    Thanks for the info!
    Could you tell me how to set up the transmitter/receiver so the ALTA know when LOS happens?

    The only thing that you can do is to set the fail safe position properly. This means:
    Controls - Neutral
    Mode - Position
    RTH - On

    But this is like you'll flip it manually. The synapse cannot detect LOS from a PPM signal currently....

    This is how it works now.
    If PPM with LOS isn't working than I will add this to the list which I will send to Freefly to work on. :)

    Sent a request with all these problems to Freefly, looking forward to see what they think.

    Perfect.
    I would additionally recommend you to insert a short delay of 3 seconds between
    Mode -Position

    And
    RTH-On

    Adam/Jan: I think that you will find that the Autoland will kick in when the battery gets low -- so on LOS the ALTA will execute RTH, hover, and keep hovering until a low battery condition occurs -- at which point it will Autoland at the home position.

    Regarding the inability to fly above 118 m in PH, I know FF got the message, but I'm not sure what action is being taken (I'm a volunteer moderator, not an FF employee).

    Andy.

    Sorry, I posted above without seeing this: It does work...but it works differently from the way we thought it did....the extended hover is the difference when you're running with a PPM-based Tx/Rx like the Graupner.
