YOu do it with the mission planner.
Yes, sorry, I meant arducopter. Not traiditional helo. Never used traditional before..
the mission planner and HK_CSG can create scripts for take-offs and landings., But not with heli's, Helis are kinda old school and not very stable.
This the reason for the the new Arducopter code "AC2" . Witch it doesn not support heli's, Is to take the Arducopter from just a quad to totally autonomous. witch it's really close. You should get a quadcopter. they = lots of fun. :O)
