I don’t seem to find any info on flaps and landing gear in autonomous flight. If the plane has auto-landing in the mission does it use flaps during the approach and also can it extend the retracting landing gear for the landing at some height or distance from the spot?
If not is there implemented MAV commands this I can program in the mission?
The same is true if I use parachute for landing. There is no info I can find. Is there implemented MAV command for the parachute?
I can tell you that flaps are supported for fw auto landings. They are applied after passing the last waypoint before landing. I’m writing a guide for fw takeoff and landing at the moment (it’s in a google doc). I could share this with you if you like.
@dagar Thanks for your Reply. I only own MC so this should be fine.
Still there is no Hint in the Docu or QGC how to use this feature. Where/How would I connect the Gear? I thought I would have to assign a RC Channel as input for the Gear Command and then there would be an AUX to assign for the Gear Controller? I was not able to find any of the above and also no Config Param for this…
@Andreas_Hoffmann you need to add it to your mixer. Control group 0, index 7 is for landing gear.
Then you need to assign the param RC_MAP_GEAR_SW. If it’s not in the regular mode configuration page in QGC you should open an issue and ask for it to be added. For now you’ll probably have to look in the full parameter tree.
Could you help update the documentation for this kind of thing? Even a few rough notes in the right place can be extremely helpful.
