Change Altitude of Take-off mode
Hello !! I followed VOXL m500 instruction changed QGC to Position Mode . When I use takeoff mission but I can not change the Altitude
of takeoff mission (I had changed to 0.5 m but the UAV still head up to 2.5m )
Please show me how to change the alt
Hi @mr-TOKI ,
There's two modes being mentioned above,
takeoff missionaltitude, are you setting up waypoints in QGC? Normally the
missionmode is used for outdoor flight scenarios, so when I see you wanting to set an altitude of 0.5m, I'm thinking you are trying to use
offboardmode and have a program control the flight?
If that's the case, and fairly easy example of that is found here:
BUT be careful disabling the default "figure 8 mode" in the
voxl-vision-px4.conffile, which is enabled by default. This will automatically have the m500 fly figure 8's
1.5mabove takeoff point, which is perhaps what you are experiencing?
For reference on the 'figure 8 mode' flag, see this line:
oh I see thank you. And do you know how much weight that VOXL m500 drone can lift. Thank you !!!
Hi @mr-TOKI ,
We've listed 1kg on the datasheet here: https://docs.modalai.com/voxl-m500-functional-description/
@modaltb How do we change this height when doing mavros control. It seems like it always goes to the default 2.5 m.
The first result leads to PX4's takeoff parameters documentation, here: https://docs.px4.io/main/en/flight_modes/takeoff.html
It describes a parameter "MIS_TAKEOFF_ALT Target altitude during takeoff (default: 2.5m)"
You could try working with the MIS_TAKEOFF_ALT parameter? Since its default is 2.5m it might be related to what you are looking for?
