I looked on this forum and I didn’t see anybody with the same issue.
My APM copter flies great in ALT HOLD, STABILIZE, SIMPLE, etc. However, when I turn on LOITER, it will sit for about 1 or 2 seconds making minor corrections, and then flies away like it’s getting paid to do so! It doesn’t always go in the same direction…usually random. At this point I have to take it out of LOITER mode because it won’t really respond to my stick inputs.
I’ve tried two different GPS units: UBLOX NEO 6M, and currently UBLOX LEA-6H with external compass. Everything is calibrated properly. I tested the compass through Mission Planner and the result was well within the acceptable level of electrical interference (<3%).
I let the copter sit outside for about 5 minutes. Got 11 satellites, with HDOP around 1.3 or something like that.
Any input would be greatly appreciated as I’ve already run out of hair to pull from my head!
Thank you in advance.
