My Discussion title sums it all up. I am working on a fixed wing drone and i was wondering what will a fixed wing do if it loses the GPS signal. If a quadcopter looses Gps it starts to hover and maintain attitude. what would be the best solution for a fixed wing drone.

        If it's an APM, you really better start reading the wiki.
