MISSION Planner Circle around a POI

Hello

I'm Having problems to configure on mission Planner the POI

I want to make a circle with my quad, with the camera always pointing to the center.

I try different things and the camera always change the POI.

The Waypoint editor should be more user friendly.

Another thing is to change the speed of the drone between each waypoint.

Can anyone help?

  • If you just want a circle there's no need for the more complex ROI stuff, just set CIRCLE_RADIUS and switch to CIRCLE flight mode, it will circle a point that distance ahead of the drone. If you don't touch the yaw/rudder it will stay pointing toward the centre of the circle. If you do touch the yaw it will break out into manual yaw control.

    You need AC3.0+ for CIRCLE mode to work though.

    • Ah! Your (old) post was my missing link as I was trying to decipher how my loiter_turns mission command was supposed to work (wasn't using ROI). My quad did indeed circle a phantom point that was directly ahead of it circle_radius away. For the life of me I couldn't find this little factoid in the docs. Thank you! - Tim
