    Although this gui has been tested..
    I take no responsibility for anything..

    This gui has been tested and designed for the Yuneec typhoon H.
    Open"DroneGPSWaypointCreator_v0.75"
    Once open click "open waypoint"
    select "stock" file supplied .. Has a max of 25 way points
    Minimize Gui

    Window in background Is Geoplaner..
    Select location and set way points ..All waypoints will show on right side..
    Once complete Save file as GPX

    Restore Gui
    Open GPX file with Gui.. All waypoints will be listed in Gui..
    You can adjust altitude. Default is set to 5 meters..
    Save file
    Connect ST-16 transmitter to pc and copy and paste to "Internal storage\flightmode\mission_data"
    folder via USB

    Using Curve Cable Cam Task (CCC) the file will show up on list..

    Always check and double check data.

    This is a early version.. but has been tested minimally.. You can adjust all settings but for the most part altitude change is all that is needed..

    Note: Yaw and Yam setting must be the exact same.. This will control Flight speed and camera yam while in motion..

    Basic function of gui is to merge GPX file to CCC Saved file..

    Use Global mode for camera while in CCC and you will have full control with sticks..so camera direction for the most part in not needed ..

    Future versions will be android based and will be loaded onto ST-16..

    I personally have had a major part in creating this program (gui)
    This was ment to be a private program and not for the public but with the ongoing requests for a waypoint creator i have decided to share it with everyone.

    I decided to use a free online waypoint site designed for gps units as the backbone for the creator in order to keep R&D costs down.

    This pc based program was designed as a test platform and is in its infant stages.
    A Android based version is in the testing stages which will allow for a self contained app that will be designed for beginners..

    I released this in the hope of input from everyone for future released..

    I have been using it for over 20 flights and has worked amazing.

    Enjoy..

    I got to the point of loading the stock GPX file and added my location, but now from there how do I add way points? Clicking on the map did nothing for me.

    Hi,
    this is great stuff! Geoplaner.com is new for me. May I steal this idea to use it? I have an own CCC waypoint editor added to my FlightLog analyser, but for this I could only import one piont from OpenStreetMap. To import a whole GPX file is the point, I miss at the moment. Currently I can only export to KML or GPX. Thanks for the great effort!
    Cool new ideas - and have to go back coding ;-).

    Yes thank you I had figured that out after fooling around with it some. Great work so far but tweaking it for the beginner is a must.
