We've still got some work to do on the ArduPilot 2.5 code, but I did have a chance to test the new improved loiter (RTL) mode with a Superstar EP today. How's this for perfect circles? Exactly 100m diameter. The only variation was due to the wind.

Nice work, Jason!

Looks good :) Thanks to all who are working on the 2.5 code I have been learning lots already

woohoo! Did you try out the new AP with Radio control? I've not flown it yet, but my EZstar just got a nose job and is ready to get back out there. I just folded up some foam core and it seems to be very structural since it's from a single sheet. Handsome, not so much. Looking forward to your comments about 2.5.

Anyone having trouble compiling 2.51 ?

I got my 2.5 maiden in today. I like having stabilize and WPN on the switch.

Stabilization mode seems more "well-tuned" out of the box for me than 2.4.

Still testing WPN mode.

Do I have to shut the Tx off to make it go into the RTL loiter?

Nice work! thanks!

Earl, 2.51 compiles fine for me. Do other versions compile okay for you? If not, reinstall Arduino...
