Circle flight plan

Circle flight plan

The circle tool makes the route going around the specified point at a required distance the vehicle facing to the center (if autopilot supports it). If it is not required for the vehicle to face center, set the Yaw angle to 0°, and the vehicle will fly facing the flight direction. Creating a circle is similar to creating a waypoint. To change the radius of the circle, drag the circular part of the pin. The radius can be specified in the properties of the circle in numerical format. Like with waypoints, circles can be added to the route in sequence.

Number of laps - number of full turns the drone has to make around the circle.

Fly clockwise flag indicates whether the drone will fly clockwise (checked) or counterclockwise (unchecked).

Number of approximating points - number of basic waypoints generated. If left blank, this parameter will be automatically determined from the radius of the circle.

Follow terrain if enabled all generated waypoints have the same altitude from the ground (AGL altitudes are equal). If disabled, all the points will have equal AMSL altitudes.

Action execution. Shows when actions are to be performed:

  • ONLY_AT_START - only at the starting point;
  • ACTIONS_EVERY_POINT - at each point;
  • ACTIONS_ON_FORWARD_PASSES - at each point of passes.
    But when turning, the camera should turn off.

Avoid obstacles

Avoid terrain

No actions at last point - do not perform actions at the last point.

Altitude mode - AMSL, AGL, Smart AGL, or Rangefinder to set Flight height.
