Hi, today I ran three flights on my quadplane:
- Flew the aircraft with QHOVER and FBWA successfully.
- Autonomous mission #1: Got a EKF Yaw Reset -1.00 message and the aircraft yawed about 90 degrees after takeoff. Had to land in QSTABILIZE.
- Autonomous mission #2 after recalibrating the compass: Aircraft began to exhibit "toilet bowl " behavior aka yawing clockwise even after switching to QSTABILIZE with 100% throttle, and almost crashed.
The aircraft seemed to work perfectly fine on the first manual flight, but began to show yaw-related problems afterwards during the AUTO flights. An EKF yaw reset of -1.00 is about 60 degrees and that seems quite extreme. In a previous case where a 0.43 EKF yaw reset occurred and I had to take over and land, a compass recalibration solved the problem. I do find that I have to keep re-calibrating the compass, but the calibration procedure succeeds every time on the Default level of offset acceptance on MP. I currently am using a Pixhawk 2.1/Cube with a Here GPS, but the Here GPS compass is disabled for now,
Does anyone face similar problems, or know how to solve this? Any help would be appreciated.
Here are the logs (Flights 1 and 2 are in log 01, Flight 3 is in log 02): https://drive.google.com/open?id=1OJ0bYf8AN1orfB8xQWZf1IWzL5_3z19W
