Mission Planner - Python Script

Hi,

I've got a question about Python Scripts in the Mission Planner:

I want to send waypoints to my Arducopter with a Python Script. I already found this page: http://code.google.com/p/arducopter/wiki/Python.

Unfortunately there is no information about how I can send whole waypoints to the quadrocopter.

I would be glad if someone would have an answer!

  • I'm also very interested in this added scripting functionality.

    Additionally I'm wondering is it possible to add custom commands to the Mission Planner? It says these can be modified in the MAVLink Parameters Window, but I can't seem to find this. (http://dev.ardupilot.com/wiki/mavlink-parameters/)

    • For the uplink I want to add a 'Drop Bottle' and 'Activate Flight Termination' command for the Outback Challenge.
    • For the downlink I want to monitor an additional Outback Challenge Status Parameter (incl Loss of Datalink Mode, Loss of GPS Mode, Flight Termination Mode)

    Also I'm wondering does the Mission Planner send a heartbeat to the ArduPilot? If so, is there a way to change the frequency at which this is sent?

    the next mp version will have more access to the internal mavlink processor. I will need to update this post once its released as new commands will be available under "MAV"

  • Developer

    do you want to send guided mode wp's.

    or a whole mission?
