Curious, what is the furthest you've flown your IRIS+ using waypoints via DroidPlanner. Has anybody successfully gotten a fully autonomous 6 mile flight and safely landed at a different waypoint?
Is there an obvious way to disable this setting in the DroidPlanner UI that I'm missing?
You have to use mission planner.
Be carefull while trying and check your settings for rc transmitter connection loss, I suggest RTL.
If it does lose the rc transmitter connection won't the IRIS+ simply finish the waypoints it was provided?
depends how your failsafes are set up. you can have them so the iris ignores the loss of signal, and continues its mission, or when radio signal is lost triggers the RTL.
Was this with stock antennas? what equipment still had a good connection at that range (fpv video, handheld Tx, computer ground station, android follow me)? What kind of gear are you using?
