Ready to fly drone first flight crash

After setting up the drone and calibrating it using the QGroundControl application, I took the drone into a large room to have the first flight. I first flew it using the controller and the drone behaved correctly. After that I used the QGroundControl application to connect to the drone and used the 'Takeoff' option (as shown in the image below). The drone took off, then it started leaning back and flying diagonally, then it just shoot off and crashed into the ceiling. Could you give me any hints as of what might have caused the drone to suddenly fly out into the ceiling?

Hello George,

 

 

Thank you for your interest in our Intel products.

 

 

Please send us the flight logs for further investigation.

Hi Octavian.

Unfortunately, when connecting to the drone via QGroundControl, using a USB connection, there are no logs displayed when I click the refresh button. Is there a way of accessing them directly on the drone, in it's file system?

Thank you.

Hi GeorgeStoian,

 

 

The takeoff function in QGroundControl requires GPS in order to function correctly. Using the Aero RTF Drone indoors is not recommended. Even if there is a GPS signal present, it may not be accurate due GPS shadowing by the building.

 

 

You can find additional information about the Takeoff Flight Mode at the following link:

Please take a look at the Aero documentation regarding indoor flights:
