Adding a line below without clicking on the map will add a empty line, which doesn’t hold “valid” LAT, en LON information
LAT en LON is zero which indicates a location somewhere in the sea before Africa…
Usually you plan your mission from the GPS location of your Drone.
If you link up with Missionplanner (the drone) than the GPS coordinates will be used to create a MAP on the Mission page.
On this map you can create the Waypoint by clicking Waypoint markers.
The Add Below function is typically used for non Waypoint coordinate specific commands like Takeoff, Land, conditionals, etc. If “Waypoint” is the command it will enter 0,0 for Lat/Long putting it in the South Atlantic off the coast of Africa where that coordinate is located.
Paul-No, RTL to 0 altitude is fine if your intention is to land where you armed and established home. I fly one way missions on occasion which require a Land command at a waypoint other than home so I typically just use that same strategy for any Mission. Also, the action for RTL is driven by other parameters which can be a consideration for how you want to end your mission.
I am not having any luck adding anything “Below” except a waypoint.
I don’t see any way to change the command before hand.
When I do click “Add Below” I get a WP near Africa like Erik. How to stop this?
My first leg is always dashed and my last leg is always dashed, how to stop this as well??
It adds “Waypoint” as default, just change it to whatever function you are trying to add with the pull down menu. Select Waypoints by clicking on the map. For other functions (Land, Takeoff, Do commands, etc) use “Add below” and then change it from “Waypoint” to the command you want.
