setting up 9 TFmini S to cover all the 8 quadrants + downward facing
*It is not able to detect them all together. I always get a few not detected randomly. *
power supply is through a separate BEC with same ground reference as the Cube Orange.
If i randomly remove 2 from the loop all works fine. it seems to me that the Cube Orange is not able to handle the data and is missing some data randomly from those sensors.

Thanks in advance.

have you changed the i2c addresses of the TFmini sensors so they are all unique? it wont work if they are all running the same i2c address as it wont be able to tell the sensors apart.

Yes all done…my Cube Orange sees them correctly. My problem is while in flight. The Copter does not stop at all.

@elia_ray_salem I’ll need to see logs to understand what may be the issue.
