Click & Go command

Click & Go mode allows to interactively command vehicle to fly to a target location by clicking on the map. Once the location is reached, the copter will hover at the reached location, waiting for the next command. This behavior is implemented as a mini-mission containing two waypoints: current drone position and target point.

In order to start Click & Go mission, set a target point on the map to which the copter has to fly and confirm it.

  • Click the "Click & Go" command;
  • Click on the map to set the target point;
  • Adjust additional parameters “AGL alt”, “Speed” and “Heading” if needed and confirm to send the command to the drone;
  • Press the green check button or the Enter key to confirm.

The heading is the angle between the north direction and the vehicle bow. By default, “Heading” is set collinearly according to the flight direction. The drone will fly to the new target point all the way at the set “Heading” angle after the command is sent to the vehicle. If the “Heading” field is left blank (not 0, but empty) - the vehicle will fly using the current heading. It is also possible to adjust the heading by moving the arrow of the target waypoint.

When performing Click & Go mode for a drone on the ground it firstly flies up to “Minimal safe altitude” (default – 5m, can be changed at Settings – Drone Specific Settings) and then proceeds to the selected point.

It may be necessary to set the Take-off point altitude (Take-off point altitude).

If an action trigger (Camera by time, Camera by distance and etc.) is interrupted with Click & Go command, this action will not be performed after clicking the Continue button. Actions at the next waypoints will work as usual.

Continue button will be inactive if Click & Go action is interrupted i.e. by pressing the Hold button.
