I am experimenting with adjustments to improve ground steering in Plane during auto takeoff, and I’m struggling to get it optimized. it’s a very tricky thing. I have reduced THR_MAX to 45%, which is just below the point where the plane can take off, and activate auto takeoff. the plane races down the field, but can’t quite lift off. I observe how accurately it holds a straight heading, and make adjustment to improve it. But I wish there was an autotune for ground steering, much like autotune in flight, where I could steer it wildly around the field and it would learn its ideal settings.
Ideally, the end result is dead-straight auto takeoffs, both while gaining speed on the runway and during takeoff and climb, such that I can safely takeoff from a narrow runway with trees on either side.
