Throw Mode - Dropping


So I was wondering what the Pixhawk is looking for when it transitions from Throw mode to the next mode you set it to. I know when you throw the copter upwards, the vehicle must climb by 50cm/s and reach a total speed of 5m/s and the motors should start when the vehicle reaches the apex of its climb. What about when you drop the copter? Is it the same where the vehicle must fall by 50cm/s and reach a total speed of 5m/s? There is no apex so when do the motors start up?


the code is here

looks like it has to be in free fall and have dropped some distance.

Thank you so much! I’ll take a look.
