Assisted flight mode Hover locked

Post by radijaune » Sun Dec 02, 2018 6:59 am

Hi, recently (Order #2611, Nov 23, 2018) I purchased Flow Deck v2. When I plug it onto the quadcopter (Crazyflie 2.0) the assisted flight mode Hover is locked. The modes unlocked are "Altitude hold" and "Position hold". Is it normal ? Regards.

Hi,

We have had production problem on the Flow 2 and some of them have had bad connections. The problem should be solved by now but maybe you got one of the few bad board.

One reason for the hover mode not appearing could be that the deck is not detected, if you connect with the client you can see in the console tab if the deck is initialized. If it is this will be displayed:

Code: Select all

DECK_INFO: Found 1 deck memory.
DECK_CORE: 1 deck enumerated
ZR2: Z-down sensor [OK]
PMW: Motion chip id: 0x49:0xB6
If it is not please drop us a mail and we will fix it.
