Hi Development Team,
The soaring feature is not just for Gliders, it has an amazing potential for extending the range and flight time of all types of electric aircraft !!! Unfortunately, it does not seem to get the attention it deserves, for a couple reasons.
- Many users are just not aware of the feature.
- The feature does not soar in thermals correctly.
I have been flying RC gliders for many years, and could tell anyone willing to further develop the soaring feature how to make this feature work much much better. Most of the difficult programming work has already been done, and with some modifications it could easily be made to many times better. If anyone is interested, let me know and I will give you full details of how to make it find and stay in thermals much better than it does now.
