RC AIRCRAFT FLYING Flying @ “The Field” Flying @ the Field 2022 Another perfect Saturday Fly-In @ the Field Reply To: Another perfect Saturday Fly-In @ the Field


Great videos everyone. Mike, the video from the Excalibur is very stable and Gerald, I love your slow-mo during the dramatic bits.

Here are two videos with lots of picture-in-picture so you get to see everything that’s going on.  Overall, I think the autonomous experiment did what it was meant to do.  There might be a bit of fine tuning regarding how close the aircraft needs to get to the waypoint before it triggers.  Also, I did notice that when I flew the Chaser without autopilot, it did tend to go left and they may have caused the left drift on landings along with a bit of cross wind.

Auto take-off, three waypoints and auto landing…

Auto take-off, grid search and auto landing…  Thanks to Mike for giving me permission to use some of his footage.
