Autonomous Waypoint Flight Mode in SmartAP!

Now SmartAP autopilot has Autonomous Waypoint Flight Mode. The demo shown in the video above consisted of 4 waypoints. After the last waypoint quadcopter came back to the initial home position and automatically switched to position hold mode there. Moreover, autopilot has Stabilize,Altitude Hold, Position Hold and Return to Home flight modes. Flight can be controlled and managed with QGroundControl Station.

Hi Robero,

Hi Krill,

Cool video!  The way you launch and land is impressive.  Scary but impressive.

Good Luck,

Hi Richard,

Thanks! The snow was everywhere and I didn't want it to damage electronics during take off / landing. So hand launch was an only way.

Good job! I see your autopilot evolving much faster than I expected!

Comment by Kirill on December 1, 2012 at 9:32am

Thanks Yura! I'm trying to develop this and introduce new features as fast as I can.
