"Is there anything wrong with using this sort of hardware on the ground side of the link(s)? Just thinking it would save some airframe complexity and weight! "

"It does move slightly on rtl and loiter, but only just. Control surfaces have great movement, I can almost get the big beast doing aerobatics with no load on board. I posted my log file…"

"Yes RTL is great. Check that your modes are properly registering maybe? Does it budge at all?"

"Flys great on manual and stabilised, but the stock settings don't move it at all on rtl and any guided autopilots. It's too stable, needs higher pids. Does yours work fine on stock pids in rtl mode?"
