Please help me with APM planner.
I have APM with 2.012 fw + magnetometer installed. In mission planner (0.4.19) had set 8 WPs with default alt set to 100m.
First interresting point here is - I can't let home location alt set to 0, there is still nag message:
Questtion is - must i set the home alt? I thought the home position here is not relevant, because it is set during APM startup - on the GPS lock. Then the home alt should be always absolute (to locked GPS alt) and all WPS then relative to this altitude. Why must i set this home alt?
This weird planning i can see only in Planner MAVLINK in planner 1.0x it is simple.
Please can somebody clear this MAVLINK planning form me?
- what is here absolute alt checkbox
- why the home alt must be set
- is this home alt absolute or relitive to locked GPS alt
- what is the relation between home alt and WPs altitudes
Today i tried some flights with APM 2.012 and with no success. The only valuable result was with sabilization mode. Auto mode started descend to ground and withouth my intervention aircraft would hit the ground.Even the RTL descended to ground.
Therefore i suspect something wrong in planning. Please help me understand this MAVLINK planner.
