I see a lot of boards that state their phantoms just die in the middle of the sky. Mine did today. The battery was absolutely still locked into the drone. I am hoping some can explain something I found after checking why my phantom 4 pro just shut off about 12 feet off the ground. The log showed nothing at all.
But, I just discovered something very interesting.
I wanted to make sure I didnt do something stupid like a CSC maneuver.
While I was testing this, a few things popped up.
you have the ability to stop the motors in the air, correct?
CSC is both sticks pulled to the inner right and left at the same time.
there are 2 settings to stop the motors according to the app.
- “dont stop motors in mid air”
- “CSC” mode, which according to the app, the left stick pulled down to the inside right corner, and the RTH button held down at the same time.
Those are the methods to stop the motors.
No matter what setting I have it on, the motors will shut off with “ONLY” the left stick pulled to the bottom inside right.
Thats gotta be something wrong, right?
and it shuts down pretty quick too.
about 2 seconds.
So, if i am decending and turning to the left at the same time, my motors will shut off mid air.
Has anyone else encountered this?
