Ok, another disconnect topic.
Tonight I had my first “Aircraft Disconnected”
This has left me thinking a lot of “what if’s” and given me a severe confidence issue.
I’ve had my MPP now about a month and have had a number of successful flights with no issues whatsoever and love it.
I’ve been quite sensible and wanted to just learn before taking it away from home. I live on a farm (well, ex farm) surrounded by fields, perfect for flying. So lots of space, in fact enough to go out of sight if I chose to.
Tonight, at 400 ft altitude and about the same distance away from me, my CSU gave me an Aircraft Disconnected message. Oh here we go I thought.
Obviously still in sight I tested the controls and reduced altitude straight away. Great at least I’m still in control.
I landed, checked cable connections, turned everything off then restarted all lights were green, took it for another flight and everything seemed to be fine.
I did notice when turning the CSU on that I got an “Abnormal” message under firmware which then changed to normal.
One other thing thats worth mentioning is the weather, it was pissing it down!! no, only joking. The evening was warm, humid and potential of a storm although no wind at all. I’m thinking electrical activity maybe?
I know many will say USB C, I will change this straight away as I bought five 8" braided cables.
This has left me feeling a touch deflated and some reassurance and a cuddle would be nice.
