Sorry for reviving this post. This is for anyone else who was struggling with this like I was:
I was able to run a waypoints file generated by Mission Planner on the Bebop2 drone in simulation (Sphinx simulation). I did it by renaming the file from
***.mavlink The final change I had to make was converting the latitude and longitude requested in the file to values relative to the latitude and longitude of the drone in simulation (latitude of 48.879257 and longitude of 2.368004 work fine).
Note: If you do not change the requested waypoints, the drone goes into a pause state and does not move, which leads you to think you have not done something correctly. I assume the drone goes into a pause state for requesting waypoints 100’s or 1000’s of km away. If you change the requested waypoints to something closer, the drone will stay in a start state and move to the waypoint.
An example of a mavlink file and a longer description on what each value means can be found on another question I asked.
