I’ve spent quite some time with this thing now, still only indoors, and I’m at the point where I can confidently take off, hover and move around the room, as long as I keep facing the same direction. When I try to yaw, things start getting out of hand, but I’m sure I’ll get there eventually.
Obviously I’m very limited on space in my little semi, but I have a question about what happens when I do inevitably bump into something.
As soon as anything knocks the drone off level flight it seems the motors all go haywire - sounds like they just rev up to the max - and the thing spirals out of control or mashes itself, top-side first, against the wall, without any throttle input from myself. I think I would expect this if I was flying Level or Horizon but as far as I know I’m in Acro. Here’s the modes I have set up in Beta showing my regular flying configuration of the switches.
Yesterday, I picked it up (gingerly) while it was sat idling, tilted it, and I could hear and feel the motors fighting against the movement.
Is this normal, or have I configured it wrong, or is there something more sinister going on? Or is it something that just won’t be an issue once I’m outside the confines of a 15’ square room?
I’ve come really close to buying another FVP just to see if it behaves the same but so far I’ve managed to resist. I mean, I’ve not even started using the goggles on this one yet.
