Flight Planner Question

Hi All,


There is a way to loiter until a specific altitude is reached?


I wish to program a mission for an AutoLanding that start from a specific altitude to begin a correct landing circuit.


Thanks a Lot,


here is my last WeekEnd:



look at 6.31

  • I can't get this to work. Is the code still working?

    Yes, you can do it two ways.

    The usual (lazy) way I do it is just put in a 2 (or more) turn loiter at the desired altitude.  For my missions 2 turns is always sufficient to get down to the desired altitude.

    You can also do it with a series of 3 commands.  I believe it would go like this for example...

    mission command 9 - Waypoint (before loiter)

    mission command 10 - Condition Change Alt

    mission command 11 - Do Jump (to command 13)

    mission command 12 - Loiter unlimited

    mission command 13 - Waypoint (after loiter and altitude change)

    That will execute like this:  After the waypoint (9) is reached the plane will head to the loiter point and stay in that loiter till the altitude of command 10 is reached, after which the mission will jump to waypoint 13.
