Looks ok to me. In ver 1 when you switch to RTL it is show RTL and then Loiter - works ok, it is actually running Loiter command with home position as center (as I've read from its code). So I guess it is the same with ver 2.
I'm still having issues. Using the CLI (either through the Mission Planner or the HK GSC), I can set the modes normally. They save, and repeat as set. However, in flight, selecting (from the Tx) Circle, Loiter and RTL all report "Auto Loiter", and the aircraft RTLs with each of them.
Any other way I can monitor what the actual APM mode is real-time, while in flight?
i got my APM yesterday and having the same problem. i just have a two position switch 0-1 on on 0 i have manual and on 1 i d like to have RTL but it showes always loiter in GCS and in ArdupilotSim. all the latest versions.
thanks for the hint. tested the APM HIL during lunchbreack and worked perfekt. will test tomorrow in real live.
Chris thanks for the help ha yesterday my first successful autonomous flight in real life. The log looks a bit strange but I think caused by the minimum space I had yesterday for testing the auto mode is the reason for not that precise flight route. I will be on a big airfield during the weekend for more detailed tests.
But so far I’m happy with the setup it works great.
Hello! The modes were showing up OK in my case in Mission Planner's artificial horizon window; I would switch from Stabilize to Alt-hold, to Auto to Simple, but now it shows nothing and as soon as I reach Auto it stays on Auto, no matter what I switch on the radio. I can't tell if it's a setup problem or just a cosmetic because I haven't flown it yet, and I don't want to take off if there is a setup problem.
What should I try?
