    Just having fun.... if you watch the vids posted here you’ll see there’s a lot of RTH, 2DH, Heading Hold and WPT modes etc being used during the flight.
    Flying for 4+hrs manually is a big ask what the guys here (incl Tim) don’t want to see is flying blind with no live vid only going further because you’re in an “auto” mode.

    Hi, to clarify things. It shouldn‘t be in any WPT Mode for too long. Use of stabilization modes is fine. 2DH, Heading Hold, Altitude Hold is perfectly fine with me. What I don‘t like to see is someone is using WPT Mode all the time. That means he could launch the model and thereafter go to a cafe coming back 4 hours later and land the plane claiming his „record“.

    Thanks Tim. I'll count CRUISE as a WPT mode and will rather use FBW-B.

    Im confused now. Tim said cruise, 2dh and all of those are fine, correct? On a 2 plus hour flight sometimes you want to kick in heading hold on vector or cruise on ardupilot instead of fighting a crosswind, etc..

    That is not an automated mission, waypoints etc.. or excessive use of mission modes as far as im concerned.

    2DH on a Vector doesn’t take you to a waypoint so I would argue for this purpose that it does not count as “excessive automation”

    I´m not familiar with the ardupilot but all stabilization modes are fine like 2DH on a ET Vector. If you need to take a break it´s no problem to use a WPT Mode for a short while. I don´t like to see it for a whole flight or big portions of it.

    Thanks for the clarification. Thats the way i see it too.

    On arduplane, cruise mode is not a guided mode per se, it is altitude hold with leveling as well as heading and track hold.

    No waypoints are set or anything like that. It is virtually identical to vector 2dh.

    Added to my record, now 19.9 miles according to Vector. In reality, it was about 20.5 due to a gps sats lock loss and going wrong way for a bit. Probably had another few miles in her tank, but gps lock and weather forced my turnaround early. Goal was 25 miles.




    Very odd, the youtube video shows up on my browser, outside of tapatalk.

    Here is the video link:
