Autopilot setting absolute

should the autopilot setting asolute should work?
I tried this here at home. When setting the pilot to absolute (and set the gains) I got no reaction of the actuator when moving the IMU.
Before I investigate this deeper I want to know if this function is implemented yet.

I use the latest tinypilotimage.

Best regards

I tested it last Sunday briefly and it did not work...
unfortunately this pilot has not seen much testing so I don't expect it to work yet... This pilot requires rudder feedback as well

@Onno: @Sean: thanks for your replies.
Rudderfeedback was connected (and calibrated).
So I think it´s not a special problem of my setup.

Best regards

Ok that is actually good news  Big Grin then we have possible use for our rudderfeedback!
Yes I also had rudderfeedback connected and calibrated, we will ad this to our issue list!
so far rudder feedback is always used for end limits to avoid stress on the system, and also to output the rudder angle to nmea and signalk.

the absolute pilot is a basic attempt at a PID filter which incorporates the rudder feedback. I suspect up to 10-15% improvement over the basic pilot so in many cases it may not be possible to notice the difference, but as you can see I implemented this some time ago and never managed to test it (too many other things to test) It could be especially useful if there is a lot of weather helm.. will be interesting to see.
