"A very good thing I see in Ebee software and you could add is corridor mapping : dedicated to linear projects such as route. Digitalise a route, specify width and software design a set of parallel lines, with proper turns between segments."

""Sort of sounds like intentional sand-bagging." - Rob, could you explain what do you mean? We used same route for 3 different copters. Without any wait's in waypoints. For each copter we tested how are they behave with all supported…"

"Do you even need to set a 1 second pause? Copter should fly the route perfectly with a 0.1 second pause surely...?"

"Alexey, I'm not sure your point to Rob is valid: if "stop and turn" is used for phantom, it isn't a useful comparison unless you do the same for Ardupilot. Using artificial assumptions and poorly tuned gains when comparing any…"

"Hi Rob, of course we can get almost ideal route following using this trick, but it will be far from real life. And not interesting )"

"Hi Alexey, You can get much better performance from Arducopter with a very simple change.  Just set a 1 second pause/hold time at every waypoint.  Now the copter will hit each waypoint exactly, hold for one second, then move on.What you…"

"Marco, if you have fine-tuned ArduCopter vehicle why not to repeat our test? It will take just 5 minutes... I can send you test routes (in UgCS or KML format). We will add your results to article. Also it will be interesting to see difference…"

"Hi Alexey, making a perfect tuning with Ardupilot is imperative, otherwise it's better to buy other drones almost tuned from the factory.But what i mean is: this kind of comparison would be made with an Ardupilot quad perfectly tuned, or the…"

"Pablo, you are right! Very big advantage of ArduPilot/PX4 that you can decide when and where to fly - according local rules, acquired permissions etc. We are receiving lot of urgent requests from professional operators - we are on the field, my DJI…"

"Hi Chris, Marco - we used almost default parameters. Purpose of this article was not to make competition between drones or autopilots. We wanted to point to important issue for flights safety. BTW, how many ardupilot users will spend lot of time to…"

"About "Ardupilot quad", to have that result it means that something has been wrong in the parameterization of the drone."

Chris commented on Kristaps Brass's blog post Precision of Vertical Maneuvers – It's All About Safety
"I suspect what's happening is that Arducopter is saying it's hitting the waypoint early as it goes up, thats why your getting a lift before and a drop before the actual waypoint.  Some tweaking of the parameters should yield far…"
