in these days we're doing test of stable version of code for Multipilot32 + VRIMU FULL. We hope to release the stable version of code before the end of month.In this video is possible to see how work return to home , I'm very happy of this result ... During the debug is possible to have some problem if the point of return is exactly the same where you pilot your drone :) See video ... It's very nice .. :)
Functionality available tested for two week :
Stable mode work fine .
Loiter is good and affordable precision start from 1x1 m box to 5x5 m box depend of wheater condition.
Retur to home work fine ... have only a problem the quad return to last loiter position instead of starting point.
In the next week we continue to test and improve :
Altitude hold .
