Autonomous collective pumping 4 U

Not exactly pumping collective but definitely changing altitude. In the deadest air in the universe, she did 2 ascents to 145m & 2 descents to 135m perfectly in 3.5 minutes. .5 m/s is definitely the descending limit before vortex ring state. Note since the satisfy radius is 5m, the waypoints are 150m & 130m and she never reaches them except after completion.

The strange thing with these tests is in real life the waypoints R nothing but empty space & she's dialing in positions in empty space which no human can quite grasp. To the satellite network the points exist as definitely as rock.

The hovers were running so well, decided to try to get the moon in the same shot again. The trick with the night shots is the moon blows away all artificial lighting. That means U need to hover as close to the camera as possible to get enough light on the copter & stop all the way down to begin to get some detail in the moon. It's autonomous guillotine flying at its best. Definitely need to try some daylight moon shots.
