Mission Option Loiter with 3 turns question.

Mission Planner 1.2.63 and Arducopter 3.0.1  is flying mission fine until I add a waypoint to Loiter with 3 turns.

Some mission WPs with delays etc..  all work then goto WP 4

WP 4   just a normal way point altitude 100 feet

Loiter with Turns     set turns to 3    

RTL

The first time I did this mission it went to WP 4 then landed at WP 4.

Remove the Loiter with 3 turns - Mission completed as expected with RTL at default alt.

Then I investigated the original mission.

OK,  so I forgot to set the Altitude for the Loiter with 3 turns WP

I set the altitude for that entry to 100 feet.

Flew Mission again.  Copter landed at the WP 4.

The copter is arriving at WP 4 with the correct altitude but just continues to descend

Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong or is this a bug   Thanks

  • I have been having that weired behaviour too using the loiter_turns.

    This is a bug in the firmware and it is actually mentioned on Randy mackay 3.01 release notes.

    it is warning number 4

    http://www.diydrones.com/forum/topics/arducopter-3-0-1-released

    so i guess it is just a matter of time for it to be fixed on 3.02

  • It sounds similar to a previous bug in that the command had to followed by a waypoint or it was ignored.

    I guess through this experience it has become habit to use a final waypoint/land combination instead of RTL.

    Would be interested to hear if that combination works in this instance.
