GPS format

Hi i am relatively new to this so please don't bash me with my question, i am curious what gps format does the arducopter read or save ? My project requires the UAV to look for a target and fly there, we are hoping that we can maybe find the rough distance of the target and the UAV then it will do some calculation on board that will bring the UAV to the target and drop the payload.

  • If I understood you correctly, the datum is WGS84, and format is DD (degrees.decimals)

    Craig mentioned protocols (the way it's communicating with GNSS module, but I assume you meant the format and referance system that is "stored"  - as in waypoints - right ?)

  • Depends on the module that is installed but by default it is Ublox on Ublox GPS modules.
