Interesting Firey1 - I';ve just found my JR RX causes major GPS interference....

HI rick
I just stuck my GPS on a home made pole away from electrics (like a nazza) to see if it  makes any difference to auto flights and slowed down the return speed
as watching some other vids on u tube I  may have panicked to quickly as others have had same  after the dip it levels out then descends (more a problem of being to close when rtl selected and speed of return)
So i will try again with the changes and see what happens

How is it in yaw when loitering? Does it dip? I know my hexacopter is pretty odd when entering RTL, as when it yaws (to point back to home), it drifts off (a problem I';ve yet to solve) - so its quite alarming. However, once its flying back, its fine. I think it would be better without the yaw, which is possible now (WP_YAW_BEHAVIOR == 2 - look at waypoint except RTL).

Yet to try on the reptile - job for tomorrow....

firey1

that was my first ever attempt Rick
my yaw in loiter seems ok just a twitch to the right sometimes

on the yaw turn on that RTL it seemed clean with no dip
it only dipped when it arrived back to the launch point  (scary seeing yourself zooming in with fpv lol)
