This device is not, and may not be, offered for sale or lease, or sold or leased, until authorization is obtained. This will not work.
The number autopiot the serial number you were looking for. Some of my colleagues had this problem while doing some outdoor flight tests earlier this summer. From what I understand, GPS location can occasionally jump s of meters. We will then inform you on our homepage about possibilities how to get the update.
Go to Google Maps and go to the area of your interest Click on the lower left to select “Earth” mode Take a screenshot of the maps.

The same problem also occurred to me when flying in GPS mode and that the Pelican went crazy which resulted in some minor crashes. Do not use a “final waypoint” with a height of 0m for landing. In reply to this post by kjackson. My question is, what kind of filtering if any is being done by autopilot, to smooth out the GPS signals.
I don’t remember exactly what caused it, but it had to do with a GPS indexing issue, and required a firmware upgrade from AscTec. If your UAV is new, this is our aschec connection and you do not need to change anything.

Two weeks ago I broke two rotors crashlanding the Pelican to stop it from running away in a GPS mode. Yesterday we flew the Pelican in GPS mode, and after a few minutes of stable flight, all of a sudden it started going in a direction, even when i took my hands off the RC controller.
Google Maps is quite easy. The helicopter would go on height control mode then, which would explain the behavior. In the new “System Info” window click on “Update Information”.
