Arduplane AutoTakeoff

i am going to setup auto-takeoff for the first time. I dont know the location. can i just setup any mission at any location on mission planner with the first point being auto take off and then use that mission ?

from reading the documentaion the plane will take off in the direction i throw it to the defined altitude. Then i can switch back to manual i guess.

Is this correct ?

    Yes.  As you describe the plane will take off in the direction thrown and climb at the specified pitch angle to the specified altitude.  Once reached it will begin the mission at which point you could take over in manual.

    Thanks, Grant.
