@ne0fhyk is there a way to test follow me in Tower. ie can you inject a path into tower to see how the drone will behave?

@billbonney FollowApi now supports client-specified locations, so you could write something to do that pretty easily I would think.

So have a SITL setup with a simluated drone, and then send a path to Tower to calculate an control the drone position?
I’m just famialirizing myself with the follow algorithm now

Well, not really a path, but a sequence of locations. Tower itself doesn't make use of the client-specified locations to my knowledge, but could.
What I have in my app (Solex) is a way to just fly around and record the locations, then play them back as though a "target" is running along that path. So you can get a Solo to act like it's chasing something that isn't there (more useful than it sounds)
