Waypoint turn types

UgCS desktop route planning allows specifying different turn types – i.e. the way the drone passes the waypoint. There are 2 different route planning modes for DJI autopilots: fixed-point turn mode (Stop and Turn) and adaptive coordinated turn mode (Adaptive Bank Turn). It is possible to choose turn type for each Waypoint, Circle, and Perimeter. The default turn mode in the system is Stop and turn.

Turn typeSupportNotes
Stop and TurnYesAircraft flies to the first fixed point accurately stop at the fixed point and then flies to the next fixed point.
Adaptive Bank TurnYesAircraft will not stop at the fixed point, but will “cut the corner” and pass through without a stop.

The maximum corner radius can be adjusted in UgCS for DJI mobile applications in “drone-specific settings”.

NOTE: In most cases, actions will not function with Adaptive Bank turn
