1 "FC not compatible "

Cause: The Flight Control software is not compatible to the software version of the NaviControl.

Solution:

  • Software-Update

2 "MK3Mag not compatible "

Cause: The software of the MK3MAG is not compatible with the software version of the NaviControl.

Solution:

  • Software-Update

3 "no FC communication "

Cause: The NaviControl has no communication with the Flight Control

Solution:

  • Check the resistance (tr. note: with a multimeter) of connections (6-pins AND 10-pins flat cables) and the solder points on the pads

4 "no MK3Mag communication "

Cause: The NaviControl has no communication with the MK3Mag

Solution:

  • Test the connection
  • The green LED on the MK3MAG must be lit or flashing

5 "no GPS communication "

Cause: The NC has no communication to the GPS

Solution:

  • Check connection
  • The green LED on the MKGPS must be on or flashing
  • If you use a new MK-GPS-Module (LEA-6S-0-001), the NC-firmware mus be at least V0.26g NC 0.26

6 "bad compass value"

Cause: The compass-value is invalide

Solution:

  • Calibrate the MK3Mag

  • if the Error occures during flight or if the compass was already calibrated: Then the magnet-sensor might have a problem and you should contact HiSystems

7 "RC Signal lost "

Cause: No RC-Signal

Solution:

  • turn on transmitter
  • check channel or binding
  • check receiver setting in the KopterTool

8 "FC spi rx error "

Cause: the NC has noch communication via SPI to the FC

Solution:

  • Check the SPI connection (6-pole and 10-pole ribbon cable) and the pins on FC and NC

9: "ERR: no NC communication"

Cause: The communication between FC and NC was suddenly interrupted

Solution:

  • Check the flat cabled between FC and NC

10 "ERR: FC Nick Gyro"

Cause: the analoque sgyro ensor signal is not in the expected range during calibration (between 150 and 850)

The value is shown in the virtual display in brackets (xx)

Solution:

  • calibrate sensors again
  • check the soldered connections on the Gyro

11 "ERR: FC Roll Gyro"

Cause: the analoque gyro sensor signal is not in the expected range during calibration (between 150 and 850)

The value is shown in the virtual display in brackets (xx)

Solution:

  • calibrate sensors again
  • check the soldered connections on the Gyro

12 "ERR: FC Yaw Gyro"

Cause: the analoque gyro sensor signal is not in the expected range during calibration (between 150 and 850)

The value is shown in the virtual display in brackets (xx)

Solution:

  • calibrate sensors again
  • check the soldered connections on the Gyro

13 "ERR: FC Nick ACC"

Cause: the analoque ACC sensor signal is not in the expected range during calibration (between 150 and 850)

The value is shown in the virtual display in brackets (xx)

Solution:

  • calibrate sensors again
  • check the soldered connections on the sensor

14 "ERR: FC Roll ACC"

Cause: the analoque ACC sensor signal is not in the expected range during calibration (between 150 and 850)

The value is shown in the virtual display in brackets (xx)

Solution:

  • calibrate sensors again
  • check the soldered connections on the sensor

15 "ERR: FC Z-ACC"

Cause: the analoque ACC sensor signal is not in the expected range during calibration (between 150 and 850)

The value is shown in the virtual display in brackets (xx)

Solution:

  • calibrate sensors again
  • check the soldered connections on the sensor

16 "ERR: Pressure sensor"

Cause: the analoque pressure sensor signal is not in the expected range during calibration

The MikroKopter might be in too high altitude above sea level. (more than 1000-1500m)

Solution:

  • check connection to the sensor
  • was the sensor soldered the wrong way?
  • See here: testing the sensor

17 "ERR: FC I2C"

Cause: the I2C communication to the BL-Ctrls is disturbed

Solution:

  • check supply of the BL-Ctrls
  • check I2C-cables (mixed C and D?)
  • check addresses of the BL-Ctrls
  • disconnect single BL-Ctrls to find one defective

18 "ERR: Bl Missing"

Cause: one BL-Ctrl was not found, but it is used in the mixer table

Solution:

  • check supply of the BL-Ctrls
  • check addresses of the BL-Ctrls
  • Check the MixerTable

19 "Mixer Error"

Cause: there are more BL-Ctrls connected than expected

Solution:

  • Check the MixerTable. Maybe a Hexa is selected in a Okto

20 "FC: Carefree Error"

Cause: The function CareFree is used, but the value of the Mk3Mag is invalid

Solution:

  • Check MK3Mag and NC
  • Calibrate compass

21 "ERR: GPS lost"

Cause: The GPS-Signal was lost during flight (below 4 Satelites)

22 "ERR: Magnet Error"

Cause: The magnetic field of the compass-sensor is 15% different to the magentic field during calibration.

Solution:

  • remove magnetic disturbing source (Cables, Buszzer,...)
  • general points to the magnetic disturbtions: here

  • Calibrate compass - use the new method!

See also: MagnetError

23 "Motor restart"

  • One BL-Controller tries to restart the motor
  • motor blocked od defect motor cable

24 "BL Limitation"

  • A BL-Controller is in limitation - either overtemperature or overcurrent

25 "Waypoint range"

  • The aimed waypoint is out of range and will not be reached
  • the distance between Home-Position and the waypoint is larger than 250m (or the max-range of the NC-license)
  • set the waypoint closer or start from a closer position

26 "ERR:No SD-Card"

  • The option "No flight without SD-Card" is activated but there is no SD-card in the NC

27 "ERR:SD Logging aborted"

  • The option "No flight without SD-Card" is activated and there were problems with the Log-file
  • maybe contact problems od the SD-card

28 "ERR:Flying range!"

  • in the "SETTINGS.INI" (SD-card in the NC) the parameter "MAX_FLYING_RANGE = xxx" is set and the range is exceeded.
  • set this parameter to zero if it is not needed

29 "ERR:Max Altitude"

  • in the "SETTINGS.INI" (SD-card in the NC) the parameter "MAX_FLYING_ALT" is set and the altitude is exceeded.
  • NC with a commercial license will uses "emergency gas" when the altitude goes 10m above this value to bring it back into the allowed range.
  • set this parameter to zero if it is not needed

30 "No GPS Fix"

  • no GPS fix while Motors are starting
  • the option "No Start without GPS-Fix" in the KopterTool is activated

31 "compass not calibrated"

  • The magnet sensor on the NC s not calibrated
  • (Not for MK3Mag)

32 "BL Selftest error"

  • One BL-Ctrl reports a selftest error

33 "no ext. compass"

  • invalid answer of the external compass
  • check cable to the magnet sensor
  • the flat cable on "Debug" might be too long

34 "compass sensor"

  • the magnet sensor value is invalid
  • the sensor might be defective

0 "No Error"

  • No Error
