I have spent hundred of hours with Arduplane and simply it is unable to perform even simple tasks , Lidar use is not allowed and TECS has a lot of flaws .
Deep stall landing is useless since there is any information about how to configure the deep stall parameters, and that since a while, evidently it is not a priority .
My goal was to perform a very short landing, no way…
Finally I think that the only solution to obtain professional results is to modify the code and keep for itself the work done , I have the feeling that very few people share his knowledge and developers usually just do not answer to requests.
A lot of energy of developpers went into quadplanes, totally inefficient solution since no variable pitch props are available while there are huge problems and bugs on ordinary things such Ek2 or Tecs.
Debugging is a nightmare since if you repeat 4 times the same mission you probably obtain three different behaviors.
Having said that there is nothing to be expected since you are not paying anything and you can only thank those who have dedicated time and energy to the project but unfortunately it is certainly not at the level of Arducopter.
I’m tired, disappointed and quite pissed off so I will take a break since I have the feeling to just loosing time and money with Arduplane.
