Sunday wasn't the best of days

So just a couple of questions based on what I have seen in my logs for my hexa.
I see these messages

So teh first message I don’t understand.
09:00:35 Mode change failed: POSHOLD requires position
Its clear from the log that at the point where this error is thrown there are 13 satellites…while not the total I would normally get…There is enough that it should know where it is.

The second set of messages that I don’t understand.
So of course this is obviously reporting incorrectly…I didn’t land with the gear up…so whats wrong here. Perhaps I have some config issue that I don’t know about.
|09:01:30|LandingGear: RETRACT|
|09:01:37|LandingGear: DEPLOY|
|09:02:15|LandingGear: RETRACT|
I notice that in my second flight I get these messages.
|09:07:50|LandingGear: DEPLOY|
|09:08:00|LandingGear: RETRACT|
|09:08:05|LandingGear: DEPLOY|
|09:08:15|LandingGear: RETRACT|
So clearly its reporting the opposite to whats actually taking place. I wonder if the gear connections are reversed.

Lastly. Why would I be doing a prearm check if I am in the air with my gear retracted.
|09:02:49|PreArm: EKF2 Roll/Pitch inconsistent by 75 deg|

Number of sats is not necessarily a good indicator of 3D fix - I use HDOP <1.0 although there’s almost no one parameter to look at.
I always have:
…and then you cant arm and take off in any mode until there’s a 3D Fix. Check the altitude and radius settings to suit yourself.

Landing gear will just be a case of working through the Servo settings and Landing Gear settings. Maybe just SERVOx_REVERSED,1 will fix it.
Check you Landing Gear RC input channel (CHx_OPT,29) goes above 1800 pwm for LG deployed, then set the Servo settings to suit physical deployment.

These are simply indicators for your landing gear retracting and deploying automatically when crossing between LGR_RETRACT_ALT and LGR_DEPLOY_ALT

So this isn’t recording when I tell the gear to retract or deploy it’s recording when the FC tell it.
Ok interesting.

Thank you

you shall see those when manual deploy or retract as well

Ok well I am going to test it this week. My gut is telling me something is wrong and it’s usually right. We shall see.
