This mode requires GPS. The vehicle must be armed before this mode can be engaged. This mode is automatic - no user intervention is required to control the vehicle. RC control switches can be used to change flight modes on any vehicle. RC stick movement in a multicopter (or VTOL in multicopter mode) will by default change the vehicle to Position mode unless handling a critical battery failsafe. The Failure Detector will automatically stop the engines if there is a problem on takeoff.
Takeoff is affected by the following parameters:
|MIS_TAKEOFF_ALT||起飞期间的目标高度 (默认值: 2.5 米)|
|MPC_TKO_SPEED||上升速度 (默认值: 1.5 m/s)|
|COM_RC_OVERRIDE||If enabled, stick movement on a multicopter (or VTOL in multicopter mode) gives control back to the pilot in Position mode (except when vehicle is handling a critical battery failsafe). This can be separately enabled for auto modes and for offboard mode, and is enabled in auto modes by default.|
The aircraft takes off in the current direction using either catapult/hand-launch mode or runway takeoff mode. The mode defaults to catapult/hand launch, but can be set to runway takeoff using RWTO_TKOFF. RC stick movement is ignored in both cases.
In catapult/hand launch mode the vehicle waits to detect launch (based on acceleration trigger). On launch it ramps up to full throttle (RWTO_MAX_THR) in about 2 seconds and then performs a full throttle climbout, with minimum 10 degree takeoff pitch. Once it reaches FW_CLMBOUT_DIFF it will transition to Hold mode and loiter.
The runway takeoff mode has the following phases:
- Throttle ramp: Clamped to the runway (pitch fixed, no roll, and heading hold) until reach the minimum airspeed for takeoff (FW_AIRSPD_MIN x RWTO_AIRSPD_SCL).
- 起飞：增加俯仰直到飞机高度>导航高度（ RWTO_NAV_ALT ）。
- 爬出：爬升至地面以上的高度> FW_CLMBOUT_DIFF 。 在此阶段中, 将移除滚转和航向限制。
Takeoff is affected by the following parameters:高于地平面（AGL）的高度，留有足够的离地间隙以允许一些滚转。 在达到
RWTO_NAV_ALT之前，飞机保持水平，并且仅使用方向舵来保持航向（参见 </ 1> RWTO_HDG ）。 如果
FW_CLMBOUT_DIFF > 0，则应低于
FW_CLMBOUT_DIFF 。</td> </tr> </tbody> </table>
VTOLs default to MC mode on boot, and it is generally expected that they will take off in multicopter mode (and also safer).
That said, if transitioned to Fixed wing before takeoff, they will takeoff in Fixed Wing mode.
