I just wondering what are the functions of these two, the one with RED SQUARE BOX on top of the mission planner. please enlighten me about these two features.
The one on the top left, ( with the concentric circles) gives the Wind speed and direction during flight. Like this:
Not sure what the flat rectangle is for though. Perhaps someone else can chime in
The long box is a graphical progression of a mission.
there will be a number inside the long box,what the number represent??
Well, I was going to say either total distance flown or distance to next waypoint but running a mission in SITL shows the bar not updating as expected nor does the number make sense. I haven't had a close look during a live mission so am unable to say that it works as expected.
The newest version of Mission Planner v1.3.50 fixes this problem of rendering in the long box. The number is the elapsed distance of the actual mission.
well, that's better. anyway cheers mate! really really appreciate the help
