"Great work! Rally land abort sounds like a nice safety feature. I can imagine that it would although be useful to train landing in stabilized or manual mode. Can you make a video of your tests? A demo video would be really cool."

Not Sure commented on Michael Day's blog post Landing from Rally Points
"hence my comment on making it tangential exit, the early procerus stuff wasn't tangential and whilst it landed quite well, the difference in the performance of how UAV with tangential exit landed was much better."

Landing from Rally Points

Posted on April 23, 2014 at 9:00pm 20 Comments

Howdy devs,

I've been working on this for a few months now and I think it is finally ready for evaluation for a possible merge into master. My team has been wanting to simplify planning for autonomous landings so that mission planning for autonomous landing is less complex. Our motivation is that…
