I've been following this forum for a while and it has been helping me out a lot !
I am trying to get a better understanding of the pixhawk algorithms and was wondering if one of you could tell me "when" the pixhawk updates its GPS position lock in loiter mode.
For example, if i'm switching from stabilize to loiter, will it try to maintain its position on the GPS coordinates it received at the very moment i switched the flight mode ? Or has it already an estimated position in memory ?
Also, when i use the roll and the pitch commands while being in Loiter, I know it changes the target point. What point will the drone try to maintain ? Is is the last received GPS coordinates after I release the roll/pitch command, or will it first stop and then cumpute a new GPS position ?
I hope my question is clear enough.
Anyway, a great thanks to all of you.
Have a nice day.
