Started this discussion. Last reply by David Boulanger Dec 10, 2015. 4 Replies

"It's a mode of operation just like Manual, Learning, Steering etc.  Or I would assume it can be programmed into a mission on Mission Planner.  Try Ardupilot.org."

"Also, if your mark is round its behavior in the wind and waves will be totally different than a boat as shown in the video.  Try Ardupilot.org and post on the forum.  "

"There is a Loiter function now.  I have not used it yet.  I guess it depends on how much your mark is allowed to move to achieve the purpose of it."

"Also a number of autonomous test flights can be watched on youtube.  SWFDrones is the channel name.  Did a ROI that worked out very well as a test.  3.2.1 works very well once everything is set up properly."

"I have not tried simple mode.  I fly a 600 size Heli on 3.2.1.  Low head speed, spin blades, and a bit of weight with the various payloads.  You need to check your vibrations on the z axis to make sure they are not to high.  A…"
