    Hey guys, I'm currently working with a Pixhawk 2.4.8 and I am having some issues with arming the quad before flight. Right now the Pixhawk signals a blinking blue light after arming the safety switch, indicating that there is no GPS lock. If I take the quad outdoors and look into mission planner I can see that I have a GPS lock, however the Pixhawk is still blinking a blue light and won't arm. I feel like this is an easy fix, but I'm still new when it comes to Pixhawks and could use any advice I could get. If you need me to post any pictures or logs just ask and I will.

    Blinking blue LEDs indicate that the PH has no GPS lock and is disarmed. The fact that you have no GPS lock won't prevent it from arming, it should go to solid blue which indicates armed and no fix. The most common cause of inability to arm is improper throttle endpoint adjustments and not calibrating your ESCs
