Hoping someone can give me some insight into this:

Today I flew my F550 with Naza M and GPS for the second time. Yesterday was a quick text to check all controls and find it would hover as advertised. Today I decided to go more in depth and test the failsafe feature.

With everything setup with the Naza assistant, I flew approximately 200 feet away from me in GPS mode, and hovered about 10 feet above ground. Flipped the gear switch which triggers the failsafe and it climbed to about 60 feet and started returning to home point. When it arrived at the home point and was still at 60 feet, I decided to come out of failsafe, flipped the failsafe off, and it still had command of the F550 as if in failsafe. It did the auto land and motor shutoff, which was great, but why would it not come out of failsafe?

Thanks for any ideas or help!

Go back to the assistant software and verify that flipping the switches exactly as you described returns the NAZA to a non-fail safe operating mode. It is possible, that depending on how you setup your TX, that you entered fail safe because the initial conditions were correct, but you may have not left fail safe based on some other input from your TX.

If that doesn't reveal anything, then it's possible that you had auto-land enabled for low battery voltage. If that happened, then you wouldn't have been able to bail out of that.

Hope that helps steer you in the right direction.

you have to switch your mode switch from the mode your in to another mode after you switch it out of failsafe and then you will have control again. so if you were in gps mode when you initiated failsafe after you turn failsafe off again you have to switch to atti mode or manual to get back control. i dont think its the same if your already in manual mode when failsafe is initiated, but im not 100% sure.

Looked at that last night! Switches in and out of failsafe just fine with the Naza Assistant software. By the way the radio is a DX8 and I'm using a AR8000 with satalite, if that helps.

I will give this a try on the next timeout. I just re-read the Naza Manual, and on page 21 it does say;

"Notices: When switch to Manual Mode or Atti. Mode, MC will disengage enhanced failed-safe mode, you can re-gain control of multi-rotor."

Thanks for help!
