I am not sure if this is a ArduCopter question or a Mission Planner question.
I am wanting my copter to terrain follow when in Guided Mode.
Does anyone know whether it’s the GCS software or the Flight Controller Firmware / Parameters that would control this?
It works in Guides mode.
You need a Lidar or Sonar and set few parameters to make it works.
We are currently using SRTM for our terrain following in our AUTO missions and this is working quite well. If we need to send the drone via the ground station (Mission Planner) to another location by right clicking on the screen and selecting Fly To Here, it asks for an altitude which we provide, and then heads to that location. The drone goes into Guided mode and definitely does not follow terrain when doing so. I think we are using ArduCopter firmware version 4.1.7 and because it’s our production drone we don’t usually update to the latest stable release unless there is an issue (If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it)
Has the code been changed recently (after 4.1.7) that you know of?
Is there anything else we can be doing to change it’s behaviour?
Will terrain follow in GUIDED mode only work with a Lidar or Sonar?
