What Flight plan format (.mavlink and .waypoint)


#1

Hey guys,

so when I want to start a flight plan with the sdk. I know how to do it. But I have got a question. Mission planner for example only allows to export the flight plan as an .waypoint file. I have compared it to a .mavlink file and it is as far as I am concerned the same.
So can I use the .waypoint file as a flight plan and start it? Or can I convert it somehow. Would be awesome since it would make planning much better!

Greetings

Fabian

Hi,
If the content is the same, you should be able to just rename the .waypoint file into a .mavlink file.

Awesome thanks! Will give it a try today. Just compared the formats and it is the same. Gonna tell you how it went. I am little nervous, hope it doesn’t crash lol

You can use the simulator to test it if you have a compatible computer.
See this post to know more about the simulator.
