I had a Droidworx ADX4 Coax Octo which during a 8 min flight it would just yaw suddenly, and I would have to give full opposite rudder to stop the yaw.

I ended up getting a standard Droidworx octo frame and migrating the parts across.

And guess what, in 7 mins, it yawed suddenly twice. One straight after a descent from 30m to 5 m, and a second time it turned 90 degrees left whilst at the hover at 1m.

As part of the migration I wrapped the power wires with RF insulation mesh.

I've checked the logs and compared that with the onboard video. The magnet and inclination values were pretty constant, and so were the motor current draws.

I see on that the compass value changes from pretty much north to west, which is consistent with the video showing the aircraft yaw from pointing north to pointing west.

One thing that did puzzle me was the "R/C stick" values in the logs showed Y=-27 and some other minus values as it was turning left. I'm not sure whether this negative Y value is a result of me pushing right rudder to stop the yaw, or weather it's a fault RX causing this.

I have removed the GPS and navi board and put the nav and gps board from my CX4. Will test fly again tomorrow.

Hi,

Well it doesnt sound like magnetic compass interference to me. That doesnt cause sudden jolts like that. RF insulation does not stop DC magnetism BTW, and anything that does will also distort earth magnetism.

I would try a test flight without GPS or navi at all. It could be a bad yaw gyro connection.

Ok put my CX4's navi and gps onto the Octo and got magnet errors, so I recalibrated and the Octo flew fine.

So now with the octos navi and gps in the CX4, I did a calibration and the cx4 flew fine too.

I suspect that the calibration in the park fixed the issue which was probably caused by calibrating in my house
