I’ve been digging for days researching this, and on diydrones I found this quote but have not been able to find any more details on it:
apm planner support a very simple guided mode function mode via www.
this will send a guided mode wp to the connected mav.
This would be perfect for me but I don’t know if it even works anymore since that was in a post from three years ago, and I haven’t seen much more about it.
Basically what I am trying to accomplish is to send new waypoints to APM Planner either by a python script or posting it to a url. Its effectively a follow me scenario, and I have the Latitude, Longitude and Altitude of where I want the drone (custom drone with pixhawk connected to the APM via 3DR telemetry radios) to go.
So as I move, I will continue to give the drone new wp co-ordinates and the drone should keep moving to the new waypoints.
Does this feature or function ring a bell to anyone? Is there a documentation that I’m missing somewhere that describes how to accomplish this?
