How does the circle flight mode work on a Quad? I'd like to test it, once I get my Quad repaired and flying again.
Does the Quad just spin or does it fly around a waypoint? If it flies around a waypoint, is diameter of the flight path adjustable? Also can we adjust the direction the Quad faces? Like flying around a waypoint and always have the Quad pointing to the center of the waypoint or always pointing away from the waypoint.
It will fly a 10m (default) circle around the initial location when triggered. It is adjustable. Look for Loiter radius.
It works, just not sure how well.
I've used the 'circle' mode a few times lately, it's a good idea but needs a bit of development I think, does a very lazy circle, not very obvious circles in winds, hesitant! Does point to the center which is good, center being the point when switched to that mode, upgraded center point if manually flown to a different location.
