Mission Planner Script Load a Waypoint File

Hi everyone!
I’m working on a script in Mission Planner that will start a loaded waypoint file. This is supposed to run autonomously. So the script starts the ARM, throttles up, etc. (plus there’s a function to get control back to the pilot if necessary). But what I really want is to have the scripts arm and go to a certain height and then switch over to the loaded waypoint file.

  1. From what I understand, when you start running the script, it needs to talk to the ground station to work properly. It’s not saved onto the PIXHAWK, right?

  2. Is there a way to run the waypoint file (or some other loaded file from the PIXHAWK) using the script which wouldn’t involve writing the waypoint file into the script?

Thank you!
