Change Failsafe Modes

Hi All,I am using the throttle fail safe and have it configured and working. The issue I am having is I dont know how to change the modes.If I test the failsafe in the CLI it works but its using FBW_A. I would like to use RTL as the failsafe mode.I am using APM 2.11CheersSimon

  • I am using the standard pre-compiled version (2.22) that I installed via Mission Planner. Was this code compiled with THROTTLE_FAILSAFE set to 0 or 1?

    Simon,  I just made a serious revision to the way the failsafe(s) work.  It has not been documented in the wiki yet.  The short explanation would be that there is a short failsafe (loss of signal for more than 1.5 seconds) and a  long failsafe (loss of signal for more than 20 seconds).  For Auto and Loiter modes you have a choice (through the configuration) of if they will be affected by the failsafe or not.  If so then the mode is switched to RTL.  For the lower modes (Manual through FBW-B) the mode is switched to Circle for short failsafe and then switched to RTL for long failsafe.  For short failsafe the mode is returned to the original mode if signal is restored, but for long failsafe the mode will remain RTL until you change it.
  • Found it - Its inthe APM_Config.h file if anyone needs to know.
