Like some folks have said in one of the crash threads I much prefer to take off and land in stabilize mode. Gives me more positive control and takes away some of the issues that seem to occur with the automatic systems engaged near ground.
To do this I have redefined the 3rd flight mode from "Auto" to "Stabilize", keeping "Std" as AltHold and the second position as Loiter. But how can I run an auto mission then except by reversing this to designate switch position #3 back to Auto? Is there a way to do a mix or somesuch and define another switch to throw to get to auto mode without having to delete one of the other modes?
