I'm currently building a Tricopter and hope to use my APM2.5 on it as the FC, but does arducopter support/feature a point of interest function such as that seen in the video here? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t0MgZKKQX6U
I'm not talking about controlling a gimbal to stay trained on a target, I'm talking about actually keeping the front end of a multirotor pointed toward a target location/altitude.
Ok, good to know! Somewhere, lost in the topics, Michael has answered as if the copter doesn't have 3 axis gimbal then will add yaw to keep the heading to the ROI. When it will work, it will be a great feature! How must be defined this in the MP is another mystery but we will figure out.
Great job Dev Team!
Hi there. ROI should work in the next version 2.9 which will go into testing quite soon (within days I expect).
I can't remember if it worked in 2.7.3 or not...I think if you didn't have 3-axis gimbal it would momentarily point at the ROI point but then immediately return to pointing at the next waypoint.
By the way, the CONDITIONAL_YAW command will also definitely work in 2.9 so you can use that to keep the copter pointed in whatever direction you want during the mission.
Yes, it's called ROI (Region of Interest) in the Mission Planner
