So I bought the San Disk that had a drone on it and all the specs matched Skydio reqs. Then i got a v17 error again. I did factory reset and uninstalled/reinstalled app. I removed data card and blew in the card slot to ensure no debris had obstructed. I got v17 error.
Then i moved over from Samsung S8+ to Ipad pro 3rd gen.
V17 error again.
Then quite by accident i left the app running and connected and shut down the drone by the power button. When I powered it back on the app found the drone, calibrated and said “Ready to fly”. I pressed the fly button and the camera feed appeared on the ipad. I then exited the flight screen before it started spinning up because i was indoors and its night, cold and very windy outside right now.
I then repeated the experiment on the Samsung S8+.
Starting up in the same order produced the same positive result. Then i shut everything down and turned on the drone first and then started up the app just to test if this was a boot issue. The app found the drone and said ready to fly.
Then just for kicks I went back to the ONN brand sd card and repeated the test. V17 error persisted on first try. Then while S8+ Android app was running i shut off drone and restarted with app running. It found the drone and calibrated instantly and said Ready to Fly. The camera feed came up when i hit fly and then a message came on screen saying Not safe to fly in constricted space, which made me happy.
So theres the data. How do you interpret?
**** THIS IS THE BEST ANSWER**** worked for me at least. Thank you @markd4lyph
for posting! I was encountering the same V17 error after following all instructions perfectly. Looked here on the forum and did as you suggested:
1) left the app running, then
2) shut down the drone and powerd back on. Viola! Simple as that. Connection made.
Hopefully Skydio monitors these boards and can push out a fix as this seems like an initialization thing with two pieces waiting on each other – in technical terms: “no, you go first“ ... “oh no, you were here first, you go“ ... “oh no, I couldn’t, you should just do it first” ... “seriously dude, you deserve this, you go first,” ... yada yada. LOL. Thanks again for the post!
