Ken Jancef replied to Nick Moody's discussion Pixhawk beeping after arming in the group PIXHAWK
"I have an X5C-1, and try to fly it as much as I can. I guess with this build I'm just a little over-cautious because I actually built it, it wasn't store-bought or ready to fly, if that makes sense. I didn't want to see that hard work…"

"Yep, that's true, forgot about that. I can always take off in Stabilize, then switch over to Alt Hold after in the air. Forgot about the dead band..."

"Well... for me, since all I'm used to is a Phantom, I wanted this build to be somewhat like that. I'm not a good enough pilot yet to have full manual control. I did a flight with this build and could barely control it. And being it was 3D…"

Ken Jancef replied to Nick Moody's discussion Pixhawk beeping after arming in the group PIXHAWK
"So I have my Taranis changing flight modes with a 3-position toggle switch. Right now it is set to Stabilize, Loiter, RTL. Would it be better to change Stabilize to Alt Hold? For the build that my Pixhawk is in, I was hoping to, for now, have it…"

"If you don't mind me asking... why do you not recommend taking off in a GPS flight mode? I am not disagreeing, I just want to know why/why not. Still learning...."

Ken Jancef replied to Chris Anderson's discussion Help with 3DR power module not staying selected in mission planner
"Even though this is an old post, I am having the same issue. I am using MP 1.3.35, and my Pixhawk just got updated to 3.3. When I select the 3DR power module, then click on another screen, the go back, it reverts back to "Other". Did you…"

"Hightechhobbie, I'm still learning the Pixhawk, but was thinking... I believe that those logs are saved to the SD card, correct? If so, do you think there's an issue with the SD card? Is it in all the way? Maybe try taking it out and…"

"I had the same issue about a month ago, or at least I think it's the same issue. I'm indoors though.. and I fire up my quad/Pixhawk, and the light blinks yellow. I try to arm it, but I get the two-tone "sorry, can't arm"…"

"Cory, I'm sorta new to the Pixhawk myself. If you connect it to Mission Planner, does it seem to function properly? I assume since you swapped birds you did a compass/GPS calibration? Can you reset the Pixhawk to defaults and start over?"

"For me it was the limits setting for my throttle stick on the Turnigy 9x. Increasing to 120% fixed it. But now that I have a Taranis, I left the throttle settings at default and it worked right away."
