I need some clarification about the "autoland" settings in AP2.6 as listed below. Can anyone assist?
Let's say I want to begin my approach at WP4 and cut my throttle at WP5. Do I replace 998 with 5 and create a WP6 then use 6 as my cut-off?
Also, can I ue several Waypoints at the slow speed or is it just SLOW then CUTOFF?
Any help would be appreciated.
// This section is for setting up auto landings
// You must have your airframe tuned well and plan your flight carefully to successfully execute auto landing
#define SLOW_WAYPOINT 998 // When this becomes the current waypoint we will decrease cruise_airspeed to AIRSPEED_SLOW. Replace 998 with the beginning of your landing pattern
#define AIRSPEED_SLOW 10
#define THROTTLE_SLOW 30 // This should be the throttle value that produces AIRSPEED_SLOW in straight and level flight
#define THROTTLE_CUT_WAYPOINT 999 // When this becomes the current waypoint we will cut the throttle; set it so it is well beyond the touchdown zone so that it is not reached, else you will enter RTL mode or loop waypoints
// Remember that this is engaged with it becomes the next waypoint to go to, not when it is reached. If it is reached, the plane will climb again and RTL.
