7.11 Flight Fly View
When the RPA has to be flown, you need to go to fly view. This is the area from where the flights are managed and tracked. The flight fly view has various options displayed on the left drawer as below.
Fly View
1) Take-off
Once clicked on Take-Off, the ARM and takeoff commands are sent to RPA. RPA will do the basic pre-flight check and do the takeoff if everything is proper.
2) Land
The land button enables you to make the RPA land. Once it is clicked, the RPA will stop by slowing down the flying and start coming back to the point given to land after clicking on the land button. This button will be enabled only if a flight has already taken off. If the take-off command is not given then this button will remain in disabled mode.
3) RTL
Return to Land (RTL) is used for an emergency landing at home. The device will find the shortest distance to land at home. If the rally points are added to the plan, then the device will check the minimum distance between either the home or rally point for landing. The device will select a minimum distance for a safe landing.
4) Pause
The pause command will give pause instructions to the RPA. Under this condition, the RPA will pause at the point it is flying. It will go into 'hovering' mode at the given location. Once pause is active then the RPA will enable resume action.
5) Resume
The resume command will give operation resume instructions to the RPA. Under this condition the RPA will resume the flight from the point where it was paused.
6) Live Details
Few number of parameters of the performance of RPA has shown on the Fly view screen. The important one is the heading position of the RPA. Using the magnetometer, the AeroGCS will show the live heading position of the heading of RPA. Similarly, the AeroGCS will show the value of the battery available. Based on the status of the remaining power of the battery, the AeroGCS will showcase the usage and remaining power in the battery.
Live Details of the drone
AeroGCS shows the position of the drone using navigation parameters like longitude and latitude. These readings are taken from navigation equipment like GPS. Altitude is also shown as positioning parameter of RPA. The altitude value is driven by the barometer of the flight controller hardware.
The AeroGCS shows nearly real-time values of Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) to show the self-position of RPA. Under this live data, the parameters like roll, pitch, and yaw is shown. Live Tracking
The AeroGCS continuous tracks the live position of the RPA. It gets latest coordinates of RPA position and then AeroGCS shows the current position of the RPA on the mission plan. Whatever distance the RPA has covered, it will show the distance covered with heading direction of the RPA. If there is latency between the AeroGCS and RPA then it AeroGCS will show the position with latency.
