Some other mission planners have a feature to drag out a square/rectangle on the map and have the planning software automatically generate strips of waypoints to cover that entire area, particularly useful for aerial photography. Closest thing I could find in the current Mission Planner software was the Grid feature which allows you to draw a polygon one waypoint at a time. Did I overlook a similar feature in Mission Planner? Any Ideas? Similar to the Create Waypoint Circle feature.
Update: See first comment, thanks Kevin
It's a feature of Mission Planner. Just use the Flight Planner. Right click and select Draw Polygon. When finished, click the grid button at the bottom. Then you define the spacing and angle for the flight lines. Make sure you have a home elevation set or you get a error message for every way point.
you sir have helped me tremendously, could not find any documentation that explains that. So easy!
