Coordinates to .plan File


Is there a way to upload exact coordinates into qGroundControl to create a flight path? If not, is there a way to create a script to turn a set of coordinates into a .plan file that can then be imported into qGroundControl? I’m very new to this, so any help is appreciated. Thanks!

Hmm, not sure if there is a way to do it directly into Qgroundcontrol, but you can create a custom script for it. Qgroundcontrol normally takes KML files as inputs for missions, so I would look up the exact format it uses. The GPS coordinates into local coordinates can be done using the UTM system (there exist libraries which can do this for you).

That is one way to do it. Not sure if it is the most optimal or easiest solution.
