I'm using android dronekit 2.6.6. and to fly drone i'm using this

ControlApi.getApi(drone).takeoff(2,null);

but drone is not flying at that point where i put the drone it's going towards another point. Is this because of the GPS Tracker present in the drone or i'm forgetting to set some thing??

@Tamajit this command instructs the drone to take off at an altitude of 2 meters. Is that not working?

@ne0fhyk it is working, but after take off drone is going to another location.

@Tamajit is it drifting to another direction, or deliberately heading toward a specific location?
After takeoff the drone stays in guided mode, which like loiter, uses the drone GPS to keep it steady
