I programmed channel 8 on the TX to the THR switch. Changes were also made in MP to invoke "Simple Mode" on channel 8. Testing channel 8 on the TX works, as I see the PWM jump in MP and on the TX. However, while in flight and switching the THR switch on, Simple Mode doesn't get turned on.
I tested channel 8 and the THR switch with RTL assigned and all worked fine when the THR switch was turned on. When Simple Mode is assigned to channel 8 and switch the THR switch on before arming, the Iris is in Simple Mode. It's just when trying to turn Simple Mode on during flight that it doesn't work.
Reading the APMCopter Wiki, I was under the impression that Simple Mode could be invoked while in flight ("for cases when the copter is far enough away that it’s heading is not apparent.").
Just wanted to confirm if Simple Mode can be turned on while in flight, or only before arming. Thanks!
