Hi Fredia,

I would like to ask you to add a "read only" mode in future releases. I some cases it would be great and safe to use such a mode. I would prefer to to use such a mode in case of two men operation, one pilot and one camera operator.

Best regard,

Petr Bartak

Great stuff Fredia.  I love the new EKF and Vibration viewers in particular.

I'd like to point out that these viewers and return-to-me require the vehicle be running Copter-3.3 which will become the default version within a week most likely.

I want to ask  about default altitude value

Does it connects this value with auto take off from tower app??

If we change this value to 3 meters the take off will lift off at 3 meters? .

Comment by Cala on October 5, 2015 at 5:26pm

We have to change from beta? flags looks little different, is the only difference?
