Thanks Felix,

I have looked more closely at the logs and I think the plane drops because the airspeed drops when transitioning to the STANDBY block (see screenshot).

Gautier or Christophe any suggestion on how to avoid this behavior?

Hi Joseph,

to be honest I don't know much about the energy control loop and I haven't been flying fixedwings in a long time...
So maybe Gautier or Christophe can help out here?

Cheers, Felix

Hi everyone,

I am having some issues with my take off since I switch to the energyadaptative control loop.
I take off in automatic using the following:

<block group="home" key="R" name="AUTOTAKEOFF" strip_button="AutoTakeoff">
      <exception cond="GetPosAlt() > ground_alt+15" deroute="climb"/>
      <set value="0" var="kill_throttle"/>
      <set value="0" var="autopilot_flight_time"/>
      <attitude pitch="45" roll="0" throttle="1" vmode="throttle"/>
    <block group="home" key="R" name="climb">
      <exception cond="GetPosAlt() > ground_alt+50" deroute="Standby"/>
      <attitude pitch="35" roll="0" throttle="0.70" vmode="throttle"/>
    <block group="home" key="Ctrl+a" name="Standby" strip_button="Standby" strip_icon="home.png">
      <circle radius="nav_radius" wp="STDBY"/>

When the AP switch to standby, the plane drops from the sky and catches up quickly and the rest of the flight is normal. I'm using umarim lite 2.0 on a fixed delta wing with v5.4.2_stable-3-gc8d866b-dirty and I attached my last flight log.
