I just bought two new Herelink v1.1 systems and registered them, updated them, did the stick calibration, updated Solex and did all the necessary startup steps.
When I run Solex, I observe a bizarre “Freeze” issue. The screen just freezes at the current frame and never recovers! Sometimes this issue happens within 10 seconds of starting Solex and sometimes within 1-2 minutes. But it ALWAYS happens!
I think this issue is related to the Android interface since every time it had happened to me, it has happened mostly when I pressed any Android touchscreen button like back, or when I swiped the top menu to access any Android feature.
I have also uploaded a video of my issue on Linkedin which clearly shows what’s happening: Herelink v1.1 Freeze Issue - YouTube
My herelink is updated to the latest available firmware, that is, ARU01220804 at the moment.
My Solex version is 1.2.5
Arducopter version on my drone is v4.3.7
When the screen hangs, the telemetry is lost completely, but the RC still remains functional for a minute or so, and then it disconnects too.
I have come across some people who are experiencing a very similar issue, and that too, even after getting RMA. Link to that post: Second defective Herelink 1.1 TX?
Hence it has something to do with the firmware itself. Also, there’s an issue with the Fastboot screen also. When I press Power+D, I get a blank screen only and not the expected Fastboot screen.
I have been using CubePilot products for a long time now, and my previous herelink v1.0 never had any such issues.
These kinds of issues are not what’s expected from a technology leader like CubePilot.
This is a serious issue as the control of the drone would get “completely lost”, and if the drone is flying in Stabilize, then the results can be as catastrophic as you can imagine.
I request you to please kindly look into this urgently, as it happening with a lot of other users also, and because of this, my builds are completely stuck and my clients are waiting.
Let me know if you need any other information or any other log to help you in your investigation.
