It appears from the video that the drone thought it was going home even though i had cancelled RTH when it flew off at high speed. i had tested RTH and it worked before this flight, also the GPS co-ordinates of the crash site were correct. drone has 2.3v firmware and calibrated correctly
It is now apparent why the Pro is no longer on the Swellpro website, its a defective drone

I tried ATTI GPS and RTH, i eventually got minor control ATTI but it was determined to crash, Splashdrone have offered to upgrade the electronics to an Auto(just confirming this) but want me to pay extra. I was looking at DJI Flight controllers but what one would be compatable?
i payed $180 for new controller, gps puck, body, ccw motor, 1 set of props and some gear. were $45 was shipping. did the rebuild my self and struggled as a mother%#%%$ but got it working went from AUTO to AUTO plus FYI.
bought it from GoNitroHobbies in New Jersey i think, have bought heaps of stuff from them. placement was easy just did alot of research online, the only thing i stuffed up was the motors M1 M2 M3 M4 on the Naza where different to M1 M2 M3 M4 on the splashdrone. The other mod im doing right now is cutting the large grey plugs and replacing them with plugs from an old Phantom that went for a swim. Ive got the SD led to flash with the Naza but im testing to see if i am getting reduced flight times...
why a new RX, is it that much different from the one that is stock? i was under the impression that the problem of FPV was the shell? i think you might be the person who had the most unlucky experience with the SD.. also wondering why you did not go with the lightbridge 2 and GO why you were at it, there is most lightly a crashed drone somewhere you can use as parts ( ebay or craigslist)
just today got it flying after installing Naza M v2 and a futaba rx, flies just like my phantom awesome...i even got the two leds to flash naza style
Hi Daryl, old old post I know but flashing leds? I wish to have the same, configured with an adjustable strobe effect for the same reason. Say..........3 second intervals. Which way is back to me plus location at twilight/after sundown would be very useful. I have not done the research for a strobe board as yet. Is the Naza module a complete alternate flight control system to control the Splashdrone or others, via Futaba products? (As apposed to AT9/10 Radiolink), or is it an add-on for utilities for both?

tyuyrt: Hello, I just installed a new GPS with lid - it only works when the lid and cable are dangling down the side of the drone; as soon as I close the lid the lights flash yellow red and green and I cannot take off. I'd appreciate any insights.

chris: marksdrone: just had the same issue with mine. It may be the accelorometer that you need to calibrate first and then do the compass after that.
