I have a problem where after take-off my quad loses global and local positioning and descends back to the ground. I consistently got this problem until one time before the battery died the drone cooperated for ~50sec and then it landed with a low battery fail safe.
This made me think that the power board/current is somehow affecting the flight controller or gps?
I moved the GPS ~2in higher and placed a copper tape barrier between the power board and the flight controller. The GPS jamming dropped significantly but I still have the same problem.
Here is the log of a typical failed flight, with the copper barrier.
And this is the log of the one and only successful flight until the battery died.
- Flight Controller: Pixracer R15 over wifi ESP8266
- GPS: taoglas mRo
I’m really out of my depth being a software developer and would really appreciate someone with experience to have a look at my logs
