DJI s1000 and Phantom 2

Hi,

We have used the GS (DJI Ground  Station) app on  Ipad tablet   in combination with the DJI 2.4 Ghz datalink to do  mission planning for a Phantom 2 and a S1000 DJI units we have. Using a lapsometer in the cameras  that we  empirically set to 3-5 secs.  After using the emotion with the Ebee, this is a much easier, trouble free and precise way to do the mission planning. 

Has Pix4dCapture  some of the features of  emotion? is Pix4dcapture similar to GS?  can I use it with DJI Phantom 2 or S1000 ?

Thanks

Hi Alejandro,

Pix4Dcapture does not support Phantom 2 but supports Phantom 2 Vision and Phantom 2 Vision+.
Our developers are not currently working on the integration of DJI S1000 but it is expected to be compatible with the latest versions of Android and iOS Pix4Dcapture.

However, it has not been tested yet and it is not possible to select this specific drone from the list of drones. You should then select the drone having the same connection mode. It seems like the device connects to the controller via a USB cable so you could for instance select Phantom 3 Professional that connects in the same way. If you wish to give it a try, we will be glad to read your feedback.

Our app allows the drone to autonomously fly a grid mission and take images (not videos) with sufficient overlap in order to achieve the best results with Pix4Dmapper, our computer software, to generate outputs such as point cloud, 3D mesh, DSM, orthomosaic and more. Accurate coordinates are assigned to the images (geotags) for processing. Image geolocation is not compulsory but facilitates processing and reduces processing time. Note that a free flight mode is also available for advanced users. Images are captured given a space interval (vertical / horizontal distance), meaning the user does not need to trigger the camera shutter but has to manually control the drone. Flying with the app is not required to successfully process projects, but it aims at assisting our users to optimize their flight plans.

To get a feeling of the app can do, we would suggest that you give it a try following our instructions:
