Just received the RTF aero drone, flashed and calibrated everything as per "02 initial setup" from git.
when using PX4 firmware and arming motor from the Remote control, motors start for a second and then electrical blackout ; meaning the drone shutdown, no power anymore. I have to "power on" the drone again by pressing the button on the PDB. So here we are talking about a major electrical issue.
That being said, using PX4 and QGC, with the propellers removed, when I click on the takeoff button and bypassing arming, motors starts and stay running... Bypassing arming seem's to let the motor starting, so no defect on the motors themselves.
However, when clicking on the landing button, blackout again, drone shutdown completely.
Shall I consider to have been received a defective unit/drone ?
BIOS_VERSION = Aero-01.00.16 OS_VERSION = Poky Aero (Intel Aero Linux Distro) 1.6.2 (pyro) AIRMAP_VERSION = 1.8 FPGA_VERSION = 0xc2 AeroFC firmware version = 1.6.5
Side notes :
I do not have batteries and wonder if it make sense to buy them since the drone sounds inoperative.
What do to next ? from Your standpoint, which parts of the drone can lead to such failure ? PDB ? ESC ? Motors ? Software ? need help and advices from Intel. rgds
