Is there a set of shortcut / keyboard entries I can use to change modes in MP/AP - using the mouse is very slow going, especially if it is bright outside. I was hoping I could have a keyboard shortcut for RTL for example.

OK going crazy. I am sure this is a simple problem. I have downloaded Mission Planner and APM Planner to see what the shortcut keys are. 

Gut feeling is that lots of people would want to press a key to change a mode, rather than fiddling with the mouse in the field. Maybe I am missing the obvious :-)

Any ideas?



I was wondering the same thing.  I want to build a GCS with hardware buttons to change settings, modes etc... but haven't been able to find anything other than the f keys to change screens etc.  Would be nice to have this in a future release.

This gets my vote too. My mouse hand gets a bit shaky when I start to panic.

The only short-cut keys I've found are these:

  • F12 – disconnect or connect from/to USB or Telemetry
  • F5 – Refresh parameters
  • F2 – change to Flight Data tab
  • F3 – change to Flight Planner tab
  • F4 – change to Configuration tab
  • F5 – Refresh parameter list
  • CTL-G Nmea Output
  • CTL-W Wizard config interface


Also CTRL-S writes parameters to the APM and CTRL-F = Find (if parameter page is active).

Consider opening an issue here with a list of shortcuts you'd all like to see.

Thanks Graham,

I've just posted on a different thread to suggest we could also use a Python script..?
