Cutdown Initiated Unexpectedly

The cutdown system has a timer which will activate cutdown after ~3 hours regardless of whether or not the cutdown command has been sent. To prevent cutdown from initiating earlier than expected, make sure to reset the cutdown system before your flight (click here for instructions). After resetting, you may unplug the cutdown system battery until you are ready to construct your flight string. Plugging the battery back in will reactivate the countdown timer from its last time-stamp.
