I am using SITL with a new aircraft model I defined with xml files used in Jsbsim. The aircraft is perfectly controllable in manual mode in FlighGear with an external transmitter control through the Mission Planner. However when I switch to auto mode I get compass and accelerator errors all over the place and the airplane behaves chaotically - it can not follow the watpoints.
Does STIL require compass and accelerometer calibrations? But how, there is nothing physical in hand - it is all software! In any case while flying I was able to calibrate the accelerometer and the compass. But nothing has improved. Is this a bug or some error in my param file? I am puzzled, any hint would be invaluable.
