I’ve had c14 installed since it was released and had about 10 flights a day without a problem. At first I had gps failure failsafe set to land but I didn’t like the uncontrolled landing so I turned that off. It only happened two times and landed soft enough to not cause a problem. Now I think I might have had the same issue but instead of landing, it sort of flew into the ground. I was in PosHold and it just took off down at about a 45° angle from about 10 meters off the ground. Luckily I had some tall grass to soften the impact but it did break off my 3dr GPS mask pole from the base and also made my Mad Mushroom 1.2 antenna look a little more mad
Would this be normal behavior if GPS goes astray and failsafe is NOT to set to auto land? If that is the case then I prefer it to land but that was not working good either because it was a forced landing even though I should have been able to steer it. In those prior cases with it set to land, I would try to switch out and back to stable mode but it either happened to fast or never allowed me to regain the control.
Does a GPS failure have to be a problem if you are just in stable mode? I fly FPV so even if I lose GPS for a short time, it’s not a problem as long as I’m not in a GPS dependent flight mode. Is stable mode depended on GPS? Is Acro?
Here is the flash log and drone share link of the flight.
Also how can I get my logs to date correctly?? They always show Dec 31, 1969
Now I’m very curious what caused this crash. Is there a way to see in the logs if it was a mechanical error? Also I noticed the data flash log seems to finish while it’s still in the air. Can you see from the log that it dove into the ground at a 45° angle? It happened just some seconds after the last POS HOLD.
I noticed stable mode doesn’t depend on GPS. Now I’m wondering why it landed twice last week when I had GPS failsafe set to land. I’m sure I was in stable mode because it’s what I normally fly in but from what I remember, it just landed on it’s own and I couldn’t retake control. Since I turned off the GPS failsafe, it never happened again.
