Motors Shutdown When Applying Pitch or Roll

I have installed a new Pixhawk in my system. In my ground testing I notice that when I apply full pitch or roll the motors shutdown. Is this normal if not what is the solution?

This is probably crash detection which occurs when:

  1. the vehicle is armed
  2. the vehicle is not landed (as far as it can tell)
  3. the current flight mode is not ACRO or FLIP
  4. the vehicle is not accelerating by more than 3m/s/s
  5. the actual lean angle has diverged from the desired lean angle (perhaps input by the pilot) by more than 30 degrees
