I’ve been having some problems with auto mode on the edge of my transmitter range - Reading the logs tell me that the RC channels play a bit on the edge of the range, and that causes the quad to go back to stabilize.
The Auto Mode wiki page (http://copter.ardupilot.com/wiki/auto-mode/) clearly says:
But it seems that this is not the case - My controls still work in auto mode, Specifically - The throttle jumps from minimum to 50% (receiver lost sync), then to minimum again (receiver re-syncs), followed by a mode change from Auto to Stabilize, followed by me running to get my quad from far far away.
I know that I need to configure my receiver properly and I intend to do so and to get one with RSSI while I’m at it - But is this normal behavior? Is the wiki page simply outdated?
I’m using Droid Planner to configure and start the mission.
