I am interested in carp fishing and start a new project to create a bait boat 3d printed.
The purpose of this boat to take the bait to a few GPS points choose by sonar data, store those points for feature use and RTL. When the boat arrives at some point it should be open bait container and after that continue to the next GPS point to release another container or return home. All navigation should be made from RC and not from Mission Planner or another application. Because I just have two different devices(Remote controller and sonar) that I need to hold in the hands for navigation and I don’t want to add the third device like a tablet or something else to make autopilot possible.
I want to be able to save GPS points though RC and choose the desired GPS point from the RC menu to navigate autopilot to this point. I read the guide and this forum and understand what to make manual navigation it is not a problem for the skid-steering boat but I have an open question about saving waypoints (GPS points) by RC and activate autopilot from RC too. All autopilot examples use an application like Mission Planner, etc. which is redundant in my case. Maybe ardupilot not suitable for my purposes? Any ideas about how to implement it?
Thanks for reading
