"Ignore the CMD_INDEX error for now, it's not something to be changed manually and will not affect the outcome of your flights. Do you have any logs for your crash, .log and .tlog?"

"Thanks for taking a look. Yes I have learned that I need to fly higher on these autopilot missions. I researched the CDM_INDEX error and didn't find much information. What did you think about the way point radius? Are those too small and close?…"

John Moore replied to Dave Schmitt's discussion Does Channel 7 RTL feature overide current flight mode??
"What about setting other Modes via Mission planner?  I have a momentary toggle an a 2 position switch.  So I can only set 2 modes via my TX.  I do have telemetry, an Mission Planner on a Netbook, but have had no success that I can…"

Kenobi replied to Dave Schmitt's discussion Does Channel 7 RTL feature overide current flight mode??
"Sorry , i forgot to give feedback. Channel 7 RTL set in MP does override any flight mode you are in and RTL will be activated. if you switch it off, you return to your previous flight mode."

John Moore replied to Dave Schmitt's discussion Does Channel 7 RTL feature overide current flight mode??
"What ever came of this?  I am trying to set the Flight Mode of my APM 2.5 via Mission Planner connected over Telemetry.  Can not tell if the mode changes from what the mode switch is set too.   John"

Kenobi replied to Dave Schmitt's discussion Does Channel 7 RTL feature overide current flight mode??
"If anyone can confirm that this is actually tested and works then i would definately prefer my 3 pos switch set to Stabilize,alt hold and loiter. While channel 7 used for RTL too."
