My Drone will not Hover

Discussion in 'X-Star / X-Star Premium' started by Darth_Wayner, Jun 2, 2019.

  1. My X-Star premium will drop like a rock unless I keep the stick "trimmed" and apply throttle at all times.

    - I calibrated the controller
    - I calibrated the compass
    - My batteries (controller and aircraft) are fully charged
    - I have not performed a firmware update because My Starlink is not Saying I am due for one (The in-app FAQ says it will tell you when the FW is out of date).
    - Air temperature is about 60F
    - This occurs at all altitudes

    Has anyone ever had this problem?
  2. Will it auto take off??
  3. Yes. If I hold the take/off land button, it will apply throttle and ascend to it's pre-determined altitude (about 10-15 ft), and then immediately drop and crash.

    I can also take off manually by applying throttle, but the drone will drop and crash if i take my finger off the stick.
  4. I would call Autel, could have a bad mother board
  5. I'm having the same problem. Did you get a solution?
  6. No I have not gotten a solution...
    I've been flying it by holding my throttle stick up, but it's definitely not how I'd like to fly. I don't expect I would get an answer from Autel and I'm not willing to put a lot of money into new circuit boards etc. given this issue started for me after so few flight hours and it could just happen again. When I get tired of flying this way I'll probably just buy a new drone from a different manufacturer.

  7. Having the same issue. No hover at all. Updated firmware, batteries fully charged, just won't hover.
  8. Had the same problem and talked to Autel. I just sent it back to them 3 days ago. No response yet.

  9. Thank you. Please keep us posted. We figured it was firmware, but we updated everything and that didn't help.
  10. Yes, please. Update us. I haven’t contacted customer service yet since it’s a weekend, but found this thread when I Googled my ‘no hover’ problem.
