In this case, the channel that controls the mode is the 8, so according to its value the mode is changed. With an event of type Variable the automation is defined. The process is the same for the manual mode, but when the r8 variable has a value lower than 0.25.

Automatic Landing (multicopters)

If the user wants the multicopter stops the motors when landed (pass to Standby automatically), it is possible to configure an automation which performs this action.

Normally, to control the automatic landing, the following variables are used:

  • Ground Speed Down
  • AGL (Above ground level altitude)
  • Thrust control
  • Landing current phase

Variable values must be chosen depending on multicopter (rotor number, dimensions, altitude sensors, etc…) and an integral control increase can be taken into account in order to perform a faster RPM descending and a better landing.
