Re: Heading hold on Yaw Issues

I posted about this earlier this year

It doesn't matter if MAG is selected to not, the yaw hunts as it it is trying to maintain a fixed heading.

In fast forward flight you don't notice the issue, but any kind of hover, or trying to yaw in slow flight, the board seems to fight you

Currently in r370, the flight mode indicator doesn't differentiate between ANGLE and HORIZON, it shows both as ACC
