I want to plan a long range survey flight, I will be using a skywalker x8 to do the test, but I am wondering what settings I should use on the APM for things like failsafes and loss of telemetry situations. I want to cover an area of around 1 square KM.
How should I set up the APM to continue with the Auto flight if I loose radio or telemetry?
What is the max range of 3DR radios at 900 mhz? should I expect loss of telemetry at max distance of 800m?
What about radio signal? I have a futaba 18mz supposed to have a range of around 2km, I think the furthest point on the flight plan is about 800m so I don't think I will loose signal, but has anyone done flying this far away?
What is a good WP radius setting?
Finally, the camera triggering, the flight plan was created with the mission planner survey tool, it said the distance between pics should be 78m, but I do not see a waypoint on the plan to set the CAM_TRIG_DIST, should I add this manually?
