AutoPilot Glider(no motor) Released at 5000 Feet 2 miles from landing location...How would you setup the glider to land at this location such that it maximizes it's glide slope?This is the glider…Continue
Want to just send up a unit we can track on a test bed and see what it does via the log? We don't have to have a plane to test the electronics I'll add my GPS tracker and we will know where it lands…"
"There are several pretty good discussions on the v2.67 thread that are relevant. One part discusses airspeed control and that the code isn't really flexible enough now to handle gliders. My observation here is that there's a…"
"I have also wondered this. How the APM would react if its not getting to were it needs to be. But by controlling the decent rate of the airplane and controlling the airspeed. I wonder what would actually happen. I have a airplane that is chomping at…"
"I need this feature. What about a glider? Do you guys think that a glider could be lifted off the ground and the glider could release itself once it hit the required altitude, regardless of speed or location? "
"This is a very good question. So the autopilot could cause it to not make it back to the desired location for landing? I don't know but is there a setting to disable logic for powered flight? Perhaps it thinks it has power…"
