Thanks Wayne,

yes, I understand that with the GCS it is possible to set and transmit new navpoints in real-time. For certain applications (e.g. aerial mapping) it is however more useful to generate the waypoints before flight in a systematic way e.g. in a matrix of X * Y meters with a certain stepsize. The "autopilot" should also trigger the camera shutter, so at each navpoint the camera is triggered. The "autopilot" should also log the attitude parameters at each exposure epoch so the user knows the orientation of the camera during the exposure, e.g. nadir angle, as starting parameters for the rectification process.
