strange drift on takeoff after changed arming method
« on: October 09, 2016, 05:21:44 pm »
I recently changed my arming method to a switch on the transmitter.

Armed Timout is set to 0
Arming Sequenze Time is set to 0
Disarming Sequenze time is set to 0

On takeoff there is a huge drift to the right side , wich was never there before when i armed with the stick

Now i figured out that the blue led on the cc3d is flahing very fast for the first 10 seconds when the battery is conected.
Takeoff while the led is flashing lead to a massive drift...
Waiting for the led till it is only fading on and off solves the problem


So i turned of zero gyro while arming and it channged nothing....
I thought it skips the zeoring of the gyros and it could takoff faster...

Is there a way to skip this 10 second flashing time so you are able to takoff without the massive drift ?

With my old arming method and the arming sequenze time i was probably to solw to create this effect....

Exactly, the fast blinking is Gyro init. This sequence is mandatory, at least using 15.09.
If you skip that or do not wait you get a drunk sailor.

ok thank you for the fast reply.

So with "zero gyros while arming" disabled I am not allowed to move the quad for 10 seconds when i plug in the battery....
But when I arm it, I don't have to wait for it and can takeoff instantly.
