This is my first drone ever! I have a pixhawk 2.4.8 connected to my laptop via SDR 915 MHz Tx/Rx radios. I am controlling the drone via logitech gamepad. I am able to arm the vehicle, change flight modes, and increase/decrease throttle reliably. However, I am not able to safely turn off the motors (No props are attached yet ). In fact, my disarm command is being denied. So far the only way to get the motors off after arming and spinning them, is to physically run up and unplug the power. I am able to disarm the vehicle using the QGC emergency disarm slider AND the pixhawk safety switch, but they are useless!!! The motors lock into a high speed after disarming which is the opposite of disarming lol.
I do not have a gps attached or any other sensor for the vehicle to determine if it has landed so I do no know why the system wants to deny me safety in regards to simply turning off motors.
Please help. This is the last step before I can take flight!
