I have been having trouble understanding how one is able to setup a camera to trigger autonomously through Mission Planner’s flight plan.
I am able to use the TRIGGER NOW command successfully, as well as write a single line flight plane to trigger the camera no more than once i.e. DO_SET_RELAY, DO_REPEAT_RELAY, DO_DIGICAM_CONFIG, etc.
I have tried these commands creating a Polygon shaped waypath, as well as stand alone commands. wrote them to the autopilot, started/ran the mission, and either 1: get no activity from the camera or the mission planner app, or 2: one single trigger occurs then the flight is Returned to Launch by default.
The camera that I am using for my project is a Sony A7R2. It is currently programmed as a relay on my Pixhawk cube, and is triggering sucessfully using the Trigger NOW command.
My main goal for this project is to write a flight plan to my autopilot that will allow the camera to be triggered in short time intervals throughout a flight mission. The camera/pixhawk system will be attached to an aircraft and be its own separate system. I literally just need the camera to be programmed to trigger automatically via Mission Planner flight plan.
I thought I could program the pixhawk to send a continuous pulse to the cam trigger but any DO command in the flight planner only ever triggers the camera once then ends the flight mission.
I have looked through all forums/articles/videos and have not been successful in finding a possible solution to my problem.
If anyone could give me some advice on how I could set up the flight plan correctly to get continous triggers, I would be extremely grateful!!!
Many thanks in advance!
