Hi everyone, as the title said, I had a in flight Pixhawk reboot, resulting in a forced landing… sort off.
I have CUAV Pixhack v3, external mag and airspeed sensor, mounted in a tri motor Vtol.
I had already done about 5 short testing flights on this without incidents, until today when the midair reboot happened.
I was lucky enough to have the plane rather close when I noticed the motors stopping in FBWA mode. Not knowing what happened, I switched to Qstab to save it, since it was about 5m high. It switched modes and the motors started, allowing me to bleed off speed and to get it closer to the ground. This did not lasted long, at about 2m high the motors stopped again and I heard on the telemetry “Throttle Disarmed”. Of course it plunged nose down but it’s not too bad, just the tilt servo mounts and a prop broke.
Checking the logs I see the log stopped and than another one started getting the data from the quick descent.
So, let me attach the logs, maybe someone have a better idea about why this happened.
