I can fly a quad use simple SITL and communicate to QGC in one computer. After takeoff, I switch the flight mode to follow me and the quad flew towards to an unknown place. Just wonder to know how can I change the QGC’s GPS coordinates? Thanks!
You can’t manually do that.
On Android you can fake it in developer mode.
I assume you are talking about a tablet feature, not a QGC feature.
Yes, I’m talking about faking the location on Android itself, not specifically within QGC running on Android.
@takumi : I had the exact same doubt.
I am now simulating two drones using jmavsim. I have two drones on the same map and can control them individually through qGCS. I would like to know how can I get the second drone to follow the first one.
If I can’t change QGCs gps, maybe I can add a nsh command to change target gps in px4 firmware.
@aysh_shariff ,wow, interesting! How did you do that?
I used different system ids.
Could you tell me more about changing the target GPS ?
I replace the follow_target_topic.lat and follow_target_topic.lon in the function handle_message_follow_target(), not smart, but it seems work.
@takumi You replace it with ?
Do you hardcode the values?
I am trying to get the second drone follow the first one… It seems I need to send follow_target message from mavlink_messages.cpp… Do you have any idea on how to go about this ?
