m500 Autonomous Flight
Moderator last edited by
We've purchased a VOXL m500 kit recently, and I've been looking at the getting started documentation for it and I'm not seeing a lot of information on how to get up and running in autonomous mode. I see the steps to get to first and second flight, all with an RC radio. I did see some demos on the youtube channel, like the one here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lj1EZ_eTGPI&ab_channel=ModalAI. I'm hoping to replicate this. I also took a look at the some of the content on the VOXL Flight and VOXL Flight Deck sections to get some insight, but still unclear if I need to purchase an RC radio to get started on my development. Thanks in advance for any insight you can provide. I'm relatively new to this whole platform.

Have you looked at this document?

I will try those steps ASAP. It looks like the RC radio is more of a nice-to-have failsafe in this mode, is that accurate? Thanks for the tip
@Developer-Evaluation Exactly. If you're using an alternate data link for motor control such as LTE or Microhard the RC radio is purely for safety purposes.
