Hi everyone

I have a question, which is maybe a bit stupid.

How do I have to calculate with coordinates?

Here is my example: I want to fly route which will look like a perfect square on a 2D map. Now: I tried to calculate my coordinates linear. So I started with 4700N/00800E and added 50 to East: 4700N/00850E. Then, I added 50 to North to fly upwards: 4750N/00850E.

That was my final routing:

4700N/00800E 4700N/00850E 4750N/00850E 4750N/00800E 4700N/00800E

It looked like this:

This has 4 corners, but itâs not a square. So my question again: How do I have to calculate with the coordinates to get a perfect square?

Thanks for your help!!
