Motors are buzzing
Hi ModalAI Team,
Sorry if this was already answered somewhere. I searched a solution in the forum but couldn't find any topics. So, I wanted to create a new one.
After working on VOXL m500 for some minutes, all the motors start buzzing like a beacon and rotating back and forth alike step motor. I don't know why this happens and how I can stop this issue.
Currently, I take off/on the LiPo battery to stop buzzing. or when connected the QCS, I reboot.
Is the sound telling me something?
How can I fix that?
thank you in advance!
Hi @Voxlady ,
You are talking about the audible beep/sound correct?
If this is the case, it's a bit of a "feature" with PX4, namely telling you that you have been on battery power for some time and haven't armed yet (at least this is what I think it means).
If you are doing benchtop development and want to disable the beeping, you can change the
SYS_AUTOSTARTparameter through QGC to
0. This disables the output (and also the airframe type so you can't fly).
The beeping sound is actually generated by the motors (which I think is cool, but annoying for sure!)
Hi @modaltb ,
Thank you for your message. Yes, it was the case and I am doing a benchtop development. After changing to 0, they don't beep anymore. So, I can work in peace. :))
