Re: [Paparazzi-devel] clarification regrading some terms used in flight

Hello Manish,

Check out these pages:

In general, the alt is absolute, while height, security height and home_mode_height are relative to ground_alt. Altitude displayed is absolute, not relative. Note the convention of height for relative and alt for absolute.

(Someone correct me if I am wrong).

Hopefully that helps.

I am not very clear about the terms  altitude, ground altitude and secure height used in the flight plan and relation between them. I am currently using basic flight plan for Microjet airframe.
Why does ground station show the current altitude some non zero value before the launch of aircraft. Shouldn't initial value of the current altitude of aircraft be zero?  And is secure height relative to some predefined value or it is absolute?

Can somebody give me a short description about these term?
