Just a small bug fix: the previous 2.1 code set the altitude for all waypoints at 75 meters and ignored the altitudes set in the configuration utility (this was a safety measure we were using at the Sparkfun contest and we forgot to switch it back). Jordi has just uploaded ArduPilot 2.1.1 which reads the altitude settings for each waypoint correctly.

Thanks to Bryan Cuervo for catching the bug!

Chris, is the altitude measured from the launch point or AGL or AMSL?

If I want to fly from a park that is 400ft above sea level, then I wanted to fly @200 over the ocean, how would I do this?

If you enter 75 meters for altitude in the configuration utility, the plane will fly 75 meters above "home". It's AGL.
