"alt" is the altitude above sea level, "ground_alt" is the altitude of the ground above sea level, so your aircraft default altitude is (alt - ground_alt).
If not specified the altitude of the waypoints is "alt", but you can also set the parameter "height" which is replaced at compilation by (ground_alt+height). Their is a bug in the graphical flight plan editor with "height", I'm trying to fix this.

To export a kml log, open your flight log with the log plotter, in the menu of your aircraft you have a kml export button.

Hi all,

In the begining of an flight plan we have to define the ground_alt and the alt variables for default altitudes.

<flight_plan name lat0 lon0 ground_alt security_height qfu alt max_dist_from_home>

Where alt is the real altitude starting on sea level and ground_alt is from the ground?

And in the waypoints. What altitude we are specifying?

Another question. It's possible to make a log of a simulation to later see the flight pattern on google earth?
