Flight Plan

In this segment the flight lines and flight parameters are uploaded to the Marlyn’s autopilot, meaning that during the flight Marlyn can fly the mission independently of the ground station. The Flight plan segment appears as shown.

Upload Flight Plan

Click ‘Upload’, then while uploading the flight plan, check that all parameters in both columns are as expected, especially the safety features. 

If a flight line is uploaded correctly to the aircraft it will turn grey on the map that is also shown at this stage. When the upload is complete you will see all flight lines on the map, and an output reading ‘Upload Successful’. Zoom in to have a final review of the flight plan, by pinching (touchscreen) or putting the mouse on the map and scrolling (non-touchscreen).
