I am working with Ardupilot APM 2.6 and mission planner trying to get a simple, basic test flight accomplished without an RC Controller. I realize autonomous flight without radio control is dangerous, which is why I only want to do this for a basic test flight.
I've set up a basic flight plan: take off, hover at 1 m for 2 seconds, and land, but this does not seem to be working. We can arm the motors, but Mission Planner does not seem to let the quad take off without radio control enabled. Does anyone have any suggestions regarding flying without a radio controller? I've seen a number of videos and posts online regarding people who have accomplished this but cannot seem to accomplish the same.
Thanks in advance!
