Does anyone know how set the APM to return to Home AND then command a servo when at home? in this case, it will be a parachute servo...

This will be truly failsafe for our UAVs since it has parachute recovery system and we have some customers asking for this feature. Will be nice to offer.

  • Wesley, I think there's a way to make deploy the chute via APM, on a mission. Just like driving a servo for taking pictures.... will try this soon for the parachute and will let you know. Please remind me in about two weeks!  :-)


  • where can I post this to have more exposure?
