Throw Mode using Arduino

Can I use my Arduino to start up Throw Mode on the Pixhawk? I don’t want to use a GCS. Otherwise, what can I do to get my drone to start up after it’s been dropped? Thanks!

Edit: It does say this “This is a complete list of the parameters which can be set (e.g. via the MAVLink protocol) to control vehicle behaviour. They are stored in persistent storage on the vehicle.” here

However, I don’t understand how this would work since Arducopter would be loaded onto the Pixhawk and the Arduino can only use MAVLink to communicate to the Pixhawk. Would I need to also load Arducopter on the Arduino?

why not put it on a transmitter switch?

Sorry - I’m new to this. How would I go about doing that?

Or put it on its own switch using RCx_OPTION parameters (might still be ch7_opts, ch8_opts if your not on latest)

Doesn’t this require a GCS though? Is there any way to go about it without using Mission Planner/QGroundControl?

well you need a gcs to set the parameters in the first place obviously. After that you only need your standard RC transmitter.

Alright, thanks. I’ll try it.
