Did you launch from the catapult in auto mode??
Yes，It was in auto mode.
Any suggestion for the perfect settings for the first waypoint?
The important setting is that the first waypoint should set to "take off".
We stopped launching in auto mode since we had some misfires on the catapult. When the wind would blow and move the plane the GPS would think it was launching and the X8 would try to fly from the launcher. However we did have several successful launches--First way point straight ahead at 100 feet altitude. That was the easy part--the landings were a bit more challenging..
