after calibrating compass, gyro and accelerometer, i tired ‘Level Horizon’ but the only message i get is:
Start the individual calibration steps by clicking one of the buttons to the left.
[cal] calibration started: 2 level
attitude estimator not running - check system boo
[cal] calibration failed: level
can someone help point me to the solution?
another point: Airspeed is also red, but i have no airspeed sensor. is there a way to disable ‘airspeed?’
using pixRacer, dev-master and qGroundControl (daily build)
There is a parameter circuit breaker for airspeed sensor. Search for airspeed in parameters.
THX. And how can i solve this attitude thing?
@alexf Sounds like your sensors are broken. What kind of hardware are you running?
guess what, the cheap clones from china of pixRacer. Is there anything i can do with this clones or is this useless crap?
is there a possibility to check the hardware for functionality?
is there a way how i can verify this?
@alexf Any luck figuring this out? I am having the same problem with my 3DR Pixhawk. It is a genuine Pixhawk and I have not done anything to it except flash it with QGroundControl, so the hardware should be fine.
I’ve added a software workaround for Pixracer. @jmcwil If this happens on Pixhawk it suggests it has a hardware issue.
@LorenzMeier @alexf I just got the same issue on the Pixhawk (from an Iris)
It came from updating the software from PX4 1.5.5 to PX4 1.6.5.
I tried to reset all params, recalibrate, … nothing changes.
The “solution” I found is to fully reset the copter:
- Send the APM Firmware
- Send the PX4 Firmware
It seems that the problem could come from the EKF_AID_MASK, where I checked the Vision Position Fusion checkbox without using the Vision.
Have the same problem with CUAV Pixhack v3 . “Attitude estimator not running - check system boo” in Level Horizon.
Also accel calibration fails. Every step goes right, but in the end a big log text appears, and the last string - calibration fail.
Is there any information about this flight controller setup?
For me it´s the same with OmnibusF4SD it seems that the whole ekf2 estimator group is completely missing. Using it with a generic quadcopter and LPE estimator the callibration works perfectly except the baro altitude estimation (but all sensors display proper values in nsh sensors status).
I´m trying to build very small tailsitter vtols (two motors two servos) sub 80g
attitude_estimator_q start did it partially only for generic flying wing. After various tries it boots with caipiroshca duo tailsitter and ekf2 estimator … expect baro - and it is has to be typed in nearly after each boot to keep att estimator running
hi i have the same problem.I dont have airspeed sensor,how did you solve it?thanks
I tried the steps explained by @AlexisTM, basically flashing APM and then PX4 Firmware. That solved several issues for me, namely
- Level Horizon “calibration failed: level”
- Detected 0 radio channels. To operate PX4, you need at least 5 channels
- PREFLIGHT FAIL MAG #0 SELFTEST FAILED
So what I did was, following the Intel Aero initial setup instructions:
sudo aerofc-update.sh arducopter-aerofc-v1.px4
Wait some minutes for the firmware to be flashed, and then:
sudo aerofc-update.sh nuttx-aerofc-v1-default.px4
Note: I had to add
sudo, otherwise it would not work. After this my drone, an Intel Aero RTF, worked correctly.
Hi I had the same issues but I resolved it by setting the multicopter estimator group.
on GGC go to vehicle setup, then parameters then search for
SYS_MC_EST_GROUP then change the parameter to
Local_position_estimator, attitude_estimator_q (unsupported)
