Today was my first auto flight with my arduplane bixler. Unfortunately didnt go as expected but luckily  the plane was saved with no scratch. I have attached google earth screenshots as I cannot interpret whether it was mag offset or very windy conditions that resulted in a snake like flight path. The plane seemed to try to stay on course (and it did in the beginning and the final phase) whenever it was flying protected from wind gusts.

Apart from the wind gusts, in the aftermath I also noticed that CG was a bit behind.

 Hope the data provided will be enough (Google Earth screenshots, Log file)

So mag offsets too high OR wind gusts and CG a bit behind?3691211640?profile=original3691211761?profile=original
