The baro. is only there for attitude hold.
Making use of it for altitude should be taken with a grain of salt.
MSL would require additional sensors, and/or the input of ambient conditions, or known field elevation.
Phantoms are RTFs for 'everyone'.
What your after can be achieved but not with this platform.
Really? I thought it was just there to keep a more stable flight at low levels. Would it follow a slope at the same level?Just make sure you have the VPS turned off being when its on its supposed to follow the contour of the ground and it would want to drop down if you suddenly flew over the cliff and then not at the same height away from the ground.
I plan on doing some flying in the canyons of Utah. If altitude is set at a default of 400', what happens if I am on top of a canyon and fly my Phantom 3 off a 500' cliff?
Just make sure that by the time you reached the cliff the battery was as low as it can get. It will drop to the bottom very quickly.Here is something to ponder....
"What if" you are located 2000 feet away from the cliff edge ?
You want to fly out to the cliff edge and then drop all the way down to the cliff bottom.
How can you accomplish that flight ???
