Hi all.
I'm new to this forum (and also novice in the set-up of a drone) and need some help please. I'm flying a fixed wing drone (<2 kg) to do mapping. The plane is fitted with a pixhawk and flight planning and control using MissionPlanner (v 1.3.68) / ArduPlane (v 3.9.11).
When I am doing my preflight tests, everything works except there is no response to the throttle (Pixhawk has GPS fix & plane arms). If I view the radio calibration page in MP, there is a response on the throttle bar when I move the throttle lever on the transmitter. Also, if I set the transmitter to Auto mode, the engine fires up (which says to me that it is all wired up correctly).
I had the plane flying fine last year but haven't used it for a while - I have been trying to set up for a new camera. I don't think I have changed any parameter settings apart from those for the camera trigger and feedback.
Any help would be appreciated, thanks

Hi all.
SOLVED I have found the issue. The flight mode had changed, so whe I thought I was in FBW I was in something else.
