Failsafe enabled: no local position - after takeoff

Hello,

Aero information:

BIOS: Aero-01.00.13

OS: Poky Aero 1.6.1 (pyro)

Airmap: 1.8

FPGA: 0xc2

AeroFC firmware: 1.6.5

I took my Aero out to fly its maiden voyage and it unfortunately resulted in multiple crashes. I would ARM it via QGoundControl and execute the Takeoff command from the icon. The drone would takeoff successfully, but once it reached about a height of about 15 feet it would then begin to fly towards the ground at an angle. I'm looking at a flight log at the time of the last crash and the log message that shows up is:

WARNING - [commander] Failsafe enabled: no local position

Is the support team aware of this behavior when the Aero takes off? I was able to reproduce this about 3 to 4 times while I was out in the field.

Hello Adrian,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero drone.

 

 

If possible, can you please provide us with the log file or the output of the log file?

 

Also, please tell us in what conditions have you attempted to fly the drone, like the environment of the location, weather conditions , etc.

 

 

Regards,

I've attached one of the flight controller logs of the crash. As far as the weather conditions, it was a clear sunny day, and the location is a wide open field.

Hello Adrian,

 

 

Thank you for your patience.

 

 

The fail safe might be an intended behavior of the drone.

 

You can look through the documentations of the PX4 (https://pixhawk.org/users/rc_failsafe https://pixhawk.org/users/rc_failsafe) and QGroundControl (https://docs.qgroundcontrol.com/en/SetupView/Safety.html https://docs.qgroundcontrol.com/en/SetupView/Safety.html) for more information and ways to modify.

 

It would be at your own discretion and we recommend not going beyond the recommended parameters.

 

 

Regards,

 

Octavian
