Is it possible for the APM to perform Orbit Mode like the AutoQuad. I found it really useful especially for AP/Video to do a 360 around the point of interest while keeping camera pointed to it. Is there any source code for it?
I believe that's what "Circle" does. Although mine's in a plane and circle doesn't work for planes. :)
Thanks Eddie, will try the CIRCLE mode soon
Any luck using circle mode for 360 rotation?
What radius do you use? Is the loiter radius or a separate radius? What is the parameter name?
And what is the best speed you did find? Speed parameter name?
i have the same questions, did you find any answers??
see below on the file, the script I am using for 360 rotation.
also on the link below is some result...
hope it helps.
let me know if yo find some improvement.
I believe my answer below is not referring to Orbit mode, just 360 loiter.
I am interested to have also details about Orbit, if you have,
This is the result of my Circle Mode. Start from minute 6.00 of these video .It performed a very smooth low alt Circle/Orbit.Set Wp Radius to 10m.
I did an substitute of an orbit mode scripting a few waypoints around the circle and put the ROI command after first WP with a ROI point in the middle of the circle. More or less it works...
