For take-off you are supposed to

1) click the start engine flightplan block
2) click the takeoff flightplan block

Hmm. I did that, I think. As I say, it didn't take off, but it did spin the props.

What would I expect to happen at these two stages?
We have no experience (yet) with flying in raw mode with the Parrot Flight Recorder. 

Happy to help debug, but not sure what I'm looking for - why might the GPS prevent takeoff?

I do have a ublox GPS on order, btw.

OK, so I got the Flight Recorder working is sirf mode.

But when I tried to actually fly it, it was a bit weird.

At first, it kept losing GPS fix and switching itself into KILL and refused to do anything. After a few restarts, it seemed to stop doing that, and switching to the Takeoff block span the motors up, but not fast enough to actually take off - it just sat there with everything spinning.

Am I do something wrong? What am I actually supposed to do for takeoff? Go to Start Engine first? Or what?
