ManualCopterPilotingItf Horizontal Velocity

I think this may be a feature request, but is there any way to set the horizontal velocity and direction on the ManualCopterPilotingItf. The way it is right now you have to specify %x and %y, which not useful.

I realize the guided interface may have part of this functionality, but it also apparently has issues with fast refresh rates: Drone twitching during GuidedFlight


Unfortunately it is not possible to control the drone velocity the way you would like.

Using the GuidedPilotingItf won’t cut it either, I’m afraid.

Best regards,


If you upload waypoints to the drone, does the onboard flight controller have the ability to hold a specific speed and direction or does it also have to use percentage based controls?

The MAVLink FlightPlan allows to do this, yes.
