Consider this scenario: I want to get the quadcopter up some meter..quite far, not very high but beyond the height where it becomes hard to see its rotation and whether it goes up or down.
1. Put it in Loiter mode and use the throttle to rise, but what do you do when you want it to go down again? If you cant see how fast its going down, how can you get it safely down? In loiter mode, will it fall to the ground if you set throttle to 0 or will it glide down as fast as possible without falling?
2. Or should I use the Position mode to manually use the throttle? But this sounds much more dangerous..
