    hi all. i'm a newbie. i was flying today and tried to have it go into course lock and home lock and it didn't work? when i brought it home and connected to my pc it responded well switching between the two in the vision assistant. any ideas on why it was? maybe not a good calibration or home gps location? it's gotta be user error somehow.

    Which problem do you have?

    1. resetting HL and CL?
    viewtopic.php?f=27&t=22675
    I assume you're on firmware 3.06.
    Previous firmwares were fine.

    2. HL and CL doesn't operate in flight?
    Check the phantom assistant and see if NAZA is on and the IOC box is checked.

    hl and cl was not working in flight......
    yep i'm in naza....not phantom
    the ioc box is ticked
    and when i change the position of the switch it operates as expected
    i'm puzzled because it was working the other day.
    also it seemed to be come home when i would pull the right switch to failsafe

    What did it do, not do?
    What did the LED indicators show?
    Did you try in Atti or GPS Atti mode?

    so HL and CL works just fine on the ground, but not in flight... do a test on the ground with motors started and before flight... then take it up 5 feet, and do another test... then lower it to ground and do another test... seems odd that it would work fine on the ground and not when in flight...

    Read the manual to find out how they work !!!!!
    There's tons of videos on it.

    Home lock on ground? What happens when HL turns on ground?

    Please stop.

    Obviously there is a communication issue or misspeak, HL and CL do nothing on the ground.

    The OP is likely referring to manually (re)setting them after take-off.

    It's not the OP who brought that up. I think srandall25 mixes this topic here with another one that is discussing resetting of the Home point and Course orientation while in flight.
