Return to home
Like most available flight controllers with GPS, the AutoQuad has a return to home function.
The home position is determined on the first position hold or when the set home position switch is utilized. The home position stores the longitude and altitude position and the current altitude.
Warning! When you set the home point on the ground the copter will hit it when you engage RTH!
If the first position hold was engaged on +2 meters, returning to home will be done at +2 meters. If you fly in an area with a lot of vertical obstacles it is probably best to set the home position on an altitude above the obstacles.
- Arm the AutoQuad
- Wait for a solid GPS lock (blue led lid solid)
- Take off and fly
- Enter position hold on the required altitude or hit the set home position switch.
- Fly a couple of meters away from that point.
- Enter position hold (or keep still)
- Switch to return to home
The copter should now fly to the home position in a straight line with a speed set in the parameters (default 6 m/s), slowing down on approach and ending up at the altitude that was recorded during the set home position
