I have now done a few good test flights where I'm very happy with the way the APM & airframe have done just as asked!

I have been flying very close by and watching its every twist and turn, I now wish to push out the distance being covered.

 

When planning a flight over a longer distance which is the best option 1 or 2?

And by longer I mean it will still be in LOS ;o)

 

Option 1:

Option 2:

  • G'day Martin,

    Option 1 is probably a better way to flight plan, But Long legs will still work fine even with strong cross winds. I have done many long flights with individual legs of more than 5km and APM performs xtrack navigation very well. If you do any long flights, make use of the elevation graph, It is a great tool for working out a lowest safe altitude.

    Cheers

  • Hi martin,

    I would say option 1 for windy days etc would keep things more on course (even considering xtrack) so may be a better habbit to get into? Also if you have set altitude to geo lookup then you will also have more chance if flying over an elevation.

    Just a thought, interested to hear what the old hands think on this as Ive been pondering the same thing.

    Regards
