CCC editor for Typhoon H User's guide
This website is designed to create CCC (curved cable camera) for your Yuneec Typhoon H (and ONLY the Typhoon H).
First of all, you have to locate the area where you want to fly. Use the google map to drag and zoom to your favorite place. You can also use the upper field and click on the locate button to find the place.
To set the first point of your CCC, simply click on the map. the H will be drawn on the map, facing north with the letter A.
To move this point, click on it and drag it where you want.
To edit this point, go to the waypoints list (on the left) and click on the line with the id A. Now you can adjust :
- Lat : the latitude
- Lng : the longitude
- Yaw : the angle between north and the H in decimal degres. 0° = north, 90° = est, 180° = south, 270° = west
- Alt : the altitude of the H in meters : (not confirmed, but the altitude is relative to the ST16).
- Yam : this is the Yaw of the gimbal. If the Yam is the same as the Yaw, the camera points to the front of the H
- Pitch : this is the angle between the horizon and the camera. 0°=horizontal to 90°=vertical
When adjust is finished, click on the Update button.
Now I can add a second waypoint by clicking on the map. This waypoint will have the letter B with the same altitude, yam and pitch than the first. the third waypoint will have the letter C with the same altitude, yam and pitch than the second and so on.
Insert a waypoint
To insert a new waypoint between two waypoints, click and drag the Plus sign where you want. The inserted point as the average yaw, altitude, pitch and yam of the previous and next points.
Delete a waypoint
On the left panel, click on Functions and click on "Start DELETE mode". then click on the waypoints to delete. When finished, click on "Stop DELETE mode".
Modify global altitude
You can modify the altitude of the whole CCC, that means lowering or raising each points of the CCC at once. On the left panel, click on Functions. Enter a value in meters. By entering a posivite value you will raise the CCC, by entering a negative value you will lower the CCC and click on "Change altitude" button.
Focusing a point on the map like a follow me mode
The function gives you the ability to select one or more points of the CCC and make them pointing a certain point on the map.
On the left side click on POI focus.
Adjust the altitude (in meters) of the point you want to watch. That will set the pitch of the gimble then click on "Start POI mode" button.
Now you can select the waypoint(s) you want by clicking on it (the waypoint turn to red). When finished, click on the map. All the seleted waypoints are now focused on that point.
click on "Stop POI mode.
Circle around a point like an orbit me mode
The function gives you the ability to draw a circle around a certain point on the map.
On the left side click on POI circle.
select the sens of the circle and the number of points (the more you take the more the curve is precise. I never tested 32 points...).
Adjust the altitude (in meters) of the point you want to watch. That will set the pitch of the gimble then click on "Start POI circle" button.
Click on the point on the map that will be the center of the circle.
Click on the first point (the entry) of the circle that will define the radius of the circle.
The circle is created. All the created points have the altitude of the the last point of the CCC (the point B is my example).
Saving the CCC
On the left side click on Menu and click on Save button.
Enter a name for your file without special characters (mybestflight, test1, myCCCoverthesea, etc...) and click on Generate and download the file.
All you have to do now is to copy the downloaded file on your ST16 controler. (directory : Internal storage\flightmode\mission_data)
Editing a CCC
You can upload your own CCC to modify it. On the left side click on Menu and click on Load button.
Click select a file, browser to your CCC and upload it. If the file is "correct" your CCC will be drawn on the screen and you will be able to modify, delete and add waypoints.
Planning your flight at home is VERY
dangerous. There is always differences between what you see on the google map and the reality. A new tree, a new pole, a new house, a bad information, etc... So if you program a CCC with two points A and B because it seems to be clear on the map, an obstacle between these two points may exist in real so your drone will crash.
So my advice is : DON'T PROGRAM A CCC AT HOME WITHOUT PERFECTLY KNOWING THE PLACE YOU ARE GOING TO FLY !
