Thought I would start a FOLLOW ME mode specific discussion.
When I tried follow me it kept the hight I specified in menu
Be helpful to know which menu....settings menu...parameter menu/list....
Ill go looking....
Just was thinking after someone asked me if I was able to set a distance that the quad would keep away from gps'd target...
Could a setting/parameter setting be added to set the number of <2 second> gps updated waypoints -or- amount of time delay for the quad to stay behind on the FOLLOW ME trail?
This would be awesome if this could be implemented !!!
In looking in the settings menu the only altitude setting is for GUIDED FLIGHT ALTITUDE. Is this the one you are talking about? I didnt try that one as I wasnt sure if GUIDED correlated to FOLLOW ME or not. If this is the one, awesome.
If not, can you point me to the one you are talking about?
Thanks in advance.
You canset min and max distance in menu and theres only one altitude setting which works on way points/guided
Just a quick question.. would this work with an airplane? If so, how would the plane deal with the speed of the ground target? If I am in a car, moving less than the required speed of the plane to remain at altitude, etc..
Just thinking about all this..
thanks so Much! Love this idea
It would work on an airplane - the code is just doing 'guided' flight to a waypoint. When it reaches the waypoint it will just circle over you.
I'm glad you liked follow-me. Can someone try 'lead-it' mode with a copter? To enable this mode, go to settings and change the min and max distance for follow-me to something other than 0.
What will happen is that the quad will stay in front of you, so if you turn right it will move right. Similarly if you tilt the tablet fore and back it will move towards and away from you.
I'd love to see a video of this (I'm a plane person)
Just wondering, could follow-me mode be used with an RC plane as the target to be followed so that we could use a multicopter to get in-flight footage of an RC plane?
Tested today Lead it mode with a quadcopter...and it is really amazing! You can pilot your copter with your smartphone!
If rain stays away I'll try to do a short video of this great function!
I've used Samsung Galaxy S3 connected thru a bluetooth bridge to a 3DRradio link 433Mhz to MegaPirateNG copter.
During today tests I noticed that that in Lead it Mode it is not possible to switch to RTL with Ch7.
You need to deactivate Lead it Mode and then RTL works again. It's too bad as, in case of emergency, RTL is a good way to save the model.
