"Thanks Randy, well that would be an easier way than mixing the Tx to let us move Auto off since its a different switch. Thru mixing I was able to move both the Auto/RTL off to another switch and all that remains on…"
"Sounds like you're sorted so i'll leave this on the back-burner for now.
We put RTL on the ch7 switch so there isn't really any technical reason why there couldn't be AUTO or any of the other flight modes on there too. …"
I think this can be changed in the code directly using RC_Channel class modification? I am not a direct developer at APM, but have worked over projects with APMs, so might be a possibility;)
"Well I solved it. I did a mix with another switch and put auto and rtl over there so this is even better for me than ch7. I now have all auto functions on the alternate switch.
Thanks for the suggestion"
"Have you tried the rotary switch option.
I have it installed on one Tx and until 2.9 was not really using it, due to having to snatch control to land after a mission, but now, it is proving most convenient. With some labels beside the switch there…"
As a suggestion it would be really nice if we had Auto option for Ch 7I have Auto set on my 3 way switch bottom, but the other day I was in mid switch and thought I was in top, I went down one and my quad flew up and hit the trees, then crashing down.To prevent this it would be nice if I could get Auto on a completely different switch like Ch 7.Randy or other devs, is that an option for future?Thanks, Ed,See More
"Says geofenceing is disabledEven if it was not, all the geofence does is make it RTL I think, and he had it in RTL so I dont think geofence would help at allhttp://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/AC2_Simple_GeoFence"
"Paul, I don't have telelmetry, also I really don't want to take my laptop to the field.Since like the NAZA the only thing APM has to work with it LEDs it would be nice if we had some indication.
What the NAZA does is
I am worried about the GPS lock with the APM and the lack of indication that we have a "good lock", we get a single blue light that on the GPS and the AMP that seems to come on within a second indoors and out. This gives us no…"
"Hey there Randy, do you know if GEOFENCE is going to be added back? Page says currently disabled.
I think it would be nice to set at 1/4 mile so if it ever went that far in a fly away it just "may" make it back home or close anyhow…"
In saw that in the code that geofence.pde, we have it enabled in 2.68. (GEOFENCE_ENABLED == ENABLED)
But of course, that can be enabled to check it in the latest version. Good idea might be to contact @Andrew Tridgell, as I think he…"
"I wonder how you could fly out 3 miles without a GPS ! First, your transmitter won't do it 3 miles with stock antenna, and second, I see only one way to fly that far ad that is Auto mode (which needs GPS).
For security in case of RC Tx signal…"
