I would believe so. As I understand it, the blocks perform certain actions (like figure-8, goto, loiter, etc) on the waypoints. So if a block refers to a waypoint that is not there, you will get an error.

Please tell me if I have worked out the issue.

What I did was:

1. Copy Basic flight plan
2. Change some waypoint names in the basic flight plan
3. Try to compile

It seems that the change in waypoint names is what is creating the problem. The 
blocks are looking for specific waypoint names and they are not there so it 
wont compile.

Is this correct?

Kindest regards,

Hi Nathan,

There was a forum, it filled with spam and died. What with IRC, wiki,
mailing list and other forums (e.g. rcgroups), it just wasn't very

Post your broken flight plan (and maybe the last working one too, if
you still have it).

I have been testing out Paparazzi for a couple of weeks now and have read most 
of the devel list. I have been able to get simulations to work and I have 
played around with changing a few configurations in waypoints etc.

I decided to build my own flight plan so I copied the basic flight plan and 
then made some changes to where the map should be (in Australia) and then added 
a couple of way points (over time) using the way point editor. Every time I 
changed something I saved the flight plan and then rebuilt the whole 
simulation. The last time I did this (I moved a way point in waypoint editor) I 
was no longer able to compile the flight plan. When it gets to compiling it it 
just says warn or / or /home, there are no messages about something being wrong.

I have hardly changed a thing, a couple of waypoints and the originating 
location. Can someone point me to a fix? I would really like to get past this 
silly error so I can continue to build a real flight plan.

A couple of other things

Also I noticed that in my build the PFD is back the front. When the aircraft 
turns left the PFD shows it turning right but the 2D map shows it travelling 

Why do you not have a forum?

Kindest regards,
