    HALP!!!

    I was flying my 450 quad today when I noticed that I had ZERO satellites after a minute or 2 of flying time and the quad went manual on me. Scared the crap outta me! All of a sudden it went crazy on me going where it wanted to go and then, the sats were back and all was good. Dam, it happened a second and a third time during the same 3-minute flight. I landed the quad safely.
    Anybody know what's going on with my Minix? [​IMG]

    Here is the log from the blackbox if that will help.

    I just checked today with my continuity checker that pins 1 & 2 check ok but pins 3 & 4 are different. On one end Pin 3 goes to pin 4 and the other end pin 4 goes to pin 3. Is this normal? See photo below.

    Check your cable connection to your GPS unit. This same thing happened to me, suddenly zero satellites. On inspection the GPS cable was loose.
