    Hi Andre,

    If you have no control then that means the plane thinks it is outside the fenced area (either by GPS position or altitude). It will have switched to GUIDED mode and will be trying to fly to the fence return point.

    The idea is to only enable fencing once you have taken off and are flying inside the fenced area. If you want to takeoff with fencing enabled then you would need to set the minimum altitude of the fence to zero, but that will disable the ability of the plane to prevent crashing into the ground.

    Cheers, Tridge

    PS: Sorry for being slow to see this thread, I've been off sick for a bit

    If you started "outside" the fence when you turned it on, then it immediately goes to GUIDED mode to go back to the starting point. Did you define your fence coordinates correctly? Do you have GPS lock when you turn it on?

  • One thing i can tell about this forum not much activity all people have questions but not much answers.

    On the openpilot forum witch is much smaller community you can be asure to get a answer.
  • Is there really no one that can answer me.
