Q8: Does the memory card need to be taken out when connecting SUI04 to the flight controller?

A:  Yes for MINIPIX and TURBOPIX but no for PIXHAWK. Please take out the memory card when using MINIPIX and TURBOPIX with SUI04.


Q9: Can the obstacle avoidance function be activated when setting flight mode as Alt-Hold?

A: Never switch to Alt-Hlod Mode when using the obstacle function. Because at Alt-Hlod Mode, aircraft will keep flying with the commande from the transmitter even obstacle is around and won't stop.  Only when the Loiter Mode is on, aircraft will stop automatically when obstacle confronted, no matter how far the joysticks are toggled. Thus, it's strongly advised to set flight mode as Loiter if avoidance function activated.
