I did something similar, over the Ivybus...  Since (at the time, at least)
waypoints couldn't actually be added in-flight, I created a number of
'spare' waypoints cached off in the corner of the flight plan, which the
external program would then move into position as required.

This approach worked for the most part, but doing the mass-movement of 10+
waypoints at almost the same time would bottleneck somewhere along the line,
resulting in lost waypoint moves.  I was trying to move the waypoints
quickly, so I couldn't wait to receive the waypoint move confirmation,
etc...  Ended up just broadcasting the move commands twice, with short
pauses (0.5 seconds or so) between each command.

Does anyone have information related how new waypoints are uploaded via

I am writing a program that uploads waypoints from an external server to the
active flight plan. I know I can add waypoints via the GCS GUI but I need
this to be automatic.

Is there an xml file that I can export to? Or do I need to send messages
through ivybus?
