Intel Aero Drone does not stay on

Jump to solution

Hi,

I have had issues with powering up my drone. Due to a damaged power distribution board, I replaced it with a new one while also having a new Intel compute board being installed on the drone. Although the drone starts up now, I have run into the issue that it does not stay on for longer than around 10 seconds.

Thank you,

Steven Sisjayawan

Hi stevens,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in the Intel Aero drone.

 

Please try flashing the compute board OS, FPGA, Bios and Flight controller. Make sure you are using the correct FPGA jam file (aero-rtf.jam). You should be able update the board outside of the drone.

Hi Eliza,

I have managed to flash the compute board OS, FPGA, Bios and flight controller. However, when I try to install Ubuntu 16.04, the monitor just goes to sleep while the drone stays. How long does the ubuntu installation usually take, I have waited for up to 30 minutes.

Thank you,

Steven S

Hello stevens,

 

 

The installation should not exceed 30 minutes. I would recommend to use another USB stick and a fresh downloaded Ubuntu 16.04 image.

 

 

Thank you,
