That's really cool, but it seems like a Yaw waggle not a pitch issue ?

 Yep, agree....Its like a happy little puppy dog.....wag...wag...wag...:)

 A fast little puppy...

Hi Guys,

I recently posted a vid of a flight in Scotland which went pear shaped after my goggles packed in. 

I finally got a chance last night to sit down and investigate and it seems to be a problem
with the updated DVR module in my Dominator v2's.....

Here's a vid of the  problem,  any thoughts are much appreciated.

Awesome, that worked really well! Got to be chuffed with that!

 Cheers m8, yes...it's pretty good isn't it..? Considering RTL appears to work just fine on my very first attempt with iNAV.

 I think the code for RTL was written with a FPV Pilot sat next to him telling him exactly how RTL should work....RTL is without doubt THE most important Mode.
  On my very first flight trying RTL, it worked so well I must have done it at least 6 or seven times, all worked like clockwork. It really builds your confidence once you know you have RTL as a backup anyway. Not bad at all for a 36 Autopilot....lol.

That's awesome, so it calculates the descent rate to get back to your RTH altitude right at the point where it starts to loiter? Nice!

Infinitely preferable to what the Tornado does which is either stay at the RTH altitude, or dive/climb THEN turn for home lol.

  Hi Steve,
                  I need to try RTL some more times from further out to confirm its doing what we think it is, but it looks like it's doing exactly what you said, which suits me fine..:)

 2 Scenarios:

1. You engage RTL when you are below 100 mtrs, the plane throttles up and climbs briefly to 100 mtrs as it turns 180 degrees and heads for Home. Once at 100 mtrs it cruises all the way at this altitude until it reaches the launch point or Home where it then engages a Loiter (That also works BTW)

2. You engage RTL when considerably higher than 100 mtrs (and further out maybe) and iNAV flies down a 3D trajectory calculated by the GPS and arriving over the Home Point just as 100 mtrs shows up on the Altimeter....great, I like that...:)

 Not sure what would happen if you engaged RTL say only 600 mtrs out and say 300 mtrs up, BUT...You can limit the descent rate inside iNAV. Im guessing it will Loiter over the Home point gradually descending until it hits 100 mtrs?

 There are a few options inside iNAV about how you want RTL to happen, but even I managed to understand it....lol.

  Apart from the modest price and iNAV, it's the small form factor that I find attractive as you dont need a very large model to explore say a 6 km radius with a full blown AP..... Works for me...:)

VR is displaying two images, one over the top of the other.  When you put on a VR headset it's not a widescreen image but pretty much a big square.  I just don't see any logic behind adopting widescreen for our application *except* perhaps for when the main purpose for your FPV view is just to serve as a viewfinder for some footage you are shooting which will be presented widescreen.

VR dosent need to be widescreen as each eye sees a horizontally separated perspective anyway. Providing that vertical fov is equal, looking at a single screen with two eyes, it's best to make use of the extra horizontal peripheral vision. For fatshark style goggles the point is moot as each eye is seeing the same 4:3 image.

  Today I tested the Falcon using the Omnibus F4 loaded with iNAV....Having got the Falcon trimmed out and stable in Horizon Mode, the second flight Today and a few others were dedicated to testing the RTL function.

  Have to say, I was very impressed with the way iNAV handles RTL.
   Keep in mind that the specified RTL Altitude was set to 100 mtrs and that iNAV controls the throttle and all other controls during RTL.
  Suggest keeping a little sound on so you can hear the throttle being used by iNAV during RTL phase....Skip to 5:00 for the best RTL Demo if you dont want to watch all of it...:)

  Conclusion..?...It works better than I could ever have hoped for considering the very modest outlay....Keep a close eye on the Altitude control during the RTL phase, still a bit gobsmacked TBH....:)
