Hey Michal,

I just tested my theoretical auto RTL with only one failsafe channel (throttle) using a servo. It works exactly as I envisioned it would on my futaba. You should try it out on your Spektrum and make sure it works. The next part (and hardest part) would be to get it working in conjunction with the three way switch so you can manually choose between navigation and RTL and also have the plane RTL if it loses signal (or continue navigating if it was already in navigation mode). The problem is, with Ardupilot 2.0+ the ESC is no longer attached to the board.

Wow... I see you have already done a lot of work in the modification of the code. We just need the throttle to be passed through when the throttle is not on the failsafe, and the throttle to go to a predefined point when the failsafe is on. We should be able to use the fourth input and the thrid output for the ESC. With all the experience you have, the programming should be trivial.
