Plane Commands in Guided Mode


Trying to send commandInt (through ROS-mavros) in Guided mode.

According to this link: Plane Commands in Guided Mode — Dev documentation (, we need to send MAV_CMD_NAV_WAYPOINT, encoded with “current = 2”.

When trying this, the respond from the simulation is “Got COMMAND_ACK: NAV_WAYPOINT: UNSUPPORTED”. See the picture below.

Any suggestions on why this is not working?

Are there other ways to control a Plane in guided mode with MAVROS?
We don’t want to use the AUTO mode, because the fixed-wing needs get updated directional commands with a frequency of eg. 5 Hz.
