Dear Forum,I try to send a mavlink message out of the 1Hz userhook (ArduCopter321,APM2.6). The code should read in the current position, put some offset to it and send it as a new waypoint with a…Continue

It should be still available, using Spline Waypoints in Mission Planner:

Last time I tried it, it wasn't as smooth as my SplineNav code, I don't know if they've improved that or not it the latest release.

I think this is what you want:

Let me know if you need any assistance with it. What project are you working on?

We are programming a simple quadcopter swarm of minimum two for our bachelor thesis.

With XBees we have set up a simple communication over uart and on SITL we have learned now to steer the

copter with simple vector and waypoint methods.

As I saw your work I thougt it could be helpful to let the swarm fly more dynamic.

We let the copters navigate only over GPS and let them exchange their position over uart,XBee.

But at the moment we have some more steps to do as we have no experience in flying. Our first flight on Friday in AUTO MODE ended in a crash.... ;)
