Yuneec Typhoon H "Issue with acquiring GPS, IPS mode will not enable.

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I am looking for other pilots that have the Yuneec Typhoon H, (NOT the Plus or Pro)

My issue is after I have done the firmware update for the ST16 Controller and the Typhoon H.  My H will not take off or even start the blade rotation, it shows on the top right that I have linked to 18 GPS sats and on the left, I have linked with up with 16 and under that is shows that the H is trying to Aquire. 

Now I have watched several videos on how to update the H from Yuneec and still have the issue.

I have also tried to put the Typhoon H into IPS mode and it does not enable!

I have opened a ticket with Yuneec to help me with the issue but because of business hours, I won't know anything till Monday.

 

I am curious if any others have encountered the same issues and what you have done to fix the problem.

 

PLEASE HELP!!!!

Good day to all!
I think I found a solution to the problem "acquiring satellites".
The point is a small rechargeable battery on the unit GPS. The battery should have a voltage of 3 volts. However, after a long break in flights, I had a battery voltage of only 1.6 volts. After a long non-use of the drone, she discharges below the level at which normal operation of the unit is possible. As a result, satellites are not registered. And the constant message is "acquiring satellites".
I draw attention to two points. First, you need to solder a new battery carefully, because the board is very delicate.
Second, after re-soldering the battery, orient the board GPS correctly when installing it in the drone. There is an arrow on the board, it should look forward, towards the front of the drone.
I made a mistake during the assembly, and deployed the board 90 degrees, based on the convenience of the location of the cable from it. The result was the crash of the drone, even despite the fact that I calibrated the compass as expected. I was lucky that the drone crashed into the bush, and the damage was minimal.
All successful flights!
