Issues with Takeoff RB5 full throttle when armed.



  • We've been running into issues with trying to fly the RB5 and it will go 100% throttle as soon as we try to take off and we cannot control it with our DX6e radio transmitter. We calibrated the drone and the transmitter so that it should recognize when the throttle is low but it still does not work. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?

    Note: We have recently updated the firmware to VOXL 2 and the default RB5 firmware worked fine.

    Hi Daniel, can you please clarify "Note: We have recently updated the firmware to VOXL 2 and the default RB5 firmware worked fine."?

    The VOXL 2 platform image will not work properly on RB5 Flight. You need to use specific RB5 Flight software. The VOXL SDK works on both platforms, but there are low-level differences in the system image and specifically PX4 is configured differently between RB5 Flight and VOXL 2.

    See this page for how to load the RB5 Flight platform image https://docs.modalai.com/Qualcomm-Flight-RB5-voxl-sdk-upgrade-guide/
