Waypoints mission with sonar

Hi, 

I connected a sonar to my 3DR quadcopter (with pixhawk on it). I want the quad to keep constant altitude above the ground (about 1.5 meters) during waypoints navigation. Altough the sonar works fine on loiter, it doesnt seem to have an effect when auto-navigating. quick look at the arducopter code made me think that auto mode really doesn't use sonar. does that make any sense? Is there a way to change it?

Thank you,

Udi

  • Im sorry, but i couldn't find a solution for that problem. I think it is not possible, but I haven't checked it for a long time, and maybe some things have changed.

"Wow, Ning2 looks really great on mobile. I had sort of drifted away as my browse-time went more on my phone, so this is great."
