Is fine position adjustment by button a possibility?

Hi all,

Apologies upfront if this is the wrong category to post this.

What I am trying to understand is if there is functionality available in QGC, or some sort of plugin, that would enable predefined small movements activated by touchscreen buttons when flying and utilizing FPV?

To better explain, here is an example. Imaging I flew the drone to a point and then initiated a position hold 100 feet up and a couple of feet off and facing, a tall structure such as smokestack or radio tower. I’m viewing it through my FPV and what I want to be able to do is make slight adjustments to the drone’s position, say a couple of inches at a time, by pressing buttons on the touch screen of my controller. 6 buttons, one each for right, left, up, down, back, or forward.

Is this possible?

My current build: PX4, Pixhawk2 Black Cube, Herelink Air Unit / Controller, Here2, ArduPilot Copter. I have the latest firmware updates.

Thanks in advance for any replies.


Hi Pete! Welcome to the group.
Well it’s not the wrong place but perhaps not the best place.
Enter an issue here and see what the devs have to say:

Thank you! I will do that…

I see you did - and you blamed me :-).
No guarantee what might might happen, but you are more likely to get results there.
