I am trying to test copter flight tests in auto mode multiple times.
I am using the default setup with the following guide (http://ardupilot.org/dev/docs/setting-up-sitl-on-linux.html)
However, I need to wait for the completion of the initialization step. (Until I saw “APM: EKF2 IMU0 is using GPS
APM: EKF2 IMU1 is using GPS” message)
Then, the following commands described in “http://ardupilot.org/dev/docs/copter-sitl-mavproxy-tutorial.html” works
- mode guided
- arm throttle
- takeoff 40
However, it takes too much time. (about 50 sec?)
So… is there any way to save initialization time?
Note that, if I don’t wait for “APM: EKF2 IMU0 is using GPS, APM: EKF2 IMU1 is using GPS” message
It shows “APM: PreArm: Need 3D Fix” message.
