Mission Planner with arducopter in mission flights
It´s know the barometer has certain drift that could be between 5 and 15 meters so long as the fligh time flows. Also, when doing long missions 30 to 60 mins the barometric conditions may change and so will the real altitude vs the displayed one.
If there is no option to land in midflight to reset the baro altitude, which one is the best way to adjust the flying altitude? .
I need to do long flights at 20 meters altitude only and the possible drift is 50% of this margin. It´s easy for me to see from the fpv cam images when the altitude has been changed beyond an acceptable ammount and a correction is required but no idea about the best way to do it. Options:
- While flying the mission, simply change the altitude of the remaining waypoints and upload the mission again? (no idea what will the copter do : accept, crash, reject … )
- Pause the mission, modify the altitude of the remaining waypoints , upload the mission and resume the flight? (will the copter accept it and having the default MISSION RESTART value will it resume the mission or will it start from wp1 because it consideers that like a new mission)
- Add a negative value on the Altitude Offset field to slowly correct it according with the visual references in flight.
- Any other option you can suggest?
