...but using MavLink is not the easy way. I might not be up to date on MavLink support, but last time I checked it was basically still at "proof of concept" stage.

Suggest you look at connecting the lisa's modem UART to an FTDI adapter (or similar) on the Rpi's USB, then write a python ivy agent to direct the flight plan. You could use the UART on the Rpi's breakout header too (I usually keep that spare for serial connection on the bench)
Basically, as far as the autopilot is concerned, the Rpi is the ground station. You might like to snoop on interaction between the usual GCS program and autopilot (in sim), then replicate simple interactions with scripts and build up from there.
Of course you don't have to use python, other languages are supported too.
