Need Help- I can't engage flight mode
I'm not able to activate flight mode on QCG. The error message is saying: Avoidance System not ready.
The Not Ready error message shows GPS is disabled, Gyro 2 is disabled, and Accelerometer 2 is disabled.
Do I need these enabled for flight mode?
If so, how do I enable them?

@Ward-Javoronok could you please elaborate a bit more? What drone/board are you using, system image, flying indoors or outdoors, what have you configured, etc.
Do you have voa (visual obstacle avoidance) enabled?
If you're flying indoors, gps is should be disabled. Which parameters have you loaded in QGC?

Hi @Ward-Javoronok ,
Depending on the drone you're using, you might have to update your parameter files. For instance if you want to fly indoors with vision you could use indoor helpers. If you want to fly outside, you can outdoor helpers.
Take a look a look at these: https://gitlab.com/voxl-public/flight-core-px4/px4-parameters/-/tree/master/helpers/m500
If you don't want avoidance, you'll have to disable cp_dist parameter using a negative number for instance.
Hope this helps.
@RichieRich How do I update the parameter files? I have a VOXL M500 and want to fly it inside. Should I use QGC or some other program?
@Ward-Javoronok Through QGC, see here: https://docs.modalai.com/upload-px4-parameters/
@tom Do you have instructions for setting up flight modes in QGC for the Spectrum DX6e?
What airfame should I use for indoor flying?
I choose the Px4 Vision DevKit Platform Quad-copter.
