Hey guys, any chance I can get ControlApi.getApi(drone).manualControl(...) working without an RC connected? I've configured ArduCopter SITL, removed all the failsafes, as well as calling manualControl inside of the callback in ControlApi.getApi(drone).enableManualControl(...) but the drone doesn't move, just stay still in the air... I've read that the rc-override is needed in older versions, but I have APM:Copter V3.4-dev (cc24f323) so in theory it should work.

Just to add something, the only thing I can get working is ControlApi.getApi(drone).turnTo(...) but manualControl(...) still no response, trying with Tower branch virtual_joystick seems like .manualControl(...) doesn't work neither. Could be an issue with the Copter version?
