• That would be a great feature.

    I'm quite puzzled as to why my quad needs more throttle if I switch from Loiter to Drift mode too...

    Any ideas anyone?

  • It's only to change in config.h this?


    // Drift Mode
    #ifndef DRIFT_THR
      # define DRIFT_THR                  THROTTLE_MANUAL_TILT_COMPENSATED


    // Drift Mode
    #ifndef DRIFT_THR
      # define DRIFT_THR                   THROTTLE_HOLD
    • This treatment works?

  • I would like also to modify the drift mode to use the Alt Hold? Anyone can point the right direction to archive that in APM 3.1?

  • Me 2 ! alt hold in drift mode will be awesome! :)

    • I think 3.2 beta has this. It's called Throttle Assist.

      ArduCopter 3.2-rc1 9-May-2014
      Changes from 3.1.4
      1) Hybrid mode - position hold mode but with direct response to pilot input during repositioning (JulienD, SandroT)
      2) Spline waypoints (created by David Dewey, modified and integrated by Leonard, Randy)
      3) Drift mode uses "throttle assist" for altitude control (Jason)

  • Have you read this as well:

    I was thinking of this flight mode too, that's how I found your post.

  • hi

    I agree that would be good as at the moment I fly in alhold and shoot around like a maniac at 40m high  at 60mph

    good thing is I don't have to worry about over shooting or running in to anything but then have to switch to loiter to put hand break on as it were


  • Anyone? Anyone?   The link on the flight modes wiki sent me here for customizing the flight modes:

    But it isn't giving much detail.
