Step 1: What you need
I got the DJI wookong flight controller multi-waypoint navigation system. This allows for setting many waypoints and controlling the UAV using pre programmed routes through your PC.
You also need to have the WooKong -M flight control system with updated firmware calibrated for your own UAV and transmitter. I'm using the JR-XG8 8 Channel RC transmitter.
Once you have been using the Wookong-m flight control platform with the transmitter and are somewhat comfortable flying your UAV, here's how to get started with the upgraded DJI Wookong-M multi waypoint navigation package:
Step 3: Connect the Datalink
a. The RED light should go on (the red light has a label on the right of it that says DATA / POWER)
-make sure the antennas are connected to the datalink and to the microcontroller on the UAV.
Step 4: Turn it on
a. Plug in both batteries to the via the YELLOW xt-60 connectors or whatever battery / on off mechanism you have on the octocopter
b. DO NOT MOVE the octocopter after plugging it in
Step 5: Turn on the transmitter
a. Flip all the switches AWAY from you (towards the ground, if you are holding it parallel to the ground)
b. Put the throttle (the LEFT gimble stick) downwards, towards you
c. Flip the silver ON/OFF switch in the center of the transmitter UPWARDS (away from you)
d. Put the transmitter in AUTOPILOT (GPS) MODE by flipping the switch in the TOP RIGHT of the transmitter, labeled (GPS / ATT / MANUAL), up towards you, to GPS MODE
