Greetings esteemed UAV-ers...I'm running an APM2.5 board in a ParkZone Radian (3 controls - throttle/rudder/elevator).My initial manual flights were successful, including running in Stabilize and Loiter Modes (using my Spektrum DX7s 3-position flap toggle). The logical NEXT step toward full automation is manually operating the plane, but monitoring the telemetry coming from the plane (the APM2.5 module) via telemetry into the my USB antenna into my laptop running APM Mission Planner…See More

"To right click somewhere on the map and "Set Home Position Here" is something is really needed. Where I boot up and do my checks is not where I want the return to launch to be, as that position is right above the cars/laptop/my head."

My cloned repository is named "markevogt-pcl-experimenting".

My first enhancements have now been coded, tested and pushed up to my repo:
