There is a number of MAVlink parameters which are changed on the autopilot during operation. Some parameters are set on first vehicle connect, some are set during route upload and command execution. Any mavlink parameter supported by the autopilot can be set on vehicle connect using conf file setting vehicle.ardupilot.parameter

Parameters common for fixed wing and copters

Parameter Description
GND_ALT_OFFSET Modified if set_ground_alt_offset is set to yes. See also Set ground altitude offset
MIS_RESTART Modified during commands AUTO and CONTINUE
RALLY_LIMIT_KM Used to keep the hash of uploaded route. See also Saving route hash on vehicle
Ardupilot has the following battery-related parameters:
BATT_LOW_VOLT Battery voltage that triggers a low battery failsafe.
BATT_LOW_MAH Battery capacity at which the low battery failsafe is triggered.
BATT_FS_LOW_ACT Low battery failsafe action



 Note: UgCS interacts only with BATT_FS_LOW_ACT parameter. User has to set manually BATT_LOW_VOLT or\and BATT_LOW_MAH values via Mission Planner.

Copter parameters

Parameter Description
BATT_FS_LOW_ACT Modified if route parameters sets failsafe action on low battery.
FS_EKF_ACTION Modified if route parameters sets failsafe action on GPS signal loss.
FS_THR_ENABLE Modified if route parameters sets failsafe action on RC signal loss.
RTL_ALT Modified if route parameters sets Emergency return altitude.
WP_YAW_BEHAVIOR Set to 0 if autoheading is set to yes. See also Vehicle heading control



Plane and VTOL parameters

Parameter Description
ALT_HOLD_RTL Set if route parameters sets Emergency return altitude.
TRIM_ARSPD_CM Modified when Click&Go command issued on the vehicle.
LAND_FLARE_ALT Set if vehicle profile has "Landing flare altitude" specified.
LAND_FLARE_SEC Set if vehicle profile has "Landing flare time" specified.
LAND_PITCH_CD Set if vehicle profile has "Minimum landing pitch" specified.
TECS_LAND_DAMP Set if vehicle profile has "Controller sink rate to pitch gain during flare" specified.
TECS_LAND_ARSPD Set if vehicle profile has "Airspeed during landing approach" specified.
TECS_LAND_SPDWGT Set if vehicle profile has "Weighting applied to speed control during landing" specified.
TECS_PITCH_MAX Set if vehicle profile has "Maximum pitch in auto flight" specified.
LIM_PITCH_MAX Set if vehicle profile has "Maximum pitch" specified.
THR_MIN Set if vehicle profile has "Minimum throttle" specified.
TECS_LAND_SINK Set if vehicle profile has "Landing sink rate" specified.
RNGFND_LANDING Set if vehicle profile has "Enable rangefinder for landing" specified.
RNGFND_MIN_CM Set if vehicle profile has "Minimum rangefinder distance" specified.
