ISSUE: CAL and/or motor arming gesture not recognised

Date

6 April 2017

Applies to

all templates

Description

Even after calibrating the sticks, it's not possible to enter CAL mode and/or arm the motor using the stick gestures.

Cause

The cause is a fault affecting with a small proportion of gimbals with Hall effect sensors: the end point value may not reach 100 at certain points in its travel. This means that logical switches which use the 'a~x' operator with x = +/-100 may fail to detect the end point condition. Gimbal operation can be checked using Analog Inputs menu (Taranis) or Stats menu (Horus).

Solution

A workaround involves relaxing the stick gesture tolerances for CAL and motor arming:

LOGICAL SWITCHES

================

L1 ( Ail < -90 ) AND L2
L2 ( Ele < -90 ) AND SH↓
L3 Sticky(L1, L4)
L4 SH↓ AND L3
L5 CH17 < 100
L6 ( Ail > 90 ) AND !FM2
L7 ( Ele < -90 ) AND L6

The workaround is incorporated in all current templates.
