Is there a way to trigger/jump to a new navigation command based on a low MAH level or voltage drop? I'm wondering about this as a safety measure for high altitude / long range flights over the corn fields here. The type of behavior in which I'm interested can be described as follows:
For long range:
3: Go to waypoint B // lets say 10 miles away
- Conditional: If you reach 60% battery (consumed 40%), jump to step 6
6: Return home
For high altitude: similar check
1: Climb at efficient rate to 10,000 feet // or more, whatever
- Conditional: if you reach 60% battery OR if the voltage shows signs of dropping, jump to step 3
3: Motor off and glide back to home
The main reason I'm wondering is battery integrity. If it gets cold and only provides 4000/5000 mah capacity, then the plane would endlessly try to climb (and crash with no motor), or keep heading to a distant waypoint even though the turnaround point has been passed. The main culprit? Cold, aging battery, whatever.
Thanks for your help!
nothing exists like this.
But your idea is cool, Adam.
Something for future versions? Maybe you should submit an enhancement issue... :-)
