Yesterday I had an incident that must have been a bird strike. The left front landing leg was folded back
and the underside of the right front prop had some streak marks that look kinda greasy.
Looking at the .DAT file the eventLog stream shows this
147.537 : 10017 [L-FDI][CTRL]: fault on , impact_in_air
147.557 : 10018 [L-RC]craft ctrl failed!!!
147.676 : 10024 [L-FDI][CTRL]: fault off, impact_in_air
148.992 : 10090 [L-FDI]NS(0) GPS(0): fault on , conformity
149.571 : 10119 [L-RC]craft ctrl failed!!!
The M2P was hovering at about 44 meter height when the accelerometer data shows it was hit from below and from the left
The attitude data shows that it pitched up and rolled right
The pitch data shows that it tumbled end over end a few times before righting itself.
Too bad I wasn’t recording the video stream. I was using the DJI Goggles and recall that the when the incident occurred that 1) the gimbal seemed to be stuck pointing at the left prop, 2) erratic hard to control flight, and 3) there was some kind of Gimbal error. The .txt log shows this “Gimbal Roll Reached Movement Limit”. After a few secs it got easier to control but the gimbal was stuck at roughly 70° CW tilt. Finally, the gimbal righted itself as I was flying it back.
