Motor stops on LOITER

Fortunately found this out on a bench test…
When I switch mode from STABILISE to LOITER the motor stops ?
It’s a Flying Wing, MP v1.3.72, FW v4.0.5.255
I have GPS 2D fix, 12sats HDOP 1.12.
Battery with cells at 3.7v LiIon

I’ve checked all I can think of, any ideas please?

Thank you

It realized it was on the bench and not flying so it switched of the motor.

Well thank you, so I need have no worries about launching it :slightly_smiling_face:
Does it look for altitude from launchpoint, accel movement or air speed?

Thanks for the quick reply

It needs to be moving about and and have some air speed.

Should be fine to go ahead and launch, the only major gotcha in plane is to double check the surfaces are correcting in the right direction and the sticks are also in the correct direction.

Yep, I’ve done this bit, I get confused at my age HAHA so I have this crib sheet… :innocent:

TX Stick Test

roll stick right - right evelon goes UP
roll stick left - left evelon goes UP
pitch stick up - both evelons go down
pitch stick down - both evelons go up

Auto-stabilise (angle mode)

wing rolls right - left evelon goes up
- right evelon goes down
wing rolls left - left evelon goes down
- right evelon goes up
wing climbs - both evelons go down
wing dives - both evelons go up

Thanks agan, HAGD
