GCS Circle Waypoint
« on: June 21, 2018, 01:42:40 am »
I have used the Path Planner and loaded and flew a path with multiple waypoints.  It works well, however when I set a circle waypoint with Yaw control pointing to center POI, The quad makes multiple circles and never goes to the next waypoint.  Anybody know why.

That may not be well tested in releases since it was coded.

You might try a larger circle.  It would work better if your PathFollower is not particularly well tuned.

Do any other yaw options work better?

Did you setup a End condition ? Without this the vehicle stay in circle mode.
EndCondition will be set to "PointingTowardsNext" or simply "Timeout" and condition set to "On Condition Next Wp"
