More tablet control

Operator directed autopilot (3 min 20 sec)

Got the last of the features on the tablet which were last done on the RC transmitter, years ago. Manely manual position control in autopilot mode. Rediscovered the ages old problem where velocity & direction can't be changed if a move is already in progress. It would have to stop moving & recalculate a new starting position of a new line to fly.

It was all part of a plan to make it fly in straight lines. Merely setting fixed velocities didn't make it fly in a straight line. It would need a much larger flying area for changing velocity to be practical. The war on straight lines was a long battle in 2008, comprising many blog posts.

As the tablet interface evolves, it's very confusing, with separate inputs for manual mode & autopilot mode.

There is a desire to do the same manual control with the monocopter & the ladybird, convert something big enough to fly a camera.
