I have been asked by a few people of very similar question: The throttle on their Naze32 behaves unexpectedly, it jumps all over the place as they increase throttle slowly. I actually haven’t changed over to cleanflight yet from baseflight, so I can’t test this glitchy throttle problem myself.
- One described: If I try to fly it, the quadcopter bounces around, if i set it climbing slowly the motors almost pause and it climbs then decends, and then repeat again.
- Another person described: As I raise throttle it jumps at first then it slows down then becomes normal. It just fluctuates as I move throttle up.
- And the third person said: Since I have upgraded to CleanFlight from baseflight, the throttle problem started and been intermittent. The quad is uncontrollable on the verticle axis, it climbs really fast then the motor switched off and go downs, and climbs again. The throttle is almost like a 2 way switch.
I wasn’t sure what the problem was exactly, if I were told by just one person, I would have thought it’s the radio, or ESCs. But all three people have different setup, and the only similarity was they were all using Naze32 with Cleanflight, so I suggested them to test their quad with a non-cleanflight controller. Second person confirm it worked fine, the other people haven’t got back to me yet. If anyone else has this issue, you can try to set P, I and D at 0, see if that makes any difference, if it does it’s very likely to be the code (algorithm) that is causing this problem.
