I recently upgraded to Mission Planner 1.2.59 and am struggling with it and considering down-grading. I didn’t see a forum for the Mission Planner software, and since I’m running the APM2.5 with Rover 1.42beta3 (modified: https://github.com/jsmith-coas/ARV.git) code I figured I’d put it here.
Issue 1: The ‘Standard Params’ and "Advanced Params’ do not always show anything besides the two buttons at the top. MAVLink works, I can hit ‘Refresh Params’ and a pop-up shows which params are downloaded from the APM, but nothing displays in the window
Issue 2: The zoom level is ‘broken’ in the ‘Flight Plan’ window. It now zooms in/out in very small steps while in the ‘Flight Data’ window it still jumps by reasonable amounts when you click above/below the slider.
Issue 3: Why is there now an option in the ‘Download Logs’ pop-up requiring log type to be specified, and why doesn’t it remember prior choices when the program isn’t even restarted?
Question 1: Is there any way to write the waypoints out to a file on the computer? Mission Planner lets you read/write to the APM, but not to a file for later analysis from what I can tell. This would be helpful in comparing missions programmed via MP to what the APM actually did, or didn’t as the case sometimes is.
