"There has always been a counter argument for using tailsitters as VTOL, that is the wind. I think they can take off and transition fine but landing at a 45 deg angle is problematic. Surely that can be overcome, right? "
"Should we start a concerted effort to bring new controllers and their GC's to the forefront? Seems it would be in our best interest to have some choices in a year or so. Or do we think PX4 and APM will be with us for the next 5 years?"
"I have always thought the lawnmower pattern was inefficient due to all the 90 deg turns. I hope to see a gain in efficiency using a spiral. Though I am not sure how efficient a constant turn with be.
Also, I assume the MP auto way point…"
