I am very pleased with the Pixhawk, however I am wondering about the very low speed in loiter, guided or follow me mode. I am not able to exceed 5-6 meters/sec.
Any ideas how I can increase velocity?

The maximum horizontal speed of the copter during loiter mode can be adjusted with the Loiter Speed (aka WPNAV_LOIT_SPEED) parameter on the Config/Tuning >> APM:Copter Pids screen.  The value is expressed in cm/s so 500 = 5m/s.  The maximum acceleration during Loiter mode is always 1/2 of the Loiter speed.

See http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/loiter-mode/

Thanks, works fine. :)

But what about the follow me mode ? How to increase the speed in follow me mode ? Or does increasing the loiter speed will result in increased follow me speed ??
