Hello all.. Hopefully this is the right place for this topic.

I am using an E-Flite Apprentice as my host UAV.  I have had 4 successful flights so far with APM2 and am relatively pleased, but I think I need to do some fine tuning and looking for some advice of where to start.

The most peculiar of the items is that in just about every case where I am flying to waypoints the plane circles the waypoint before continuing, shouldn't it fly to it or close to it and keep going? Or do I have something set wrong?  In the screenshot below, there were 4 waypoints, 3 of which it circled.

Just need a nudge in the right direction. Thanks!!

  • That was the behavior when the plane missed a WP(flew outside the WP radius). In the latest version I thought this was fixed so that if you crossed a line perpendicular to the flight path and through the WP it will switch to the next WP. Are you useing 2.5x ?
