    First question - I was practicing hand catching today and I got a “motor obstructed” error. I landed, shut off the motors then started back up again – no error message for the rest of the flight. I’m wondering if I may have pulled down on the landing gear slightly while hand catching before shutting off the motors and that triggered the “motor obstructed” error. Does that make sense?

    Second question – When using the IOC Waypoint feature, the C1 and C2 buttons don’t trigger waypoints on and off. I don’t see a choice in the function list for the C1and C2 for waypoints but there is mention of using them for waypoints somewhere in the manuals. Do I have to change a setting to get C1 and C2 triggering waypoints?

    your motor obstructed error might have been a fluke.... watch and see if it happens again.

    The C1 and C2 buttons are programmable in the GO app... and probably the default is not what you want (I don't remember what the default is).
