Fun with DF logs, APM Planner2 KML and Google Earth


(Mark Whitehorn) #1



Goggle Earth can animate a flightpath using a feature called “tours”, and that might prove useful for log analysis.

Example KMZ file is here: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1DXqYigl2Eek_ZoIoXqK3eNfPJBOrbrEU

To view it yourself using Google Earth:
Download the file and open it in Google Earth, set the touring options as shown below:

then select the “tour” named maneuvers (leave the checkboxes as they were) and click the “play tour” button at the bottom of the “Places” sidebar:

Also, clicking on the flightpath will pop up info including RPY angles, AOA, and speeds (exported at 5Hz):
