Thread: GPS Fix Lost

  1. #1

    GPS Fix Lost

    I have 3 Vectors and have never seen this error message before. I flew four short flights with this new wing last fall and just flew it again a couple of days ago and the sats would count up to 8 or 10 and then every once in a while drop to 0 and count back up again. After about 12 minutes of flying this stopped and the sat count went higher and held. I haven't made any changes to the plane other than osd changes. What are possible causes of this? I forgot to mention that it was updated last fall as well. Thanks.

    What frequency are you flying? I've dropped down from 1280 to 1080 a few times and that happens every time - along with the compass going nuts. Just a thought...

    I'm 2.4 on all my planes. Separation is a good 2ft and using 2510 freq.

    Any answers or more issues with this or was it a one-off and stopped happening?

    Are you using any new components that might emit anything on the GPS frequencies (1575MhZ and 1227Mhz) for example i put a Basecam board on one of my quads that wiped out most of the GPS reception.

    I should have reported back. Before the next flight, I made some changes to my osd display and flew again with no problems at all. I don't think I fixed anything other than just the effect of doing a reset. No I haven't made any changes to craft since I built it.
