PX4 1.8.0 Drift-away

Hi all,

I was flying my quadrotor to tune gains with PX4 1.8.0, X8R, and FrSky X7 when I had the quad drift suddenly to the right and nearly crash into a wall. I double checked the logs and it looks like it was automatic, as I was commanding the quadrotor to fly to the left.

Log file: https://logs.px4.io/plot_app?log=6afbeee6-11f2-4e7c-b102-22252f43dad9

Other oddities:

  • Pixhawk 2.1 Cube is mounted at Yaw 135
  • Gains are tuned mostly stable - can hold in position mode without too much of an issue, but still encounter the occasional wobble.

I saw some similarities with this post: Px4 1.8.0 random glitches while flying (dangerous!). I haven’t updated the firmware since 1.8.0 came out. Could that be the core of the issue? How do I fix this?

Thanks all,

Hi, elias
Have you solved your problem? I’ve met the same issue today and my drone is nearly crashed!
