Re: Navigation based failsafe

Hello,
I did have all three options enabled in the config file. So it should first rth then land. But it remained in 'endless' rth position. I was able to test this once, because soon after that i had a crash and ruined my gps unit. Waiting on delivery of a mee one.

Question: have you tried during your tests what happens when navivigation to home is engaged and the RC-transmission is re-established? Please look at my post at http:/...

I was testing the GPS mission functionality a few days ago and thought to find out how the quadcopter would rea...
