Soft-Reboot not working



  • Hey,
    my VOXL is behaving strangely in that whenever I initiate a reboot from QGroundControl, regardless of connection type, the whole VOXL Flight just powers off (consumes 0.25A as seen on my power supply), disconnects and all LEDs turn off.
    Weirdly enough the LEDs on two external devices keep blinking.

    Same behaviour with all external devices detached.
    So I have to go and unplug/ replug the Quad every time I change a parameter that requires reboot... Any ideas?
    cheers

    Hi @m4v3r ,

    The 'reboot' command from QGC (should) only reset the STM32 micro processor so that's a bit odd.

    If you have VOXL connected via ADB and issue a reboot command via QGC, do you lose the ADB connection?

    The 'reboot' command does make the QGC connection drop out momentarily normally.

    Hi, yes if it's rebooted in ADB it's the same behavior.
    This particular VOXL did live through several crashes and stuff though (I am a test-pilot mainly afterall ... ;D) so it might just be busted.

    A different one, setup exactly the same, behaves as expected.
    Thanks for the insight though.
