Your tests matches what I have experienced when running LPS and flow together: there is something that is sometime happening that makes the Crazyflie just 'snap' and crash. I suspect this comes from the EKF getting confused with conflicting information from both the flow and the LPS but I cannot be sure of it.

One thing to try could be to increase the standard deviation of the flow sensor (https://github.com/bitcraze/crazyflie-f ... .c#L94-L95) and/or of the down-facing ranging sensor (https://github.com/bitcraze/crazyflie-f ... .c#L47-L50). If the problem comes from conflicting data between LPS and Flow, increasing the flow standard deviation should help.

Thanks Arnaud.

I realized several tests.

Results:
Increase standard deviation from 0.25 to 0.35 and 0.7: The problem maintain.

I have different hardware version of drones 2.0 and 2.1.
With drones 2.0 the issues are not critical. For drone 2.1 are very criticil (4 flights i have 3 crash).

I will modifies some things on the code. When I will have a good results I will share.

I had problems using LPS and zranger and flowdeck (flow disabled) with TDOA2, have you tried TDOA3?

I also had problems connecting z ranger ver2 because the deck didn't assemble properly.
