    Hi

    First post so please go gentle!

    I have had my drone (F550) and naza M V2 for about 2 months now, I am running on a 14sg which i have had for about 2 years. i am from rc helis

    i have always had the 3 way switch SE (top right front) set to GPS, Att. and Failsafe.

    I decided to move the failsafe over to switch SF (top right back), and make switch SE GPS, Att. and Manual.

    I followed the below link from 22:50 on how to set SF to failsafe and overwrite switch SE



    I went thru the set up with the naza connected to my laptop, and all was good. the control switch slider in the naza software all went to the expected positions according to switch positions. And sure enough, failsafe switch (SF) overwrote everything and went to failsafe, when SF was pushed the other way to off, the naza went back to what ever mode switch SE was set to. A, E, T, R sliders all move with their corresponding sticks.

    Now, the issue. When flying, i can use SE to toggle the different flight modes. All good. When i switch SF, the drone goes into safe mode and begins to come back! Now during this time, if i switch falsafe off, and for example SE is in GPS, the LED changes back to green (single flash). It starts to hold position. Now no matter where the sticks are, the drone just hovers with a single flashing LED. like its not getting the instruction from my tx. If i switch to ATT and back to GPS, it begins to respond to stick inputs. It does it every time.

    It has only done this since moving the failsafe to SF. but as mentioned, thru out the checks with it hooked up the the computer, the software confirms its receiving instruction all the time.

    I am using a brand new r7008sb receiver, connected via sbus. i use the same receiver on both my 450L and 600L helis. no issues. Switch SE on the helis is flight mode, normal idle up 1 and idle up 2, nd switch SF is throttle hold. i am not seeing any of these issues with my helis. so i am really rulling out the tx and rx as issues here. is it a bug with the naza onboard software?

    Has anyone else have this?

    Just one more thing, i have some strobe lights onboard. they are controlled direct from the receiver. during this issue, the strobes are still responding to my tx, as is the flight mode switch SE. so i guess the rx is receiving a signal.

    Might be worth posting in "other multi- rotor" section, failing that it's RC Group for specialised stuff like this
