Dear PX4 team,
I am using Pixhawk/PX4 for my quadcopter. Currently I am testing the ekf2 enabled firmware of the latest stable branch. Regarding this, I have a couple of questions:
1) I realized, that arming and launching the copter is not possible in position control mode? I need to start the motors in stabilized mode and then switch to assisted mode (altitude or position control) afterwards. What is the reason for this? I would really like to use the copter in position control mode from the very beginning!
2) When landing in assisted mode, I often have problems to stop/disarm the motors. Sometimes, I need to put the throttle low for a very long time, before the motors stop. It also happened a couple of times (especially in position control mode), that the copter almost flipped around on the ground? Could a badly configured/working landing detector be the reason?
Many thanks for your help!
