I have been reading about the simple mode with great interest. I wonder how I could use it in order to obtain full pan control on my octocopter (http://vimeo.com/52748327). I would like to control the octo in simple mode, while a camera guy controls pan/tilt of the camera on another radio (using student cable). This way the camera operator can pan tilt as he likes while I fly the octo on compass only. A more interesting application would be to combine simple mode with auto. This way the octo could be set up for a fixed, planned, pattern and the camera operator could point the cam wherever he likes along this route. The pilot then would only be a safety pilot. Is this possible? Can I combine simple mode and auto mode in such a way that the yaw-axis will be independent of flight direction, just as when combining simple mode an stabilize mode?
