How to activate Throw mode? I uploaded 3.4 beta and want to go outside and test it
I’ll come up with a wiki page certainly before the official release. Until then the instructions are in this video.
- disarm copter
- switch to throw mode
- check GPS light is green
- arm copter and listen for ready tune
- throw vehicle up and away from you (it must climb by 50cm/s and reach a total speed of 5m/s)
- once the vehicle has stopped, switch the flight mode to Loiter (or other mode) to retake manual control
Thank you, Randy. I saw the description below video later. Sorry for my mistake. Beta firmware uploaded. I’ll try it soon.
So when arming in TM the code plays that specific 3 tone chime AND the motors don’t spin slowly like they do when arming normally is that correct?
Old thread but I’ve added throw mode to the wiki now: http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/throw-mode.html#throw-mode
