    Flying Aero using Dronekit


      Hello, I was wondering how exactly flying the Intel Aero using Dronekit or any API works. I know it sends it the mavlink messages and gives it a waypoint and it would go to that point but what I noticed is that the when trying to fly the Aero using Dronekit that the controller has to be turned on and connected to the Aero for it to arm and takeoff. Wouldn't that interfere with the mavlink command. If the Aero is flying to the waypoint and I adjust something in terms of the throttle or yaw, would that affect the mission or not. Is the controller meant to be paired in order to act as a failsafe measure if something were to go wrong with the Aero mission. Thank you
