  1. I have a feature suggestion/request for aircraft (I have in mind the VTOL's from Apex, but perhaps others too) — sufficiently advanced aircraft should be able to activate the "Autopilot Landing" feature on pilot (and co-pilot) death. The logic here is quite simple; this would save the passenger, cargo, and craft. Obviously this hasn't been necessary in the past, because the pilot of a moving aircraft is not going to be killed without the aircraft itself being damaged/destroyed. However, with Apex, we have VTOLs that have the ability to hover in place, and carry crew+cargo. It is now a plausible scenario that the pilot+gunner of the Y-32 be killed without destroying the vehicle — at this point, the Autopilot landing should kick in, rather than have a futuristic craft drop like a rock, which is the current behaviour - even if the autopilot landing is active when the crew is killed. It does not seem unreasonable that an advanced aircraft like this could monitor crew vitals, and if they flatline, prompt for input. If none is given, assume the crew is unresponsive, activate autopilot landing and RTB. I'm not sure how the autopilot landing functions exactly (I only became aware of it recently; never really used Arma jets before) but if it only lands the plane at the nearest airfield (my experience so far) it would be very cool from a mission-making perspective if a home base or preferred airfield could be defined for the unit. Otherwise you might get sniped over the AO only for the autopilot to land you right at the enemies doorstep. Perhaps a whitelist/blacklist for airfields per unit would both make sense. Or even more advanced, if you could define an onCrewDeath marker, so in the eventuality the dead man's switch is tripped, the craft returns to a certain marker, then performs an action (activate autopilot landing). So, thoughts? Should a similar function exist (perhaps simplified) for UAV's (darter, new NATO autonomous heli) when their UAV connection is lost (but perhaps not on operator death)? I imagine you could simply enter autohover and slowly descend, and hope that you're in a clear area for it to be recovered.
