Perfect, nearly!

With a minor tweak to the u-blox NEO-M8T GPS receiver configuration, ‘H’ headed off in the right direction, making subtle changes of direction as she got closer to the pre-recorded GPS target point, and when within one meter, hovered briefly before landing. Only down side was the LiPo was at under 40% by then (it started at 48%), and that seems to be the point there’s not enough power for a stable descent, hence the very chaotic landing.

This is probably the last test for 2017 due both to the weather forecast and the chaos of Christmas.  See you all in the New Year – have a great holiday break!

P.S. The latest code has been updated on GitHub.

    • Thanks! To be honest, this is close to job done. There’s a few easy bits to add, but after that, pretty much everything else require significant software changes rather than new hardware / sensors. More on that in a post Christmas post.
