With only a Joystick at the ground station how then is a new aircraft "tuned"?

My understanding is you must set mechanically all the flight surfaces properly for stable flight before AUTO2 is possible. With only a joystick is it possible to fly a model in "manual" or AUTO1?

Hi Christophe,

this is currently not possible since the RC link is the a safety link which gets priority over the autopilot. The simplest way for you would be ... to get rid of the RC receiver. If you want to keep it, you will have to patch the lines in main_fbw.c from line 119 and 127, to disable the RC handling on the desired condition. We are working with Martin Mueller on a way to control the aircraft with a joystick connected to the ground station. It would provide a kind of AUTO1 mode inside AUTO2. Probably some news about it soon ...

Dear List,
We would like to disable any manual or auto1 mode when for instance when dist_from_home is larger than 500m. We have a lot of model aircraft clubs in the vicinity and absolutely want to avoid that a perfect auto2 flight is hijacked by accident. I was wondering if there is already an implementation that fits in a flight plan (exception cond="dist_from_home>500" set="mode" val="AUTO2") or if anyone is already using this kind of rule?
