Hi..i try to change my flight mode to "Auto" for auto takeoff but nothing happened. When i check using telemetry i noticed that the flight mode does not change even after the "Auto" mode is triggered using CH5. It still show "Stabilize". I tried reprogram the APM1 but the result is still the same. There are several modes that showed "stabilized" even the selected mode is triggerd - AUTO, GUIDED and OTHERS except ACRO, ALT_HOLD and STABILIZE. Is there any changes that i should do. Anyone please help
The HUD show´s "no fix" for GPS, you need a GPS 3D fix for the other modes.
It's a safety measure to prevent fly-aways.
I believe that "alt hold" would be a better fallback to "loiter" in case of no GPS fix. I.e., suppose you are in loiter and for some reason the GPS reception is disrupted. In alt hold mode the aircraft would at least not fall from the sky immediately. Currently the fallback to stabilize mode requires immediate action from the user.
Yes, it won't go into Auto mode if you don't have a GPS Fix.
Dror: I agree.
