New! APM Planner 1.0



Over the past couple of weeks I have been busy reworking my original APM Mission Planner. Together with my partner/designer Samantha Nelson we have focused on improving the APM Planner’s interface, ideally resulting in a more intuitive user experience.   

Below are a couple screenshots of the new APM Planner!

  • I dowload google earth plugin on my computer for my google browser 

    I would like how link Google earth plugin beetween APM planner 1.0.84 

    I am so confused 

  • Yes Gustav, I undertand that by GPS fences.

    Sonia: Typically you load KMZ file into Google Earth, not the Mission Planner. Just download it here. If you don't have the plugin running on your PC, you can download that here

    Overview – Google Earth
  • Sonia, if Google Earth runs on your computer, APM Planner should work.

    You have an internet connection when you set up a mission?


    Martin, I think Chris is talking about "Geo Fencing", where you prevent the aircraft from going outside certain boundaries ?

  • I want to know how to load kmz files on APM Planner 1.0.84 but it seems it is not working well 

    I make some research and i discover we need to have aplugin of google earth 

    I ask you how insert plugin of google earth in APM planner 1.0.84

  • Not exactly, the fences will be very usefull, but is not what i was needing now.

    Mi missions are taking pictures of certain lot, not always the lot limits are fences or roads or things that I can view in GE images.3692291827?profile=originalnow see that other case when the lot limits does´t match with anythig viewable.

    3692292008?profile=originalthis is one use, other could be mark objects to avoid, like electric lines, antennas and objects like that.

    Martin: We'll be adding "GPS fences" soon. Is that what you want?

  • Now Everithing is working perfect and we (Franco & I) are flying complete missions.
    But we need to load polygons (kml) in the planner to have the boundaries of the lots that need to fly
    marked. because otherwise I have to switch all the time between GE & planner while planing each mission.

    THANKS !

  • I would like to add google earth plugin on APM Planner 1.0.84. Did you know how it works

  • Chris : works :).
