Upon connecting GPS, the following possibilities appear:
- The copter can remain at the same point when flying outside
- Autonomous missions may be programmed in the QGroundControl application
- Flying may be performed by global points in standalone mode using the simple_offboard module.
The GPS module is connected to "GPS" and "I2C" (compass) connectors of the flight controller.
If GPS is connected, magnetometers are to be re-calibrated in the QGroundControl application via a Wi-Fi or USB connection.
Next, GPS is to be enabled in parameter
EKF2_AID_MASK (when EKF2 is used) or
LPE_FUSION (when LPE is used). When using LPE the weight of the magnetometer should be more 0 (
ATT_W_MAG = 0.1).
