Pixhawk 2.1 Return to Nearest Waypoint?

Hi everyone,

Is there a feature in the Pixhawk 2.1 autopilot system that, in the event of a radio failsafe or low voltage failsafe, will command the drone to return to a previously set waypoint and land there for recovery? All input/ideas are very much appreciated.

  • Hi Marc.

    for the Rally Point alt on VTOL Plane, can we command the plane to land using Q_xxx mode on much lower alt compare with Home default Alt?

    for example: the VTOL plane take off from 200 AGL and in case of RTL should be landing on the rally point that is lower AGL altitude i.e 100 AGL

  • Hello,

    See Rally Point feature,
