Mission planner circle waypoints

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used the circle waypoints in mission planner to make 3D models i want to use my multirotor to make a 3D model of a building.

My question is how do i make the drone point inward as it travels to each waypoint in the circle so i can take photos of the building in the center of the circle?

Not sure what system you are on but one way you could get this done is to utilize a point of interest IOC function, and then also utilize the Interval Timer setting, telling the drone to take photos every X seconds. By utilizing these two together with a little calculation you can get the exact number of photos at the overlap and side lap you want, fairly autonomously.
