Hey guys, I have the AR.Drone 2.0 with the ardrone_autonomy using ROS. I followed this great tutorial: link:text and managed to get my joystick to fly the AR.Drone well.

When I take off, fly and land the drone, I can no longer take off again. I have to disconnect the battery, wait for the drone to recalibrate and run the .launch file again. I found this to happen sometimes when I used the keyboard from this tutorial also:


I wanted to know if anyone has experienced this problem. I have tried to just terminate the .launch file and re run in the command prompt but it seems like the only way is to physically restart the AR.Drone by pulling out the battery. Is there perhaps a command that can turn off and then on the drone?

Thanks so much!
