A much better test at last. The 5th channel is assigned to the compensation, which is the level of impact from the sensor to the nozzles.

No wind this afternoon. So, the purpose of the test is to...

I never thought building an altitude hold system with a sonar would be this hard… I wanted to build the “simple” sonar altitude hold to be able to test the “hard” IR scanner better. I ended up...
