I want to fly a drone on what I’ll call “micro-missions” for which QGC’s standard finger-pointing planning approach is somewhat ponderous. As an example, I want to photograph an 8-footW by 24-footL x 6-footH volume sitting on the surface. Something like using a camera’s macro mode for extreme closeups.
If I try to do this on my smartphone’s interface, the most extreme zoom setting still does not show enough detail, and my finger obscures the whole volume.
I’m hoping for something more precise.
I’m guessing that I could take any similar mission’s .plan file, edit its parameters to smaller values, save it out as my new micro-mission into the same folder/directory where the original was found, open it in QGC and load it into the quad and fly it.
I would appreciate comments. Thank you.
